“The Power Within”
I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit…
Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us—to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:16, 20-21
This is a prayer of the Apostle Paul for the Gentile believers in Ephesus. But it is also for ALL generations. In this prayer Paul brings encouragement for our journey as believers. The one thing that he gives enlightenment on is the POWER we have abiding in our inner being.
We, who are TRUE believers, and are not of the Jewish persuasion are considered Gentiles. Paul’s ministry was largely to the Gentiles. It was the Apostle’s desire that we have ALL that God wants us to have, to include POWER from within our inner man. This POWER can ONLY come to a TRUE believer through God’s Holy Spirit which indwells us.
Many times we, feel weak in our inner man and we wonder if we can continue on being and doing all that God desires for us. We are weak, because we have not tapped into the POWER source, which is God’s Holy Spirit. Only He can provide the POWER we need to persevere in this sinful, wretched, miserable world. He provides the POWER for us to PRESS ON towards the goal that has been set before us. He provides the POWER we need to do whatever He asks us to do, regardless of what we might think or feel. The POWER within is waiting to be tapped.
That POWER comes from the one who is able to do ABOVE and BEYOND ALL that we ask or think according to the POWER that works in us. This is AWESOME, we have the POWER of ALMIGHTY God within us, yet we seem to be POWERLESS. We walk around whining and grumbling about tiny, insignificant things that don’t amount to much, and when something really BIG, and significant comes along we are devastated, because we are weak in our faith, we have NOT tapped into our POWER source, the Holy Spirit of the ALMIGHTY GOD, which is indwelling us. Are you a TRUE BELIEVER? If you are, are you tapping into the POWER source that is within you? I pray that you are using the POWER that God has provided.
If you have not given your HEART and Life to God, then you are NOT a TRUE believer, and you don’t possess that POWER from within. But you are depending on this wretched, old world to get you through and that puts your destiny into jeopardy. You can change all of that, and possess the POWER of ALMIGHTY GOD, NOW, by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and be STRENGTHENED by the POWER WITHIN from the Holy Spirit of God. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
