Paul’s Ministry to the Gentiles 3 1For this reason, I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles— 2you have heard, haven’t you, about the administration of God’s grace that He gave to me for you? 3The mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have briefly written above. 4By reading this you are able to understand my insight about the mystery of the Messiah. 5This was not made known to people[Q] in other generations as it is now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit: 6The Gentiles are co-heirs, members of the same body, and partners of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 7I was made a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace that was given to me by the working of His power. 8This grace was given to me—the least of all the saints—to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable riches of the Messiah, 9and to shed light for all about the administration of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things. 10This is so God’s multi-faceted wisdom may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens. 11This is according to His eternal purpose accomplished in the Messiah, Jesus our Lord. 12In Him we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him.[R] 13So then I ask you not to be discouraged over my afflictions on your behalf, for they are your glory.   Prayer for Spiritual Power   14For this reason I kneel before the Father[S] 15from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named. 16I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit, 17and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, 18may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, 19and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us— 21to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

When I asked Yeshua, if there exist in the Bible a definition of Eternal Life, He showed me this scripture. It even has a ":" after "this is eternal life:" as I asked in an example phrase in my prayer. On that day I was  very exited not only for the scripture but for the interaction I was privileged to have with my Savior. Such a personal conversation and request He helped me with. As a young believer and new born member (grafted in) of the family of Yeshua, I relished interaction with a God I couldn't touch or see or even audibly hear speaking to me.

He is into capacity building.  The interior life does not just happen.  Dynamite, water, pick-axes, teaspoons--and mere Word--all can excavate this Dept of the Interior; build this Bureau of Reclamation.  But God chooses a gentler means, less measurable, more like a wind, a whisper in the willows, working within us.

I only can take in when I have empty space made available to Him--  then the weight of His glory can fill my gaps.   Further, I take in only what He elicits in the first place:  He instills inborn curiosity about Him.  Then He pulls that from me, as I do with others, with an empathic stance of appreciative inquiry.

Strength is needed to keep on opening this door, this moving threshold of faith in Jesus' ability and willingness to live in me, guiding me one moment to the next into deeper wholeness and holiness.  Part of me wants to pile furniture up against the inside of the door after i bolt and chain it shut.  The strength from Jesus is needed to deal with this part of me.
