God Strengthens Your Inner Person
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.
Are you facing some stress-filled days? Today’s promise is for you.
No matter what you face today, God promises to strengthen and empower you through the Holy Spirit. In this verse, Paul directs this prayer to the church in Ephesus, but the same promise applies to you and me today.
Your Inner Person
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 give up because we lose heart more than we are physically tired. 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 available to you today. You will never deplete His power and grace. You have access to 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 possible.
Look at that promise one more time.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being. – Ephesians 3:16
Make these confessions.
- God is strengthening my inner being today.
- God’s power and grace are my sources of strength.
- The Holy Spirit empowers me today.
- I am strong because Christ gives me His strength.
- I will not give up or give in because I have the power of Christ in me.
In Jesus’ Name.
When your heart is empowered and strengthened, you can do anything. You can go longer than you can imagine, further than you thought possible, and stay with it until you finish. Jesus is strengthening you today.

Thank you Pastor Billy Taylor, this is a message I needed specifically for today.
Your daily promise readings are always so encouraging to my wife and I. We continue to listen to them in the morning on our way to work, and even in these couple of days we have off…we always welcome God’s inspiration.
May God continue to bless you and your ministry, and your family and health.
