Walking in the Spirit


As we follow the Lord in daily obedience our walk is to be in the Spirit. To walk in the Spirit means that we have moved away from living a life within ourselves, to a life that Catherine Marshall describes as “beyond ourselves.”

God calls us beyond the limits within our own strength, to the limitless power of His Spirit;

  • beyond the limits within our own understanding, to the matchless wisdom of His ways;
  • beyond the limits within our own means, to the boundless supply of Christ’s riches;
  • beyond the limits within our own love, to the endless depths of the Father’s heart;
  • beyond the limits within our own best efforts, to the countless blessings that flow from the river of His favor;
  • beyond the limits within our own assistance, to the ceaseless help that comes from the One who created the heavens and the earth.

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”  Ephesians 3:16-20 (NLT)

How to Pray in Faith to be Filled with the Holy Spirit

We are filled with the Holy Spirit by faith alone. However, true prayer is one way of expressing your faith. The following is a suggested prayer:

“Dear Father, I need You. I acknowledge that I have been directing my own life and that, as a result, I have sinned against You. I thank You that You have forgiven my sins through Christ’s death on the cross for me. I now invite Christ to again take His place on the throne of my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit as You commanded me to be filled, and as You promised in Your Word that You would do if I asked in faith. I now thank You for directing my life and for filling me with the Holy Spirit.”

Does this prayer express the desire of your heart? If so, bow in prayer and trust God to fill you with the Holy Spirit right now.


If you prayed this prayer we would love to hear from you . If you would like to know God deeper we can connect you with an email mentor and/or send you some great links.
