Energizing the Inner Man , By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
For this reason I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 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 3:14-16).
Man is a Spirit living in the physical body, the Spirit that dwell in your body is the real you, your body is categorized as the outward man.
As the body can be week or hungry if not properly fed , the Spirit man can also be week if not properly nurtured.
The Inner man (The real you) must at all time be watered or fed with the word of God which is the food of the Spirit , to help you carry out your daily divine assignment , and to deal effectively with the issues of life.
Food and water to your physical body is what the Word of God are to your Spirit (The Inner man) The bible called the world of God water . Eph 5:26 "...that He might sanctify you,... by the washing of water with the word.
And Jesus said man must not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Luke 4:4
Your Inner man is empowered as you spend quality time meditating on the Word of God, and more especially when you speak or pray in the Holy Ghost.
Speaking in tongue is like building your muscle in the gym , you gain Spiritual fitness to stand all the strategies of the devil. 1 Corinthians 14:4 "He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself..." , that word edify means to build up yourself, to develop inner strength.
You can not resist the devil with a weak Inner Man, you can not maintain the Love of God without being addicted to meditation in the Word as a way of life. Psalm 119:19.
In the Name of Jesus, I’m strengthened with divine ennoblement in my inner man by the Holy Ghost. I function today with the Spirit of might, dominion and excellence, as the Word of God gains the mastery in my spirit, soul and body; dominating my thoughts and actions, in Jesus’ Name.
