“That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love” (Ephesians 3:16-17)
Christ the Firstborn, who set the standard, is the pattern and we should be conformed to His image. This is the hope and promise that Scripture speaks of. We are strengthened to walk humbly in the way He established and are called to always follow Him in that way. Be strengthened in the power of the Holy Spirit to humbly walk with the Lord, being rooted and grounded in His love.
Lord, there are the longings of my heart, but You know where I often get off track and wander in a different direction. Lead me, Lord, in the right way so that I would simply and humbly walk with You. Help me now and forever to live into the life for which You have called me. Help me to not wander astray, but follow You in all of Your ways until that day when I stand before You face to face.
Lord Jesus, You know all that is needed. You know where I am, where I am going, and all that needs to happen. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of salvation and let nothing hinder me from following You. Ground me in Your love so that I may learn from You how to love my neighbor as myself. Teach me all that You know I need to learn and grow in me the eternal way of life. Amen.
