I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.

Ephesians 3:16 (NLT)


In today’s passage, we are reminded that our strength doesn’t come from our own efforts but from God Himself. It’s easy to rely on our abilities and resources, but true strength is found when we depend on God. His Spirit empowers us from His glorious and unlimited resources, enabling us to overcome any challenges we may face.

When we invite Christ into our hearts and trust in Him, our roots grow deep into God’s love, providing a firm foundation for our faith. We are then able to comprehend the vastness of God’s love, which surpasses all human understanding. It is a love that is immeasurable in width, length, height, and depth.

As we immerse ourselves in the love of Christ, we begin to experience its transformative power. This love fills us with a sense of completeness and brings us the fullness of life and power that comes from God. It enables us to love others selflessly and to navigate life’s challenges with grace and perseverance.

So, let us take a moment to reflect on areas in our lives where we tend to rely on our own strength. Are there situations where we feel overwhelmed or depleted? May we surrender those areas to God and invite the Holy Spirit to guide us and empower us. As we trust in Him and cultivate a deeper understanding of His love, we will find renewed strength and His abundant blessings in every aspect of our lives.


  • In what areas of your life do you typically rely on your own strength instead of God’s?
  • How can you actively seek the empowerment of the Holy Spirit in those areas?


Extend understanding and support to someone you know who may be facing a challenging situation. Share a word of encouragement or offer to pray for them, demonstrating God’s strength through your actions.


Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for the reminder that my strength comes from You. Help me to recognize when I rely on my own abilities and to turn to Your Spirit for empowerment. Guide me today and grant me the strength I need to face any challenges that come my way. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
