As a child of God, you’re never without strength, because there’s a strengthener in you—the Holy
Spirit. He ministers to you as your Strengthener. He strengthens you so that while He’s taking His own steps to ensure that everything works out right for you, you’re also participating actively in the process, because He has to function through you.
If you have the Holy Spirit in your life, weakness is no longer an option. Paul said in our opening verse, “…when I am weak, then am I strong.” In other words, when he was bruised and battered, broken down by external forces, he was made even stronger by the power of the Holy Spirit; he was empowered with might from within. No wonder the Bible declares that we have this treasure in earthen vessels (2 Corinthians 4:7).
Have you ever felt so weak and without strength that it seemed everything was going dark? Some people sometimes pass out because they have high blood pressure. They blackout all of a sudden! Some others have a demonic experience, which causes them to pass out; suddenly their eyes shut, and they can’t tell what followed afterwards. Understand this: such things aren’t supposed to happen to you; and if they’ve been happening to you, you can stop them by applying the power of the Holy Spirit.
In Luke 22:43, we read about an Angel from heaven strengthening Jesus in ministering to Him. The Holy Spirit does the same for us today; He strengthens us. Read Apostle Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 3:16: “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.” The Spirit strengthens you with might in your inner man. Recognize and take advantage of His strength from within. Be conscious of, and walk in, His ability that’s in your spirit.
