For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of 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 by his Spirit in the inner man (Ephesians 3:14-16).
This prayer of the Spirit through the Apostle Paul for the Ephesian church shows us the will of the Father for all of His children. In this special month of Strengthening, He wants us to be strengthened with might in the inner man. “Might” is from the Greek word “dunamis”, the same word translated “power” in Acts 1:8 where the Lord Jesus said to His disciples, “Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.”
However, seeing the word “might” and not “power” in the Scripture above, it’s important for us to understand what “might” is and how it functions in us. Firstly, “might” is an overpowering force, which overcomes strength. A metal rod, for example, has strength, though it’s not doing anything. The force with which a strong man bends that metal rod is what is called “might.”
In the context of his prayer in the opening Scripture, “might” (dunamis) connotes “miracle-working power.” So Paul’s prayer is that we be invigorated with miracle-working power in our spirits. That miracle-working power functioning in you makes you overcome any adverse situation; it makes everything possible unto you. Hallelujah!
This is what God wants working in you this month, and it happens because of the presence of the Holy Spirit. This is why the Scriptures charge us to “…be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might” (Ephesians 6:10). You must become conscious of the presence of the Holy Spirit and allow Him infuse you with miracle-working ability from inside.
I encourage you today to pray the prayer in Ephesians 3:16 for yourself everyday, and it wouldn’t be long before you literally feel that miracle-working ability surging through your being strengthening every area of your life! No matter the strength of the opposition that comes against you this month of August, the overpowering force of might working in you will infuse supernatural strength into everything that is connected to you and always put you over. Glory to God!
