Strengthened with Power
Paul prays for us to have supernatural power through Christ’s Spirit in us: That we will be strengthened in our inner being, and be able to know the depth of Jesus’ transforming love for us!
‘Strengthen’ = to make strong, increase in strength.
‘inner being’ = the new you in Jesus, the new nature that God births in you when Jesus’ Spirit indwells you!
I John 4:13
1. Supernatural Power to be strengthened for Jesus to dwell more fully in us. (verses 16-17)
Dwell = Be completely at home.
*supernatural Power to surrender/lay it down/die to my old self – It is his power that works in us to allow Him to live more completely in our life! It is by faith! (verse 17)
*The more fully He dwells in us, the more rooted and established in love we become. (verse 17).
2. Power to know/comprehend Jesus’ love for us so that we may be filled to fullness - overflowing. (verses 19-21)
