Power In The Inner Being
God’s Power 12
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being. Ephesians 3:16
Power is obtained through asking, petition or supplication to God. Paul prayed and asked that the recipients of his letter be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit.
There are different forms of prayer – praise, worship, thanksgiving, confession, supplication, intercession and petitions. However, asking when it is for yourself is petition and supplication. When asking is for someone else it is intercession.
Here Paul is interceding. It is a form of asking. So we can ask for ourselves. If we just limit prayer to confession or praise and never ask, we are not praying like Jesus and Paul.
We must pray the all prayer that Paul mentioned in Ephesians 6.
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. Ephesians 6:18
May we always remember to pray with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit. May we pray with humility for God to strengthen us with power through His Spirit in the inner man. The more that power or glory increases inside you, the more you will be cleansed and filled with the presence of Christ.
You already have His Holy Spirit living in you. All you need now, is for the temple of your heart to be filled with God’s glory or power. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
