I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. (Ephesians 3:16, NLT)
Christ has a limitless supply of resources. He can provide EVERYONE with inner strength and still have more to give.
Does this mean we can rely on inner strength? Yes, you can rely on Jesus to give you the strength you need…His strength!
When you feel like you cannot keep going even one more step, cry one more tear, hear one more lie, see one more tragedy-ask Jesus to give you the inner strength to keep going. His ability to pour out strength is boundless. It will never run out.
We are called not to give up. “And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.” (Romans 5:4 NLT)
If we take that next step no matter how small, we are enduring. You’ve heard it said a hundred times, God is more interested in our character than our comfort.
So ask! He will give abundantly and you can endure one more day, which in turn strengthens your character.
Once you realize the source of your strength is endless, you can begin to keep pressing forward giving you hope.
Prayer: I’m so thankful Lord that I am not bound by my own finite resources. I praise and love you for the strength and hope you provide as I journey to become more like You.
