VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. According to His glorious might

"[We pray] that you may be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of His glory"

1. His might and power - His miraculous power, and His own vigor, power and strength.

That's why we don't have any stress, for we lean on the LORD GOD, those who have stress, have not used GOD's Glorious Might and Power, but their own power and might which are easily consumed.

2. Supporting verses:

Zechariah 4:6 (Amplified Bible)

Then he said to me, This [addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of Whom the oil is a symbol], says the Lord of hosts.

2 Timothy 1:7 (Amplified Bible)

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Hosea 1:7 (Amplified Bible)

But I will have love, pity, and mercy on the house of Judah and will deliver them by the Lord their God and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by equipment of war, nor by horses, nor by horsemen.

1 Samuel 17:45 (Amplified Bible)

Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied.
