Strength In Our Inner Being

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

TODAY’S THOUGHT
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.

TODAY’S PRAYER
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

TODAY’S VERSE
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
God is so much more than we believe He is. We barely begin to know anything about His infinite power, wisdom and love. It’s like looking at a pebble and saying we comprehend what Mt. Everest must look like. God’s provisions are so vast that if we were to exhaust all the resources of a multi-billionaire, we would barely be starting with God. So why is it we don’t dream big dreams for God? He has promised that He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine and yet we live a life without the miraculous. The secret is in knowing Him. And even that is a gift. A gift we need to pray for. We need to ask God to help us comprehend who He is and to allow us to dream for Him. He created us to be His ambassador of dreams. He lives through our visions, our hopes and aspirations. He longs for us to challenge Him, to create with Him and to partner in being change agents in this world. Paul put it this way, “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Today, let us ask God to strengthen us with His power and to fill us with His fullness so we will ask Him for the immeasurable, and trust Him to do more that we can ever imagine.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, what immeasurable mighty dreams do You have for my life? What is it that You want me to trust You for? Strengthen me, Lord, with Your power. Fill me with Your fullness. Help me believe You for great things.
AMEN

Doing God’s Will

TODAY’S VERSE
“Do the will of God with all your heart.”
Ephesians 6:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
You can do something half-heartedly, or you can really give yourself to it. You can do it out of sheer obedience or because of a loving heart. Paul was asking the church members to do God’s will, but not just do it, do it with all their heart. In his book, “Knowing God’s Will” David Benner writes, “Only love was capable of empowering Jesus to choose God’s will over his own when faced with the agony of death. – Spiritual disciplines that emerge simply as acts of the will are likely to be self-serving and legalistic. What God desires is external actions that spring from inner longings for relationship and intimacy, for this is His desire for us. This was what the Father found in the heart of Jesus. And it is the motive for spiritual willing that we can find in our life in Jesus as we follow Him and live in His Spirit.” Today, ask God to birth in you a fresh desire to follow Him, a deep love and intimacy with Him that directs the way you live. Today, “do the will of God with all your heart.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me know You more and more so that I develop a deeper love for You. Then help all my actions come from the love that you birth in my heart.
AMEN
