“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.”

Ephesians 3:16-17 NIV

If I limit my understanding of God’s blessings to external blessings only, (i.e., house, car, money, mate, job, etc.) I may inhibit myself from experiencing the fullness of life Christ came for me to have. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink,; or about your body, what you will wear. For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.” Matthew 6:25a, 32 NIV

Consistently demonstrating the proper posture (humility) of a sincere believer positions me to experience the extraordinary encounter of being endowed with the person, presence and power of the Lord Jesus Christ. The bible teaches the Christian how to have the balanced perspective of enjoying this life while seeking sincerely to allow the life of Christ to manifest in and through us to be a blessing and benefit to others as we walk by faith. Like one who has an ambition for power in the work place, it is God’s desire that we aspire to experience the power, person and presence of Christ working in and through us to experience the fullness of life God intended for us to encounter in our faith walk with Him. God has desires for us as we seek Him for the fulfillment of our desires. The sincere believer prioritizes God’s desires for life, over their own, trusting God will grant them the desires of their hearts as they walk with Him by faith.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” – Hebrews 12:1 NIV There are many whose lives emulate principles of success that we could learn from and model that would help us to experience success in life, but there is only one life Whose example provides with it His person, presence and power to help us to be like Him and experience the success He encountered as we walk by faith!

May God bless you and help you to become strengthened in your inner being, through faith in Christ, so you may experience His power and the fullness of life Christ came for us to have.
