TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 3:14-16
“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from 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 through His Spirit in the inner man”
What an inspiring prayer of the Spirit by 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.
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. He didn’t only give us His Word to quote, memorise 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 energised for victory and the supernatural life, because the Holy Ghost lives in me!”
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.

Dear Father, I thank you for granting me to be strengthened with miracle-working ability in my inner man, by your Spirit! Christ dwells in my heart by faith, and I’m strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, positioned for victory, and energised for the supernatural life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
