There was time when I tried to live by the rules of my church, but the legalistic doctrines were choking the life out of me. Then, I discovered Life in the Spirit, and my life was forever changed! Jesus came to give you a more abundant life, He and the Father live in you, and have given you the Holy Spirit to help you learn how to walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit(Gal 5:16a). When you were born again, God gave you His nature and His ability. You can choose to live in and by the Spirit of God.
Father, I thank you for strengthening those whose hearts are fully committed to you. You prove yourself mighty on their behalf. LORD, you have done great things for your people, and we are filled with joy! We are a happy people, replacing the lower life for the higher life of the Spirit. Thank you for the great things you have done and are doing for us in the name of Jesus, amen.
