Find Your Strength In God
August 06, 2023
"That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;" Ephesians 3:16
As we go through life’s ups and downs, we feel like we are not going to be able to make it. The circumstances we find ourselves in have a way of trying to sap every ounce of strength out of us. If somebody mentions anything close to what we are going through we just want to scream. There are times when those who are close to us want to try to help us by being the listening ear that we need, but it is even hard to articulate all the things we are going through. There are situations in life we just have to go through, and no one will understand but God. The Scripture reminds us, that He would grant us, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. I encourage you today to be strengthened in The Lord. It may seem you are the only one going through and you cannot tell anybody, but you are not going through anything by yourself, The Lord is always with you, and He will never leave you alone. God will give you according to His riches in glory to be strengthened in heart, soul, and mind. God will give you strength for the journey. God will strengthen you with His might, by His Spirit so you will be able to stand through the storms and the rain. God will not just strengthen you on the outside, but more importantly in the inner man, your spirit will be strengthened as you draw closer to God. When your spirit is strengthened, then you indeed will be strengthened for the journey ahead. I thank God for His strength in my life, and I know because He strengthens me every day, I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord, thank you for your Spirit that leads and guides me every day. Thank you for the strength you give me not just on the outside, but also on the inside. Thank you for never letting me walk alone. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
