Inner strength

Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by Cturtle, Jun 12, 2017.

  1. To the saints (the consecrated people of God) and believing and faithful brethren in Christ..... Grace (spiritual favor and blessing) to you and [heart] peace from God our Father.
    Colossians 1:2 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/col.1.2.AMPC


    I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me
    [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency].
    Philippians 4:13 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/php.4.13.AMPC

    Christ can be defined (in Greek and Hebrew) as The anointing of the anointed one... And it is He Who infuses inner strength within us ... selah (pause and think about that).. let that just sink deep into your spirit and thinking right now.

    [Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
    Philippians 2:13 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/php.2.13.AMPC

    May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].
    Ephesians 3:16 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/eph.3.16.AMPC


    Then [Ezra] told them, Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet drink, and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. And be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold.
    Nehemiah 8:10 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/neh.8.10.AMPC

    One may ask how?
    By praying in the Spirit (Ephesians 6:18)
    Meditating in His Word (Joshua 1:8, Romans 12:2)
    And making a firm solid decision to walk according to the spirit (Galatians 5:16)... aligning our thoughts and actions, and choosing to walk in God's ways instead of by the worlds ways.

    For Romans 10:8 says.....
    But what does it say? The Word (God's message in Christ) is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which we preach, [Deut. 30:14.]
    Romans 10:8 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/rom.10.8.AMPC

    And according to Matthew 12:34b...
    For out of the fullness (the overflow, the superabundance) of the heart the mouth speaks.
    Matthew 12:34 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/mat.12.34.AMPC

    May you all be encouraged and rejoice for what God can do through you

    The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually).
    Numbers 6:24‭-‬26 AMPC
    http://bible.com/8/num.6.24-26.AMPC

    The grace (spiritual favor and blessing) of the Lord Jesus Christ (the Anointed One) be with your spirit. Amen (so be it).
    Philippians 4:23 AMPC,

  5. God bless you Gina...it's precious how He works and weaves through so many of His children, as we congregate and share and encourage and pray. He works it all to be edifying, encouraging, and His grace just ventures forth like ripples in a lake. Thank you for posting what He laid upon your heart. God bless you. :)
