That’s a Good Question or Two

Ephesians 3:16 Amplified Bible (AMP) 16 May He grant you out of the riches of His glory, to be strengthened and spiritually energized with power through His Spirit in your inner self, [indwelling your innermost being and personality],  source

In verse 16 Paul sets forth what he is praying for the people.

To be strengthened.
Okay. Who of us does not need to be strengthened?

But he does not stop there.
He says he is praying they will be SPIRITUALLY ENERGIZED WITH POWER. And how and where is this power to come?
From themselves, their own undertakings and doings?
NO. THROUGH HIS SPIRIT.
And where is this SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD?
In them, it reads.

Is this still true? Is He in us? Then why are we not so spiritually energized? Why do we conduct ourselves as powerless people?

This is not a feel-good message, is it? Have we had too many feel-good messages? Is that why we conduct ourselves as people with little to no power to see GOD working and changing and transforming our lives and the lives of those we love?

So, now what?
Where will you go from this verse?
Where will I?
