Many people treat The Word of God and the new covenant as though it were the law written on tablets of stone. “There they are now obey them in the power of the flesh” it’s impossible. We read the scriptures, we see these commands, we know it. How many husbands have declared “I know this is right but I can’t make it work, I know I’m supposed to love my wife this way but I just don’t have strength.” Of course you don’t, you have the strength to do nothing. So when you open that book and you see those commands you must realize that the only way you are going to be brought through this wilderness is through The Power of The Holy Spirit. Crying out as you read those commands “Oh God fill me” the constant cry of the believer. Although we are born-again and The Holy Spirit indwells in us we should constantly be crying out for greater and greater manifestations of His Power so that we might fulfill the commandments of God and live a godly life. In constant dependence upon The Work of The Holy Spirit.
