Happy Wednesday Saints.
Ephesians 3:16 “I PRAY THAT FROM HIS GLORIOUS UNLIMITED RESOURCES, HE WILL EMPOWER YOU WITH INNER STRENGTH THROUGH HIS SPIRIT.”
Yesterday, we looked at positive changes that start with the inner self. We noted how the changes that start from within the heart are more significant than external religious methods.
Too often, we look outside of ourselves to get what we need to change. We try to use external religious behaviours to alleviate any need to deal with unhealthy inner conditions.
We, in a sense, use religious behaviours to distract us from our inner chaos. We try to avoid dealing with our inner self by keeping ourselves occupied with superficial external strategies.
As we mentioned yesterday, God desires “TRUTH IN THE INWARD PARTS.” When we get our hearts right, He makes us “KNOW WISDOM.”
Today’s passage reveals that God can also “EMPOWER YOU WITH INNER STRENGTH THROUGH HIS SPIRIT.”
So, we’ve got INNER wisdom and INNER strength from God, and both are powerful means of change.
Proverbs 20:27 says that “THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS THE LAMP OF THE LORD THAT SHEDS LIGHT ON ONE’S INMOST BEING.”
Almost everything that the Lord is going to accomplish in your life begins inside you – in your INMOST BEING. So instead of looking outwardly for wisdom, guidance, and strength, start by looking inside your heart. Rather than trying to change your external human behaviours, let the Lord change your inner human nature. And from there, everything else in your life will follow.
Have a wonderful day. God bless and lots’a love,
