God Strengthens My Inner Person
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.
God Will Strengthen You
No matter what you are facing today, God promises to strengthen and empower you through the Holy Spirit. In this verse, Paul directs this pray to the church in Ephesus, but the same promise applies to you today.
Paul was not talking about physical strength but inner strength. Real strength begins in your heart and works its way out into your life. The word “strength” here means the power to act, endure, or resist. So often, we don’t give up because we are physically tired. We give up because we lose heart. God gives you supernatural strength to face any and every challenge before you today.
What is the source of that strength? It comes from the Holy Spirit in you. When you need strength, encouragement, or power the Holy Spirit taps the unlimited riches of God to empower you. Just as Jesus never faced a problem where his glory, grace, and power were not more than enough, those same riches are working in you today. You will never deplete His power and grace. It is a never-ending source of strength.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? You have His power within you.
Are you worried about your job or future? He is strengthening your heart.
Have you lost hope? God is renewing your inner person so you can keep moving forward.
Do you feel like giving up? Christ in you is giving you new strength, hope, and faith.
The very power of Christ is flowing through you. His Holy Spirit will give you the strength and determination you never thought you had.
Look at that promise once again.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being. – Ephesians 3:16
