May You Be Strengthened With All Power
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, (Colossians 1:11 ESV)
It is only God that can strengthen us with all power as we seek His face and wait upon Him. It is not by power or might or by faith in our faith but faith in the active power of God that was made possible and available to us through the sacrifice and blood of Jesus. The more we depend on God’s power, the more self dies. The power of the Holy Spirit must not be scorned or ignored.
The same power that strengthens us for all endurance and patience with joy is the same power that will make us complete in the will of God. That is also the same power that heals and delivers us from every evil. May we never forsake or look down on this power. The more we magnify and exalt that power the more self shrinks and faith grows.
May God strengthen us with all power according to His glorious might.
