For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:14
And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1
Jesus and Paul were constantly led by the Holy Spirit. The walked with God. They never ignored the Holy Spirit. Paul said, “imitate me as I imitate Christ.” Do you imitate Christ? Are you Christlike in all things? God wants you to walk in the Holy Spirit, so that you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
A lot of believers are not enjoying victory because they have not learnt the secret of absolute dependence on the Holy Spirit and God’s power and grace. They are still trying to do it by their own power and ability, when the word of God explicitly said that by ourselves we can do nothing, and that man’s power is of no use all all. When it comes to inner spiritual strength and ability to live the way God wants, it is by grace, power and the Spirit of grace.
So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them. Hebrews 13:9
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Ephesians 3:16
Your strength comes from God’s grace. When you accept this truth and walk by it, you will be humble and keep praying for more and more grace. Then God will keep supplying you with more grace because He gives grace to the humble but resist the proud. It is the truth that you know and walk in that sets you free.
God’s grace is available and He supplies it from His throne of grace. His throne is the throne of grace, where help comes from. The Holy Spirit is our helper – never forget!
Why then do we sometimes forget? It is the proud sin nature in us that makes us depend on self and ignore God’s power and grace. There is a cure for that sin nature – God Himself by His Holy Spirit. Walk in the Holy Spirit and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh!
