“Therefore I ask that you do not lose heart at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. 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.”
Notice the Apostle Paul’s construction in the verse above. He used the words “strengthened” and “might.” Might is from the Greek “dunamei,” meaning “miracle-working ability”; while strengthened is “krataiothenai” meaning “invigorated.” So Paul’s prayer above is for you to have a “power transfusion” whereby you’re invigorated by the Holy Spirit!
Having been filled with such power, weakness or failure should no longer be a part of your life. There are Christians today who are weak spiritually; they’re constantly afraid and are unable to make important decisions for their lives. There are others who are broken, dejected and sickly because they’ve not taken a hold of divine health from within. The opening scripture shows that God wants you to be tough from within by having your spirit transfused with His miracle-working ability. That means you have to consciously pray the words in the opening verse for yourself.
Be Invigorated With Holy-Ghost Power!
Your outward appearance doesn’t matter. Someone may look at you and think you’re weak or frail, but you affirm, “I know who I am; I am strong, because I’ve been transfused with the miracle-working ability of the Spirit.” Never let fear express itself through you. Declare right now, “I’m invigorated with miracle-working power by the Holy Ghost, and His power is manifested through me today and always. Hallelujah!
Colossians 1:9-11 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and long suffering with joy;
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
