Walking in the Spirit
The Christian life can only be lived successfully through the power of the Holy Spirit. At the very moment when you asked Jesus Christ to come into your life, the Almighty God of the Universe took up residence within you through His indwelling Holy Spirit.
Natural power is available to us through the laws of nature operating within God’s created physical realm. Every person has natural intelligence, strength, abilities, and resources which are used for normal living.
