Day 2. Release Your Inner Power Adapted from Ephesians 3:14-21. For this reason I bow on my knees before You Father, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth derives its name, that You will grant to me according to the riches of Your glory, to be strengthened with power through Your Spirit in my inner self; so that Your Son Christ may dwell in my heart through faith, and being rooted and grounded in love, I may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth of Your love, which surpasses mere knowledge, that I may be filled up with all Your fullness. Now by You who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than I ask or imagine, according to the power that works within me, to You be the glory in the church and in Your Son Jesus Christ to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
Today's word is "released." Yesterday we explored the word, "known." One of the participants taking this Lenten journey with us, wrote to me to say, "I am no longer waiting to be perfect before I can pray." We can be assured that God knows each of us completely, and we can be "released" from trying to be "good enough" to seek a relationship with God.
