My dear cousin, who is more like my sister, sent me this text message: “Sunsets, sunrises, stars and the moon.” It reminded me of the vast magnificence of our universe. It reminded me of how infinitesimal we are, how very small we are.
And yet, God’s love is poured out upon us every day. No matter how small we are in God’s universe, God’s big love is ours. God chooses us individually and singles us out as beloved children.
I share with you today this prayer from the letter to the Ephesians.
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 grow 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.
– Ephesians 3:16-2, NIV
