Ephesians 3:16 says that the glory of God will empower and reinforce our inner man with strength through the Holy Spirit indwelling our spirit and personality. When we start to feel the pressures from the world around us, and the demands of life on us, our inner strength begins to wane. An easy way to detect someone’s inner resolve progressively getting weaker is by the slight change in their personality. Instead of bubbling joy and confident peace, there’s a subtle agitation just under the surface, or a slight distance they keep towards others compared to normal. For some, the moment they recognize the deficiency of inner strength within themselves, they make the decision to spend more time in the glory of God, yielding to the Holy Spirit, allowing Him to fill, empower, and reinforce them with His power. For others, they decide to push those agitating feelings and anxious thoughts down, to ignore them and press on, pulling on whatever strength they have left. The problem is, once strength is depleted unless it’s reinforced, the effects become more severe affecting not just our personalities, but our physical health too. This is not God’s will for us. He wants to see us prosper and be in health, even as our souls prosper (3 John 1:2). He wants to be the One who personally does this for us from the rich treasury of His glory. Make time to drink deeply in the Presence of the Lord – let Him fill and refresh you as He reinforces you with His mighty strength today.
