{ Day 112 }

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

Being rooted and grounded in the strong, secure love of God motivates us to greater consistency, spiritual passion, and maturity. We long for a fuller, more intimate knowledge of God and for heart-to-heart fellowship with Him. As you and I pursue intimacy with Jesus, it will become apparent that we are God's royal children. We will manifest our family's likeness by conforming to Christ. We will seek to further our family's welfare by loving our brethren. We will maintain our family's honor by avoiding what our Father hates, pursuing what He loves, and seeking His glory.


There is nothing I want more, O God, than to be rooted and grounded in Your everlasting love. I want to manifest Your likeness. Let me live in purity and holiness as I show Your love to others.

We desire to become wise children who bring joy
to our Father.
