For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man – Ephesians 3:14-16
The Greek word translated “might” is “Dunamis,” which refers to inherent power that reproduces itself. The use of the word “might” instead of “power” however means that apart from divine ability, it also connotes excellence on the inside. God wants you to be strengthened with might in your inner man; He wants you to be energized with ability in your human spirit! That’s where you need the strength of God, for that’s where your character is built.
The inward man needs to be strengthened with ability by the Holy Ghost so he can do the things he should do and refuse to do the things he shouldn’t do. When the inner man is weak, he is unable to control the outward man. This is why sometimes, some Christians want to pray but find it difficult to do so. For some others, studying the Bible becomes a drag to them. But how do you strengthen your inner man? It’s through the Word of God and prayer.
When you spend time studying and meditating on the Word, added to speaking in tongues regularly, your spirit will be invigorated with might—miracle-working ability. When that power is stirred in your inner man, it becomes easy for you to overcome any adverse situation. The whole world becomes small to you, and you see that really, nothing is impossible to you. This is the reason God wants you to be strengthened with might in your inner man.
There’re so many things you can’t do if your inner man is weak. For one, you won’t be able to preach the gospel effectively. You’d always hesitate and debate within yourself whether or not to preach to someone. But when you’re strengthened with divine enablement in your inner man, it won’t be hard for the Holy Ghost to get you to talk to somebody about Jesus. Plus that, you’ll love to praise God, and relish studying His Word. Strengthening your inner man is a building of strong spiritual character.

Dear Father, I thank you for granting me to be strengthened with miracle working ability in my inner man, by your Spirit! I declare that Christ is dwelling in my heart by faith, and I’m strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
