“May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit, Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality.” Ephesians 3:16 Amplified
Our verse today is what I call a power verse, one that gives us power to go through our everyday tasks and battles. His glory surely is a rich treasury which He strengthens and reinforces us with in our inner man with mighty power.
The inner man is your innermost being and personality, that’s where God dwells. That mighty power to help us is what we need to plug in to. As we seek His guidance and direction each day for each task, He is there ready to help us, but we must seek it.
There’s more, verse 17 states, “May Christ, through your faith, actually dwell, settle down, abide and make His permanent home in your hearts!” As a believer God is in your heart, but do you have Him in the center. Is He in the den, where you spend most of your time, or have you relegated Him to the shed out back. We need God at the center of our life so we can receive power.
Vverse 18 states, “That you may have the power and be strong to grasp….the experience of that love.” It goes on in verse 19, “That you may really come to know…the fullness of God.”
Verse 20 is the most amazing, “Now to Him who by the action of His power that is at work within us is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.” WOW!!!!!!
How can we not want Him in our innermost being, if we will let Him dwell there He will give us victory over all things.
