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)
Never depend on your own power. Power and mercy belong to God. All power in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus. God is the only one that can strengthen you with power.
It is very natural for man to rely on himself, and try to save Himself without God. Eve decided to believe that God does not want good for them. She tried to save herself outside God and she fell. The same thing still happens over and over again.
Look at the case of Sarah and Abraham. God had already promised them a child, yet she convinced Abraham to have a child by Hagar. She depended on herself instead of God.
It is only God that can strengthen us with power in the inner man. With power comes ability. It is a function of the grace of God and man’s power is of no use all.
Is there any area of your life that you are struggling with? God is the one that knows all. He can help you with whatever it is that seems very difficult. He can help you to be a better husband, wife, mother, father, son, daughter, son, friend, employee, entrepreneur.
He knows what we need even before we ask Him. He is the one that gives the power to make wealth. He gives knowledge and skill. He gives talents.
And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts. Exodus 3:2-5
God is all powerful and glorious He can make you what He wants you to be today. Simply rest in Him and yield to Him in complete surrender.
May God strengthen you with all power, according to His glorious might.
