In today’s QT, Paul prays for the Ephesian church. I prays hat God strengthens their inner being with the power through his Spirit, so that Christ may dwell in their hearts through faith, and so they may grasp how wide, how long, and how deep is the love of Christ. And notes that knowing this love surpasses knowledge.
It’s so ridiculous how easily I lose grasp of my faith. It’s so foolish to lose grasp of it over small things through the small creaks that Satan tries to sneak through. When this happens, my heart becomes heavy, and I feel weak. I am weak, but I have no reason to feel weak when I have faith in Jesus. It’s when I’ve lost grip of my faith that I feel troubled. It’s when I think and try do myself without Jesus that I’m lost. There is only one remedy for this type of funk, and that’s is to kneel before the Father, repent for the lack of faith, and ask for faith. And through this faith, I’m in God’s peace, and there’s nothing like God’s peace.
