Ephesians 3:16-19 (KJV) That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
After Gbemi accepted the Lord Jesus, she submitted to discipleship and was connected to Mrs. Anderson by the church’s evangelism department. As Mrs. Anderson started to disciple Gbemi and teach her the way of the Lord, she observed that there were so many things Gbemi did not understand, and it appeared as if she could not understand them. Gbemi could not understand why she was to love her enemies, she could not understand God’s love for her even though she believed it.
Because Mrs. Anderson had experience in discipling people, she knew that what Gbemi needed the most was prayers. She would spend quality time each day praying for Gbemi, and her major prayer was that the Lord would strengthen her with might in the inner man. Mrs. Anderson understood that strength in the inner man would give Gbemi the ability and capacity for greater faith so that she would be able to be filled with the presence of God in the measure that can transform her and help her understand the kingdom of God.
We all have measures of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The day you accepted the Lord Jesus, you received a measure. The day you got baptized in the Holy Ghost, you received a higher measure. The more the words of Christ dwell in you richly, the more your measure increases (see Colossians 3:16, Ephesians 5:18-20).
As the Lord strengthens you by His Spirit with might in your inner man, this increases your capacity for faith, and thus your capacity to be filled with the fullness of God. It takes spiritual strength to host higher dimensions of the presence, glory, and power of God. Notice that in today’s Bible verses, the result of might in the inner man is that Christ dwells in our hearts richly, and the product of this is the ability to comprehend the dimensions of the love of Christ. One of the easily discernible signs that your spiritual strength is increasing is that your level of spiritual understanding would also be increasing. The commandments of the Lord would now be easy for you to obey and no more seem grievous (see 1 John 5:3).
Go into today praying with today’s Bible verses. Ask the Lord to strengthen you with might in the inner man by His Spirit so that your capacity to manifest the realities and power of the divine life would be upgraded. Use this time to pray for those who you disciple too.
Confession: I am strengthened by the Holy Spirit with might in my inner man. My capacity to express the glory of God is increasing. Hallelujah!
