Devotional:Strengthened in the Inner Man

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,...
that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,”
Ephesians 3:14, 16 NASB

How often have you found yourself discouraged because of circumstances beyond your control?  There are many things that can cause us to lose hope. The nightly news, physical illness, relationships, death of loved ones, church problems, marriage problems, and so much more can cause much angst.  

But wait!  We don't have to allow these things to get us down.  God can and will strengthen our inner man by His power according to the riches of His gory.  We have riches untold waiting for us in heaven. We also have the Holy Spirit now to strengthen us as we keep our eyes on the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Are things getting you down?  Get into God's word and be encouraged and strengthened.  Ephesians is the perfect book to read for this. It's a treasure trove of encouragement.  Begin by thanking God for His provisions and your outlook will begin to change.
