Living in the Spirit

"Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation-but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God."
                                                                                   Romans 8:12-15

I believe the hardest thing for a Believer is to live in the Spirit. To daily live in harmony with the Holy Spirit, where He is central to our lives. It's difficult because everything in this worlds system is opposed to our walking in the Spirit.

The church where I attend just finished an incredible event where non-stop worship was offered to the Lord for 50 hours. The hours that I attended were wonderful, you immediately sensed the Presence of God just walking into the sanctuary and it was easy to enter into the worship.

But that time is over and many of us are back to our jobs and daily routines and God desires that we live daily yielded to the Holy Spirit, not our sinful desires and bents, but to put those to death by yielding to the Holy Spirit every second of every day.

Father I thank you that Your Word is sharper than a two-edged sword dividing soul and spirit. I pray for a renewed fire to live according to Your will and desires and not my own, may I stay yielded to Your Spirit. I praise Your Name. In Jesus Name, amen.
