... more than a devotional

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, Ephesians 3:14‭, ‬16 NKJV

You see the words of apostle Paul in our theme verse tells us something very important. We can be strengthened with might, through the Holy Spirit that lives in us. He said, "for this reason, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." This talks about intentional and fervent prayers.

Our theme verse shows us that though a man may be weak an any area of his body, or any aspect of his life, the Holy Spirit in him, can supply strength to him, if he will pray or is being prayed for. The verse doesn't say, your inner man can be strengthened. No.

 It says you can be strengthened with might. The whole of you. All parts of your life can be strengthened by the Holy Spirit who lives in your inner being. Have you experienced weakness emotionally, the strength for love and a sound mind can be supplied. 

Have you been weak in speech, utterance can be supplied. Have you been weak in spiritual sight, Understanding can be supplied. Have you been weak in your body, health can be supplied. This is the benefit of prayer and intersession! That you can be filled with strength and drawn out of weakness by the Holy Spirit in you, and you will be. In Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Prayer: Glory be to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who fills me with strength through His Spirit that lives in me. I cannot remain weak, for I am supplied by the Lord, with strength and grace to walk in Him for each new day. In Jesus mighty name. Amen.
