How can we intentionally and successfully shift from the condition of believing in Jesus to believing Jesus? How about from believing Him to being influenced by Him – influenced by His Spirit? “Putting on the armor of God” has become a day-starter for many believers who want to do a better job of fighting evil away from their lives and families and work. I suggest that immediately upon waking, and many times during the day, asking the Spirit of the Living God to fill us is likely to change our lives and our families and our work.
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn’t see Him or know Him. But you do know Him, because He remains with you and will be in you.”
