Strength In Our Inner Being

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.”
Ephesians 3:16

We are complicated creatures. We think and communicate on many different levels. Our thinking is a combination of many drives, emotions, assumptions, beliefs, instincts and memories, creating a labyrinth of inner voices. We can be talking to someone and at the same time have an inner dialog going on guiding our conversation. We are so much more than what comes out of our mouth. This is our inner being. Paul knew about this. He was a man who experienced the battles that war for who we are on the inside. This is why he prayed that God would strengthen us. He knew if you and I were to have any real spiritual life with God, we would need God’s strength in the person of the Spirit to reside in us and to help us. Paul prayed that God would strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our inner being. Imagine, the God who created the divine order of the universe wants to do the same in our inner being. He wants to produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in our inner being so what goes on the inside of our mind is congruent to what goes on in our life. Today, make God the Lord of your inner being. Give Him all the inner turmoil, confusion, struggles, strife, fears and pain and ask Him to take control and strengthen you with His power through His Holy Spirit.

Lord, You know my inner being. You understand me better than I do. I need Your strength in my inner being to help me live the way You want me to. I pray that today, through Your power, You would produce your spiritual fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control in my inner being. In Jesus’ name.  AMEN

One thought on “Strength In Our Inner Being”

  1. Thanking you for powerful words of faith. I’m so much releaved and revived! Before I read today’s thought I was so down because people have jealous towards me and they don’t like because of my unique lifestyle. They once stole everything I had in my room. God bless you abundantly.
