(God Wants You Strengthened)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.”
This prayer in Ephesians 3:14-16 is evidently God’s will for you; He wants you fortified with divine energy in your spirit. If this is so, you should respond by saying, “Thank you heavenly Father for strengthening me with might in my inner man by your Holy Spirit!”
Learn to make this declaration about yourself all the time, that you’re strengthened from within and invigorated with miracle-working ability. That means that your abilities are unlimited, and nothing is impossible for you to accomplish, because you’re sufficient in God’s sufficiency (2 Corinthians 3:5).
Be bold to say like Paul, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).You may ask, “Pastor Chris, what if I feel weak inside?” That’s the more reason you must continually say, “God has granted me (call your name), according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in my inner man.”
Having made this declaration, don’t wait for an outward sign; simply receive it and begin to function with the consciousness of one who has been strengthened. That’s how you take advantage of God’s provisions in the Gospel for your benefit.

Speak: I thank you heavenly Father for the power of your Spirit in my life! Even now, I’m strengthened with might by the Holy Ghost in my inner man! I can do all things through Christ who energises and infuses me with miracle working ability! I’m sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency! Hallelujah!
