O Lord my God, You have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all Your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.  Psalm 40:5

God is all this and more in my life.  He is my be-all, end-all, know-it-all, take-care-of-it-all, so-don’t-worry-about-nothin-ever, always amazing, incredibly loving, awesome filled, atonishment provoking, shockingly forgiving, incredibly faithful Father. 

He is my everything.  His love is perfect.  His plan is perfect.

This is my prayer for you today –

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.  I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit.  Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him.  Your roots will go down into God’s love and keep you strong.  And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high and how deep His love is.  May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.  Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever!  Amen.   Ephesians 3:14-21
