The below is based on Ephesians 3:16-19; 1 John 4:16-18; John 3:16-17; Romans 5:8-10; John 17:6; Philippians 3:12-14; 1 Timothy 6:12. Read them in the Amplified Bible.
May He grant me out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit Himself indwelling my innermost being and personality… that I may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp what is the breadth and length and height and depth of His love.
I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own that for which Christ Jesus has laid hold of me and made me His own. I press on toward the goal towards the prize to which God in Christ is calling me upward.
I fight the good fight of faith to lay hold of the eternal life to which I was called.
I can grasp things in the Spirit but only as I am strengthened with His power in my inner man by His Spirit. I don’t get the power to grasp spiritual things with my own mind or will power. It is with my spirit that I grasp and hold onto spiritual things. And for that I am dependent upon the Holy Spirit to strengthen me in my inner man with HIS power.
