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
What an inspiring prayer of the Spirit rendered through Paul, the Apostle, for the Church! He prays that God would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might in your inner man. The word translated “Might” means miracle-working ability; God wants every one of us to be invigorated with miracle-working ability; which means none of us is ordinary or should live an ordinary life. This is God’s will for every one of us; He wants you strengthened from within, for the supernatural life.
There’s no need griping over your inabilities or lack of strength; there’s no need to be afraid or intimidated by the oppositions you face! There’s no need to faint or lose heart over anything! The will of God has already been expressed in the Spirit’s prayer for you in our opening verse! Live in that scripture. Irrespective of how you look outwardly, maybe feeble, or weak, always declare, “I’m strengthened from within!” Confess faith and strength all the time.
That’s the way to respond to the Word of God. God didn’t only give us His Word to quote, memorize or recite; He gave us His Word to use, and to live by, and we have to respond to it accordingly. You have to agree with the Word, and say repeatedly, “I’m invigorated from within by the Holy Ghost; I’m not weak! I’m energized for victory and the supernatural life, because the Holy Ghost lives in me!” Amos 3:3 says, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” So, when God speaks, you say the same thing in agreement with Him, and it produces results.
Whatever God says to you is for your benefit, and requires the right response. So, respond in harmony with His Word. Talk strength always, and faith will rise up within you and you’ll discomfit lurking adversities.
