Living victoriously

A Christian life without the power of God is impossible. Think about it; there is no such thing as victorious Christian living without a constant dependence upon the Spirit of God. In order to be successful we have to depend on the Holy Spirit moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day.

Jesus never gives us an assignment without anointing us with the power of the Holy Spirit. In Matthew 28 Jesus gives us the great commission but He does not send us helpless.

In Acts 1 Jesus says, "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."

He says in John 14:26, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you"

Jesus is the best teacher that ever lived, yet His disciples had very little understanding because they were not born again. But when they received the Holy Spirit, He lead them into all truth and even showed them things to come. John 16:7

Jesus instructs us to receive the Holy Spirit because He knows we need Him to live the life He called us to live. Therefore my dear sister/brother, remember to surrender and submit to the Holy Spirit. Be diligent in your daily living as you let Him be your mentor.
