The Unsearchable Love of God

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, 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.”

– Ephesians 3:17-19

God loves us more than we can fathom. And as hard as we try to stretch our imaginations to grasp His goodness, we will never be able to conceive of how vastly and perfectly He cares. His affection is tailored to meet us in every triumph, heartbreak, and failure, and He is more concerned about our situation right now than we are. He is wonderfully glorious, yet He knows the most intimate details of our lives. No wonder David said in Psalm 139:6 that this knowledge is “too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.” And if this was true in Old Testament times, how much truer is it now that we’ve received the precious gift of salvation through Jesus Christ? The love the Father lavished upon us when He gave us His only Son means we have access to an endless river of grace that flows to us without interruption or fear of punishment. Therefore, even on the days when we feel the most vulnerable, messy, or undeserving, we are still loved, cherished, and seen more fully than we can understand.

My friend, be encouraged by the truth that you could spend every hour of every day for the rest of your life trying to fathom the love of God, and that still wouldn’t be enough. Even if you can’t see or feel it right now, the Creator of the Universe is passionately pursuing you, and He is inviting you to drink from the bottomless well of His goodness. When you receive His love in the midst of your mess, He will meet you with exactly what you need to be victorious in the next moment.

Prayer


Jesus, thank you for loving me more than I can understand. Whenever I’m feeling down or discouraged, remind me of how crazy you are about me.

Reflection
