Do you know you can’t get away from God’s love no matter what? No matter how hard we try to escape God and His love we can’t.
Listen to this, It’s a prayer by Paul found in Ephesians 3:17-19:
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.
I think everything we were made for is found in these verses. The thing is we so often want to measure how good we are, we get out our yardstick and try to measure our goodness.
Reality is, no matter how hard we try, we will never be able to explain or deserve such amazing grace and incredible love and the best part is we can’t escape it either. It’s just too wide, we can’t get around it. It’s too high, we can’t get over it. It’s so long we’ll never to able to outrun it and it’s so deep, we will never be able to exhaust it.
God is pursuing us, maybe it’s time to stop running away from love and start running toward it. Even when it’s too good to be true.
When Bob proposed to me a hundred years ago, I didn’t say, “Wait a minute Bob, are you sure you love me?” I didn’t tell him all the reasons he should think twice about this proposal, no I just simply threw my arms around him and we agreed it was a match made in heaven.
I wonder how it would feel to trust God enough to simply throw our arms around Him and to acknowledge that he loves us beyond all doubt.
