Ephesians 3:14-19- Prayer for Fullness
Grounded is our foundation of the building. The deeper the foundation the taller the building.
. . . in this prayer, the emphasis is on enablement. It is not so much a matter of knowing as being—laying our hands on what God has for us and by faith making it a vital part of our lives. Paul is saying, “I want you to get your hands on your wealth, realize how vast it is, and start to use it.”
These four requests are more like four parts to a telescope. One request leads into the next one, and so on. He prays that the inner man might have spiritual strength, which will, in turn, lead to a deeper experience with Christ. This deeper experience will enable them to “apprehend” (get hold of) God’s great love, which will result in their being “filled unto all the fullness of God.” So, then, Paul is praying for strength, depth, apprehension, and fullness.

My response to the glorious plan by which we are build together into one church (whether Jew or Gentile) is to get down on my knees before the wonderful Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth gets His name because He created them. In that prayerful posture, I ask the He would give you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power inside of you, (power made possible by the Holy Spirit indwelling your innermost being and personality) leading to Christ settling down and feeling at home in your hearts through your trust in Him, and that you having deep roots (like a plant) and a deep foundation (like a tall building) may be able to firmly grasp with all God's devoted people the full dimensions of the fullness of God and to know the love of Christ which is beyond human understanding, that you may be filled up to overflowing with the full measure of God.
Pray this for ________ who seems to have a head knowledge and is so faithful but something in the heart is missing. Filled that person up to the full measure of Yourself! Pray this for my live in loved ones.
