Eph. 3.19 To Know ... to be Filled...
"To know" ... the words echo within - like the rumble of the non-stop thunder that sounds across the pampas when the rain comes.
Paul's prayer finds an echo within and becomes my prayer.
It is somehow beyond my capacity to comprehend and yet it makes itself known.
"To know .... to know .... to know" - resounding on and on, beyond the mind's understanding - and yet so clear.
It is the cry of a process in the depths.
It is a cry seeking with insistance to find revelation to the spirit - the realm where it is really needed.
We humans are inclined to condition our lives in such a way that all knowledge must come through the mind.
Our mind becomes the gatekeeper of our souls, and things greater than the mind can comprehend are lost to us.
The Spirit of God is held back by our clay-shuttered doors, and we are left to wither.
Let us leave behind our petty concepts and seek to know in our spirits, in the depths where Life dwells.
"To know...to be Filled" with that which is not of man but fresh from the hand of God.
