“Living under God’s Power”

One of the things that can be a struggle for many Christians is that we think we can live the Christian Life on our own self-sufficiently. This is something that God did not intend for us. God wants us to depend on Him alone to live the Christian life.

The key to godly living is relying on Jesus to live through us. At the moment of conversion, the Spirit of Jesus, also known as the Holy Spirit, came to live within us.

Romans 8:9

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.

The Holy Spirit primary responsibility is to live the life of Christ through us. When we rely on Him, He helps us think, act, and react as Jesus would in our place. As we develop spiritually, we grow in our ability to allow Him to live through us. Galatians 2:20 puts it this way,

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Start your day tomorrow in prayer and tell the Lord, “It’s Your life—I’ve surrendered it all to You. Thank You for dealing with each issue I face today.” We will still experience temptation and adversity, but now we know it’s not our responsibility to face those things in our own strength. In His power, we can have joyful, confident, and productive lives.
