We have the power to overcome, to endure and to be strong but not in our own strength. We need God’s strength to do those things we cannot do on our own.
God’s Holy Spirit is the thing that allows us to have the power and gives us the ability to do the hard things in life. The Holy Spirit is a helper. It is an influence. It can even give us peace and comfort even when there is no reason to have peace. It can cause us to be happy when we don’t have a reason.
