Your Personal Power

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16)

All believers have the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit as their personal power for living to please God. The form of the Greek verb translated “walk” indicates continious action, or a habitual lifestyle. Walking also implies progress; as a believer submits to the Spirit’s control, or leading of the Holy Spirit in obedience to the often simple commands of Scripture — they grow in their Spirit depended life. Of the flesh: This is not simply the physical body, but includes the mind, will and emotions which are all subject to sin. It refers to our unredeemed old man according to Scripture. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.(2 Cor. 5:17)

Father God, Thank You for Your indwelling Holy Spirit who is willing and able to direct me in the ways You want me to go. May I not take You anywhere You don’t want to go. May I not enlist You to do my will, but rather humbly submit to Your authority and to doing Your complete and perfect will You have for my life, In Jesus name, Amen.

May the Lord bless your walk today!
