|“...May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love.”|
(Ephesians 3:17, AMP)
|Established in Love|
There is tremendous power in love! In the same way that a tree will grow taller and stronger when its roots grow deep, you will be stronger and rise higher when you are rooted and established in love.
How do you establish yourself in love? It starts by making a choice. When you choose to say “yes” to love, you are saying “yes” to everything God is because God is love! Then, everyday choose to love through your actions by modeling your life according to I Corinthians 13. That means choosing to be patient and kind. It means not seeking your own way, not being jealous or boastful. When you choose love, you are showing the world that God is first place in your life. The more you choose to walk in love, the deeper and stronger your roots will grow.
Remember, love is the greatest thing. It is all that will last in eternity. Choose to establish yourself in love and let it be firm within you. Let His love build security in you and empower you to live the life of blessing He has in store for you.
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, establish me in Your love. Show me how to love others the way You love me. Thank You for setting me free and empowering me to live the overcoming life You have prepared for me in Jesus’ name! Amen.”|
