Take Advantage Of His Might

Take Advantage Of His Might

 

 

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might

(Ephesians 6:10).

 

                  Our opening verse represents part of Apostle Paul’s final exhortation to the Ephesian Church. Notice he didn’t say, “Be strong in your muscles, and in the power of your bones…” no! Rather, he said “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”; not your might. This simply means take advantage of the Lord’s ability and presence.

               Now, think about it this way: here’s this little guy who’s always bullied on his way to school every day, beaten blue black by a rascal. After a protracted period, he finally gets his dad to accompany him to school one day, and then the same bully shows up; Only this time, the young lad is unruffled by the bully’s presence and even pours invectives at him; something he hitherto wouldn’t dare! Where did the sudden boldness come from? His dad’s presence. He is taking advantage of his daddy’s might, who obviously is bigger and stronger than the rascally bully.

                That’s what it means when the Bible says “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” It means to take advantage of His presence with you and in you, and make boast of what you’ve got; what you can do, because you trust in the power of His might.

               This was exactly what young David did when he faced Goliath; He took advantage of the Lord’s might. He knew that anyone who was in relationship with Jehovah couldn’t and shouldn’t be defeated in battle. Hence as a young stripling he killed Goliath of Gath because he took advantage of the greater One who was with him (1 Samuel 17:46-47). The ability you wield in the spirit realm to quell and annul the fiery darts of the wicked is of the Holy Spirit. Never depend on your human abilities, for they’ll fail. In Zechariah 4:6, the Bible says “…Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.”

            Remember, life is spiritual. So you’ve got to depend on the ability of the Spirit  at work in you to confront life’s challenges and win. In Acts 1:8 AMP, the Bible says “….you shall receive power—ability, efficiency, and might—when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…” That might came into you when the Spirit of God took up His abode in you. When you’re fully conscious of this truth, and take advantage of it, you’ll live a life of extra-ordinary accomplishments. Hallelujah!

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for the ability of the Spirit at work in me. I go forth today to win and bring you glory in all my endeavors, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
