Ephesians 6:10 is a verse about the supernatural power God has made available for our fight with unseen, demonic forces that come to war against the soul.
The word "strong" is taken from the Greek word endunamao, which describes a power whose purpose is to infuse a believer with an excessive dose of inward strength. This particular type of endunamao power is so strong that it can withstand any attack and successfully oppose any force. Observe that this kind of strength is found "in the LORD." You gotta stay connected.
The word "power" is taken from the Greek word kratos, and it describes demonstrated power. In other words, kratos power is not a power that one merely adheres to and believes in intellectually. Rather, this kratos power is a power that is demonstrative, eruptive and tangible. It almost always comes with some type of external, outward manifestation that one can actually see with his or her eyes. This means that kratos power is not a hypothetical power; this is real power!
Paul uses kratos in Ephesians 1: 19-20 in his description of the power that raised Jesus from the dead. This was an eruptive power, a demonstrated power, an outwardly visible power. It was the strongest kind of power known to God or man.
Paul uses this very word to describe the power that is available for our use! With this empowering Presence of the Holy Spirit working in our lives, we can expect the very same power that raised Jesus from the dead to operate in us! Remember, this is a demonstrated or outwardly manifested kind of power. So, when this power begins to operate in us, it immediately seeks an avenue of release so it can demonstrate itself.
So, turn up your level of expectation! Start anticipating that this mighty power of God will begin to flow through you!
