Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

The Fullness of God

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19)

The last four words of this prayer remind me of this passage:
For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. (Colossians 2:9-10)
When we ask Jesus to come into our lives we are asking Him to fill us with the fullness of God. We need to ask for His filling each day because.. as the cliche goes.. we leak.

We ask You Holy Father to fill us afresh with your Holy Spirit.. we long to live lives filled with Your goodness, lover and compassion. Come Lord Jesus.. we surrender to You.

Amen
