So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Each day is important. It is unique and special. It is important what you do each day. It is important what you think each day. It is important what you say each day.
Your life is length of days until the perfect eternal day.
Every day counts, every day matters for building My Kingdom on earth and for determining your reward. You are not saved by your works, you are saved by believing in the finished work of Jesus on your behalf and, in Him, all the benefits that go with that are yours. But what you do once you have all that you need for life and godliness matters. You are to give freely of the wonderful gift you have received.
As I sent Jesus, so He sends you. I sent Him to undo the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8. I sent Him, as He read to you from the scroll of the prophet Isaiah:
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD.” Luke 4:18-19.
Every day in the life of Jesus upon the earth was important. Every day someone got reached by My love through Jesus. People were ministered to, the blind received sight, the lame walked, lepers were cleansed, provisions were multiplied, sins were forgiven, and many more good and wonderful things. Even at twelve years old He was busy about kingdom business on earth, and, actually, just His presence on coming into the world as a tender infant was the sign and substance of all the law had promised and foretold, for a child is born to you, a Son is given you and on His shoulder dominion rests, and His name shall be called Wonderful, counselor, God Hero, Father forever, Prince of Peace. He was the seed of the woman that would crush the devil’s head and free those had been in slavery to sin and death their whole lives long.
Departing from there, Jesus went along by the Sea of Galilee, and having gone up on the mountain, He was sitting there. And large crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them. So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking, the crippled restored, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel. Mathew 15:29-31.
Jesus went about revealing My goodness, showing people who I am. The LORD your healer, the LORD who looks ahead and provides, the LORD your deliverer, the LORD your salvation, the LORD your righteousness, the LORD your Shepherd, the LORD your peace, the LORD your refuge and your fortress, the LORD your sanctifier, the LORD your victory (banner), and so many more magnificent Covenant promise Names all fulfilled and “yes” to you in Jesus.
You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. Acts 10:38.
Jesus went about giving My love, a love beyond anything that you can imagine or even know the vastness of this surpassing, all encompassing, unfathomable love. And I am love. And Jesus and I are one.
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5.
And Jesus made you one with Me in Him, and I have poured My love into your spirit by the gift of My Holy Spirit to you. I have encompassed you about and filled you within with My love, My very presence. And this love covers every detail, every moment of your life forever. And that is what length of days means.
The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever. Psalm 121:5-8.
I keep watch over you who are Mine. I protect you.
You got it! What? My love. This gift is the crown of all for all that I have given you is from love for I am love and I made you in My image and according to My likeness. It is My love that saved you, forgave you, blessed you, healed you, and sustains your life.
No one is able to plumb the depths of My love for you. The greatness of My love for each one of you is beyond all you can ask or imagine or comprehend. It is higher than the heavens and deeper than the sea.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust. Psalm 103:10-14.
I am always mindful of you, watching over you, hovering over you like an eagle over the nest of her young, or like a mother hen gathering her chicks under her wings till harm passes by. Every moment I am there ready to help you, protect you, and direct you. My love is beyond what can be comprehended.
My great love fascinated David and the same was true for My apostle Paul. He had been forgiven much and he loved much. His life focused on My love. And he wanted you to know Me as He knew Me, as love. He called himself the biggest sinner but he became My great apostle that counted all as rubbish compared to the surpassing joy of knowing Me, of knowing LOVE.
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom the whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19.
When you are caught up in My Love everything else fades in comparison. It becomes all that matters in your life, because when you are in love with My love you become unconquerable. Satan cannot harm you. No evil can come near your tent. Nothing can bring you done when you live in the secret place of love. And it is yours now and forever in Jesus Christ your Lord, My gift of love to you.
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39.
Without Me, and I am Love, you can do nothing. So without love you can do nothing, that bears fruit. You cannot have joy without true love surrounding you and being in you sustaining and protecting your life.
For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my embryo; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You. Psalm 139:13-18.
When you have put yourself in My hand, you are untouchable by the devil. And that is what Psalm 91 is about. When you dwell in My secret place under the shadow of My hand the evil one cannot harm you or come near you. He will try, but you are safe in My hand.
We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. 1 John 5:18.
No matter the danger or evil around you, it will not come near you. My faithfulness and My love are your shield and bulwark. And your part to stay there is not to fear the terrors, fiery darts, plagues, and pestilence caused by the devil and his demons as permitted by Adam and his descendants and not to entertain or follow his deceits and devises.
And how to you get to this wondrous way of life in My hand? You speak it out, same way you got born again, which is the greatest miracle you can participate in.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Say of the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!” For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. Psalm 91:1-4.
And My great gift of My love to you is Jesus and He puts you in His Hand when you hear His voice and follow Him, and in His hand, you are of My hand.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30.
The devil came and stole My Word from Adam and Eve and they lost their protection and lost their lives to him who comes only to steal, kill, and destroy, but the good news is that I sent My Word to heal you and deliver you from all your destructions, and to give you abundant life in His little flock. Are you willing to come to your good Shepherd to have the abundant life?
You know Me by seeing all I did for you in Jesus and that is eternal life, to know Me, the One true God, and the One I sent, Jesus Christ, your Lord, My Son, My Word, and your everything.
I love you; I have given you My Son, won’t I give you everything with Him besides? Of course I will. Just stay in My hand and you do that by heeding My voice and following Me. Willing obedience in true transparency before Me is your entrance into the beauties of an indestructible life. Length of days, good days not bad days, a future and a hope. Fall in love with Me and you will know life abundant. You got it! Yes, you’ve got My love now and forever. I will always keep you. You are the apple of My eye.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting eagerly for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. Jude 1:20-21.
