Eph. 3:16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources, he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit.

There are ample resources in heaven to help you get the strength in spirit you need to handle whatever you face in life. God is able to help you become the spiritual giant that you are not now. He is able to help you stand steadfast and true no matter what Satan may throw at you. He is able to redirect your thoughts to Him and get your mind off of the things of earth that hinder you. He is able to change the desires of your heart so that you will long for the things of God and not the things of the earth. He is able to help you live in the present with an eye for your future instead of your past. The Lord can strength you where you are weak in faith. He is able to make you strong so that you can be an effective witness for Him in the world.

The issue is not God’s ability; the question is our willingness to let Him. The Lord will not work in us to make us strong against our will. He will not do anything for us if we don’t give Him permission to do so. Our natural tendency is to resist the work that God needs to do in us to make us strong.

Lord, we confess that we often settle for so much less than what we could have from you. We often stop short of taking advantage of Your resources. We tend to be content with just enough to get by. Please forgive us for our shortsightedness. Lord, we need to be more bold in our living and witness for you. We need to be more bold in our resistance to
Satan and his allurements to sin. Lord, we are weak and need more strength. We need to depend more on You and be willing to let the Holy Spirit have full access to our hearts. Lord, help us to be all that we need to be in order for us to live in victory over our sins. Lord, strengthen us for our journey of faith today and all the days of our lives. In Jesus' name. Amen.
