Three Fold Power

UV 837/10,000 Three Fold Power Eph 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; Our inner man or woman is renewed day by day by the Spirit of the Lord with His might or power. It is our share in His glorious inheritance that we have access to His power in us. That power quickens the Word to our mind so that it does not remain head knowledge but is the Word at work in our lives. The first power that is at work in us is the power of His Word. It instructs and directs our spiritual feet on the paths we should take, the decisions we should make and the ones we should avoid. God’s love is unconditional but His promises are conditional to our believing in these and obeying the condition of obedience attached to virtually every promise. The second aspect of His power at work in us to strengthen , equip and enable us from within is the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. He is the oil in the spiritual lamp that is burning in us all the time. We need to keep our lamps polished and clean for the Holy Spirit to remain in us and empower us with His might. He gives us boldness to share our experiences and the truth of God with others. He gives us even the very words or utterance that we should speak even in the high councils of man. He gives us functional gifts of grace that we need to be effective in our professions, our leadership and our ministry. He ministers to us even as we minister or serve others. We should take care not to grieve the Holy Spirit or take Him lightly. The third aspect of His power in us that strengthens us with might in our inner being is the very Name of God- Jesus, El Shaddai, El Jireh, El Shalom, El Adonai, El Rapha, Ebenezer God, Emmanuel, Jehovah Shammah, Jehovah Nissi, Lamb of God, Lion of Judah, Bright and Morning Star, Prince of Peace, Eternal King.. As we remember these names, the power from within is released in accordance with the manifestation with which that name is connected. If we want the might of God to be revealed, we praise and thank El Shaddai. Power will be released from His throne even as rays are emitted from the sun and stars. If our situational need is inner victory, recall to mind and spirit Jehovah Nissi. If we need inner forgiveness and cleansing, pray to the Lamb of God to wash and cleanse with His blood. If we need inner peace, raise our souls to the Prince of Peace or El Shalom. If we need comfort, remember the Comforter. If we need a manifestation of inner healing, pray to Jehovah Rapha. If we are feeling lonely and forlorn, remember Emmanuel. As we need help at all times to face life’s challenges and to accomplish the purpose of our lives, remember Ebenezer at all times.
