Filled

I pray that out of the glorious richness 
of His resources He will enable you 
to know the strength of 
the spirit’s inner re-inforcement—
that Christ may actually live 
in your hearts by your faith...
May you be filled though all your being 
with God himself!
Eph 3:18-19
Though Paul was writing to the church at Ephesus,
the Holy Spirit was writing to the universal Ephesian--
I pray these words over myself today.
Lord, enable me to know how strong 
the inner re-inforcements 
of the spirit are in my life;
I want Christ to actually live this day
in my heart through a faith that is 
alive and ever increasing.
I want to be more aware of this holy presence
that I might not live for myself or become fearful 
when circumstances arise.
Oh, that I would know.
You have given me Your Son 
that He might live His life through mine.
I want to be completely filled!
I don't want to engage life today
without the knowledge 
that You live through me.
I am Your dwelling place.
You say to me, Remain in Me and 
I will remain in you.
I know that I know this.
But every day I want to know it more.
If I remain in You, 
my life will bear much fruit.
I am desperate for more of You
that I might be filled through 
all my being with Your life.
I am increasingly aware that 
my own life can never be enough.
