Depend on Him

To walk in the Spirit is a challenging and inspiring exercise, for it combines activity with relaxation. To walk means to place one foot in front of the other. If you stop doing this, you are no longer walking-you are standing still. Walking always implies movement, progress, and direction. Sin shall no longer rule or dominate you when you are allowing the Holy Spirit to live Christ’s life through you. It is living by faith, living by trust, living in dependence upon God.

If we look to our own resources, our own strength, or our own ability, as Peter did when he walked on the water, we will fail. You cannot live the Christian life by yourself. The Holy Spirit must live in you and express Himself through you. Living for Christ is a day-by-day experience. It is a continuous dependence upon the Spirit of God. It is believing in His faithfulness.

God is our help. Dig deeper in this Anne Graham Lotz Bible Study.

Prayer for the day

Lord, so often I have walked on my own instead of walking in Your Spirit. Guide my footsteps this day, I pray in Jesus' name.

  4. Rosario Lewis says:

    Live a spirit filled life. Then Christ lives in you. You cannot keep your legs on two boats you will fall. Lord Jesus, help me to be always on your boat. Living by flesh means you will have pleasures of life but you will be away from God so no peace or joy or happiness. But living in the spirit then you have the fruits of Holy Spirit that is joy, peace, happiness , love … as mentioned in Galatians 5. That you Jesus for todays message. Glory to your name . Amen
