Paul prayed “that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being” (Eph. 3:16). Rise up into all the strength and power God has for you. Your Father intends for you to be strong and enlarged in Him. Exchange slumber and passivity for the glory of being awakened in Him.
The Holy Spirit is present in you, igniting revelation of who you really are. Your spirit is wonderfully designed to do what your soul and body can’t do. Be blessed with being active and strong, so that you will be complete spirit, soul, and body (1 Thess. 5:23).
Be blessed to hear your Shepherd when He speaks to you. Be blessed as your spirit leads your soul, directing and instructing it in the ways and will of God’s intentions. He knows the “much more” He has for you.
God is up to something significant and eternal in strengthening and enlarging you. Faithfully exercise your God-given identity and authority as a covenant child of God Most High. Be blessed to embrace the abundant life Jesus died to give you.
