Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Ephesians 6:10 (Amplified)

In the battle (spiritual warfare), we need to draw our strength from Adonai. How does that occur?
▸ through the indwelling of the Spirit of God
▸ through the study, application and mediation on the word of God

The power is never ours; rather it is His power. We are merely tapping into it. In other words, it is His strength–not our strength–that allows us to stand in the day of battle, so we must first appropriate that strength in order to be able to stand.

What is the power promised?
The nature and extent of the power available to me is boundless–it has no boundary, no end either in time or in space or outside of time and space. It is the power that only a limitless, almighty, un-created God can give.

It is the power of Elohim, the Creator God, who spoke creation into existence from nothing.

It is the power over nature, which opened up the Red Sea for a million plus Israelites to walk through and pushed back the Jordan River during the flood season, so the Israelites could march into the promised land on dry ground. The power that healed the man by the pool of Bethesda, that healed the man with the withered hand, that healed the paralytic lowered through the roof by his friends, that healed the woman with the issue of blood, that restored sight to the blind, and healed the lepers.

It is Resurrection power, the power that raised Jesus from the dead, forever releasing us from the power of death.

It is salvation power, the power to take and sinner and make her into a saint.

It is sanctifying power, the power to transform a life, to make a Paul from a Saul and sane man from a demoniac.

Once we consider the power available, it is easy to see how the battle can be won even against even the strongest and most battle-savvy enemies.
