Day Thirty Six

Ephesians 3:16 (ESV)
…that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, …
In his letter to the church in Ephesus, Paul is explaining to the Jews and Gentiles on what to believe, helping believers understand God’s grace which comes in the form of Jesus and then at the end of chapter 3, begins praying for our spiritual strength. We understand God as one god, three members – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We see this in the Apostle’s Creed in which we speak – God who is our Father and Creator, Jesus who is God’s son and our Savior, and the Holy Spirit who lives within us. Sometimes during our life there can be trouble, distress, and difficulties – having the Holy Spirit live within us should give us hope and confidence in our daily lives especially knowing that we have God living within us.
John 3:16 gives us the eternal hope and confidence because Jesus was sent to die for us, so that we can one day live and reign with our Father. What do you normally do when your confidence is low? How can this verse encourage you?
How can you prepare your heart for the Holy Spirit to be welcomed in?
Three different times today – take a few minutes and invite the Holy Spirit to reveal himself to you. Start your prayer with the invitation and just be in silence. Share your experience with someone else!
