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. – (Ephesians 3:16-17, NLT)

I ask the Father with His great glory to give you the power to be strong in your spirits. He will give you strength through His Spirit. I pray that Christ will live in your hearts because of your faith. I pray that your life will be strong in love and be built on love. – (Ephesians 3:16-17, ERV)

 

Though physical training is beneficial to our bodies, and external strength can serve us well; far greater still is when we gain strength within from the Holy Spirit whom resides in the hearts of all who trust in Him. A life lived strong is one that is built on the love of Christ, and then lived out accordingly. May we invest our hearts and lives in the Lord so that would be a people deep-rooted in the love of God, and able to extend love through the strength He has grown within us.

 

When we seek the Lord,Living a Legacy Life

He does hear our prayer;

Granting our hearts strength,

As we choose draw near.

He’ll enter our hearts,

Where He shall remain;

Planting our roots deep,

Making our path plain.

Though the Lord has all,

In love, chooses you;

Makes your heart His home,

And grants strength anew.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You empower us internally with Your strength, so that we may trust in You and love others as You love us. Thank You that You make our hearts Your home when we invite You to enter in. Forgive us for attempting to rely on any strength other than that which comes from You. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would seek You in all things, allowing You to lead and guide us every step we take. Show us how to allow You to grow our roots deeper in You, so that we may be strong and steady in the truth. Help us to love others as You so faithfully love each of us. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we allow You to be our Source of strength, and the One on whom we depend. Amen.
