Strength in the Spirit

The Bible declares in Ephesians 3:14-16: “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”.
Man is a spirit and he dwells in a body. That spirit or inner man is the real
you. As the body or outward man can be weak, so can the inner man
be weak if not properly nurtured spiritually. Your inner man must be
strengthened with might—miracle-working ability—at all times for
you to be able to deal effectively with the crisis of life.
Food is to the physical body, what the Word of God, prayer, and
meditations are to your inner man. Your inner man is strengthened as
you spend time studying and meditating on the Word, and praying in the
spirit; in other tongues. You also develop the right character and are
able to do the things of God more effectively.
Christians who vacillate, not being able to do the things they should do,
or strong enough to refuse those things they shouldn’t do,
demonstrate an inner weakness. When the inward man is energized,
he’ll make the body do what it’s supposed to do, and refrain the body
from doing what it shouldn’t do. You need that divine, inner fortitude
and strengthening in your spirit to forge ahead in life.
You may say, “I like to pray, but sometimes I just can’t get myself
together to do it”; or “I want to win souls, but somehow
I feel too shy and intimidated to speak.” Such things happen when your
spirit is not energized. When your inner man is strengthened, you
become fervent in the things of God all the time. You’ll love to pray
and praise God; studying the Word will become an exhilarating
experience for you! It won’t be hard for you to talk to somebody
about Jesus; because you’re energized for the Gospel.
God bless you.
