“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” Ephesians 3:16-17 NLT
Whose strength are you living in today? Often we go about life under our own power and strength, never stopping to realize that we have access to the unlimited resources of God.
How do we do this? We allow the Spirit of God to do it. “Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.” Galatians 5:25 NLT
We trust in the fact as a follower of Christ that He has made His home in or hearts. “Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.” John 14:23 NLT
The deeper our roots grow in our relationship and understanding of God's love the stronger we become. So, “Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:7 NLT
Christ at home in your heart + your trust in him + being rooted in the love of God + God's unlimited resources = empowered with inner strength
