Knowing how to be Strengthened 
"That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;"
Ephesians 3:16

Do you need strength in your inner man? Do you need encouragement in life? No matter the state of your weakness, God is prepared to strengthen you, if you can call upon Him in faith. In the passage under review, Apostle Paul prayed a heartfelt prayer that Ephesian believers be energised or "strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man."

The truth is that we all need strength to achieve or accomplish our various goals with minimal stress. God is still in the business of strengthening the hands of those involved in His assignments! Are you engaged in any good work or divine assignment like Nehemiah? Then be rest assured of God's readiness to strengthen you.

But Like Nehemiah and Co, try to accept the responsibility to strengthen yourself in Him by doing the work assigned to you! The Bible says, "... so they strengthened their hands for this good work."
Let's consider 3 ways to connect with Strength:

1. Angels!
"Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me."
Daniel 10:18-19
Like Daniel, we can be strengthened by angels. Angels excel in strength, as such they can strengthen us when we are weak and tired. Put your angels to work, by invoking their help!

2. Man!
"And Jonathan Saul's son arose, and went to David into the wood, and strengthened his hand in God."
1 Samuel 23:16
Man can strengthen man! In this passage, we see how Jonathan went into the wood to strengthen the hand of his friend, David. I pray that God will bless you with the gift of men forthwith!

3. Food!
"And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus."
Acts 9:19
Food is necessary for strength! Lack of food can procure weakness or even sickness. May you not lack food in your storehouse! May God bless you and family with the resources or means to always eat balanced diet!

I decree and declare that you will be strengthened by the power of God in all aspects of your life in Jesus mighty name.

Yours sincerely,
Joe Jesimiel Ogbe
