IAM Rooted in Love

Ephesians 3:16-19 NLT 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.

Let the roots of your heart and life grow deep into God’s love. Transformation starts at the instant we choose to believe. The real growth happens on a daily basis. Ask God to reveal more of his love to you. Ask God to give you love for the difficult people in your life. Ask Jesus to make a home inside of your heart. A visitor stops over for maybe an hour or so, then leave. I need more than a visit from Jesus. I need Jesus to setup permanent residence in my heart and mind!

Can you trust in God’s perfect love? God’s love solves every problem, argument, pain, bondage and addiction. Every other love can’t compare to God’s love. When Jesus lives inside of you, there won’t be room for everything else unworthy.

God’s love makes us stable and strong. Make your home in God’s love. God’s love does not end. It takes serious mental power to even understand its size, depth and length! It’s my prayer for you that you experience God’s love. Experiencing love brings us to a depth of understanding. Reading or hearing about it does not compare to first hand experiencing the wonderful amazing love of our God.

Your new life started as an infant little sapling planted in good soil.

Your power and depth of roots allow you to withstand any storm or trial that life can throw at you. Imagine your life complete, then know that even in that moment your roots are still growing deeper into God’s love. Imagine your life in the place where you aren’t concerned with God’s love. Imagine all your energy spent on learning more love and experiencing more of it? God wants that life for you. It’s my prayer for you as well!

Matt Redman “The Cross Has Said It All”
The cross has said it all,
The cross has said it all.
I can’t deny what You have shown,
The cross speaks of a God of love;
There displayed for all to see,
Jesus Christ, our only hope,
A message of the Father’s heart:
“Come, my children, come on home.”–
As…

High as the heav’ns are above the earth,
So high is the measure of Your great love;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far have You taken our sins from us

The cross has said it all,
The cross has said it all.
I never recognized Your touch
Until I met You at the cross.
We are fallen, dust to dust;
How could You do this for us?
Son of God she’d precious blood;
Who can comprehend this love?

How high, how wide, how deep
How high, how wide, how deep,
How high!

IAM Victorious

PSA 18:29 NLT In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall.

Only in God’s strength, I am victorous.
Only through the power of God, can I crush ANY army
With My God, I can scale any wall.

What walls? What armies can stand against us now?

None!

There are so many ways the world thinks is the way to overcome.

But the only way is through the counter cultural way of Jesus.
Truly loving people more than yourself.

PSA 18:33 NLT He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights.
Imagine being surefooted like a deer.  Like a rugged animal that can climb any mountain, and go to the top of heights and peaks.

Only Jesus will allow us to do that.

And not just to sustain you to barely survive.  But to crush ANY ARMY! No Wall is too high! No mountain too rocky or tough to get to the heights.
IAM Victorious because of Jesus

IAM Strong in his Love
IAM a deer on a high mountaintop
IAM more than a survivor
IAM a conquerer!
