That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness – Colossians 1:10-11
In our theme scripture, we see another desire and will of God’s Spirit as He prays through the Apostle Paul for His saints. He wants us to be strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness. What does this mean?
The word “might” is the Greek “dunamis”; it means miracle-working ability; the ability to make supernatural things happen. It refers to an ability to do the impossible; a supernatural ability. This is the power that God wants you to operate in, and with; it’s His will for you. You can change anything. You can fix anything, because of His power working in you. This “might” with which you’re strengthened and energized for the supernatural and transcendent life isn’t according to man’s ability, but according to God’s own ability.
No wonder He says, “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God” (2 Corinthians 3:5). He’s your ability; He’s your strength! Therefore, no matter what happens, no matter what’s going on around you, you’re so strengthened of God, so invigorated with miracle-working ability that you’re not troubled; you’re unperturbed. Oh, what a glorious and triumphant life we have in Christ! It’s a life without impossibilities or limitations!
It makes no difference the troubles, storms or adversities that may come against you; you won’t fret or be anxious when you’re invigorated with miracle-working ability. You won’t be bothered about the devil or what he can do, because he’s not a factor. You’re relaxed and joyful always, irrespective and independent of circumstances. Hallelujah!

Precious Father, I thank you for the power of the Holy Spirit that’s at work in me. I’m invigorated with miracle-working ability in my spirit, by the Holy Spirit who lives in me. I’m strengthened for greater works, and positioned for the supernatural life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
