Ephesians 3:16 (KJV) That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man


Larry heard his wife crying in the bathroom and felt really bad because of the sharp words he had spoken to her. He regretted those words and wished he could unsay them. This was not the first time that week that Larry was acting and speaking out of control.

As he investigated why his temper had become so short and his words no more seasoned with salt, he observed that it was because his spirit was now weak. He needed strength in his inner man.

Everyone who has new birth in Christ has an inner man that has been recreated in the image of God (Colossians 3:10). This inner man wars against the flesh and the flesh against it. The stronger the inner man, the less the person would walk in the flesh, but if the inner man is weak, it would be easy for the flesh to dominate the person.

It is by the Spirit of God that we are strengthened with power in the inner man. Apostle Paul understood that when believers don't have strength in their inner-man, they would not be able to walk properly as sons of God, this was why he prayed for the brethren that God would grant unto them this strength(see Ephesians 3:15-17).

The stronger you are in the inner man the more you can manifest the divine nature and walk in the power of God. The word of God is spirit and life. This is a source of strength for the inner man. Through the diet word, we grow into the fullness of our stature, which is a powerful one. Prayer is another way we receive strength because when we pray, our spirits fellowship with God, and His strength is transmitted to us in the process.

Go into today remembering that strength in your inner man is the secret to living victoriously in Christ. Many are attacked and faint because their strength is little. Determine to give yourself to the ministry of the Word and prayer so that you will be strengthened.

Prayer: Father, please strengthen me with power by your Spirit in my inner man.
