“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.” – Timothy Keller
I have been so humbled the last couple of days reading about and experiencing God’s love for me.
This verse stopped me in my tracks. It gave me a new confidence in my faith. I know God, but more importantly, He knows me. I have purposed to remind myself this everyday.
I know God and He knows me.
God knows you.
May you realize that you are cared for, personally known and deeply loved by God.
This is my prayer for you this week:
When I think of the wisdom and scope of God’s plan, 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 give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, show deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is great that you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. May he be given glory in the church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages. Amen (Ephesians 3:14 -21 NLT)
