His glorious riches

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

How rich is God? He owns everything because He created everything! There are no limits to what He can give. Keep that in mind —

God wants to use all He has to give us strength. God’s love and forgiveness brings us back to Him, but it doesn’t stop there. Through His Spirit living within us, God gives us His power. He works with our “inner being,” with the person we are deep down, with who we really are. And the person we really are is the person God created us to be. The Creator of all things has also created us, and made us singularly special to glorify Him. Who we are created to be is more amazing than we can imagine, and God wants to bring us to this place with His grace and power.

As God works through His Spirit, Christ begins to live in our thoughts and feelings and emotions. We become loving and giving and chase after God in all we do. And we do it in a one of a kind way that only we can accomplish, because God has made us with our own exceptional purpose and gifts. There are no limits to what He can do through us. He provides us with the power to be that unique person He created us to be through His glorious riches!
