Winning Wisdom: Understand His Love


Topic: Understand His Love — Thursday, 10th August 2017

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. Ephesians 3:18

God really wants us to understand Him. It is not just enough to know someone but you must understand them for you to exploit all the benefits of your relationship with them. From human angle, no one can fully grasp God, and understand how much love He has for us. People say God cannot be fully understood or known. But I feel if scriptures say we can, as recorded in Ephesians 3:18, then God can be fully known and understood. It is just that we are not making enough effort to get to that level.

It is important for us to understand the love of God in all its dimensions. Jude 1:21 (TLB) says: "stay always within the boundaries where God’s love can reach and bless you." We need to stay in the boundaries where God's love can reach and bless us, and we can't do that if we don't understand each of its dimensions. We all have experienced the blessings of the love at some levels and dimensions, but there is more to what you've experienced. And the Lord expects us to be voracious enough to delve into more understanding of this love, so we can experience the blessings of His love.

So Paul says, "and may you have the power to understand..." (Ephesians 3:18). Which means there is a power to understand God's love. And if you study Ephesians 3 from verse 14, you will know that this power that enables us to understand the dimensions of the love of God, is the Holy Spirit. He is called the Spirit of love, and He is the one Who infuses the love of God in our hearts (Romans 5:5). He makes us understand everything about God, including His love (Ephesians 1:17-20, 1 Corinthians 2:9-16). This is why we need to keep a constant interface with the Holy Spirit. He wants to make you understand all the dimensions of God's love. Give Him free course.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, I desire to understand Your love and stay in the boundaries where Your love can bless me. Help me, by Your Spirit, to understand Your love in all its dimensions and manifestations, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
