I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:16-19)
We’ve all heard that “we are what we eat,” meaning that what we consume is a huge factor in our physical health. It’s true of our spiritual health as well: what we fill our minds and hearts with is a huge factor in the quality of our relationship with God. So we pray that God’s Spirit will strengthen our faith in Christ, and feed on the astounding love revealed in God’s Word, rather than stuffing ourselves full of empty calories in the form of public opinion and popular entertainment. The more we feast on Scripture, prayer, worship, and service, the more satisfied we are by the goodness and love of God.
Lord God, feed us with Your Word to grow our faith, and satisfy our spirits with Your Love, in Jesus, amen.
