“And to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19
I love praise and worship music. It really moves me and helps me to focus my thoughts on who God is. There have been many times when a particular song has just completely filled me up. I can’t explain it any other way except that I feel like I can’t possibly take in any more awareness of God’s greatness. I’m completely full of praise for God.
And then. . . I start to overflow – with tears. Tears of gratitude and love. Tears from feeling so undeserving of His affection for me. I am filled to the measure of all of the fullness of God – well, at least the fullness I can take in. The more I grow in my relationship with the Lord, the more I’m able to take in. My capacity expands. My understanding grows. Our relationship becomes richer.
The best part is that there is no limit to this measure. God is beyond my understanding and His greatness is unfathomable. I’ll spend the rest of my life and all of eternity learning about Him and praising Him. It’s never ending.
Lord, your love endures forever. It will never wear out or run dry. You will never stop loving me – even when I disappoint you. Please expand my capacity to experience your love , and because of that, be able to love others like I should. Fill me up, Lord, so I overflow with your love.
