“be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18) is to be controlled by the Holy Spirit. This is a present continuous action and requires a believer to be (a) daily yielded to God, (b) daily in repentance with confession with godly sorrow, (c) daily allowing the word of God to richly indwell the inner man. Being controlled by the Holy Spirit empowers a believer (a) daily in spiritual battle (Spirit versus flesh) and, (b) daily in living out the person and character and conduct of Christ and in being obedient to the will of God.
You Can’t Fix It, But God Can
If Christ can bring us from death to life, then there is absolutely no situation we will ever face that God cannot conquer. Is there something in your life right now that is keeping you chained down? You can’t fix it, but God can!
