The Holy Spirit is the one who gives life, that which is of the natural realm is of no help. The words I speak to you are Spirit and life… (John 6:63 TPT).

Acts 19:20 tells us that in the city of Ephesus, “So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.” This is no surprise at all because when you study Revelation 2:2-3, the Apostle John, by divine revelation, unveiled the state of the Ephesian church. It was a very spiritual church.

However, in Ephesians 3:14-16, the Apostle Paul prayed for them and said, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.”

He said, “I am praying for you that God would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened (invigorated) with might—miracle-working ability. He’s emphasizing the importance of giving recognition to the working of God’s Word in our lives and the working of the Holy Spirit in our Christian growth.

Another version says to be strengthened with excellence by the Holy Spirit in your inner man; so that what you learn of God’s Word will not just be in your head but working by the Holy Spirit in your life. He’s talking about the power of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit working out that which is the perfect will of God in your life so that your Christianity will be effective and evincive.

PRAYER
Dear Father, my words are spoken forth in demonstration of the Spirit and power. I utter words that are consistent with your will, plans and purposes continually, knowing that my words are filled with power to produce results for your glory. Amen.
