Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by your observing the law, or by your believing what you heard? — Galatians 3:5
God's Spirit is given and God's power is displayed in those who believe. We don't make the Spirit come to us — the Spirit is God's gift to followers of Jesus. We cannot make God's power happen in our lives — this power is released through the work of the Holy Spirit in those who believe. So what is the bottom line? Do we believe or do we try to force God to act by adhering to a set of laws or do we believe in Jesus and trust God will supply what we need?
O Father, move among us by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe in Jesus and his power to save, redeem, and transform. So we ask for you to move with power among us! In Jesus' name. Amen.

We cannot force Holy Spirit to work in us or others we need to step out in faith and just believe. When we do this act of obedience then we will see the mighty hand of God move and miracles happen. Studying, seeking wisdom through worldly means will enable our minds to know a lot of things but it takes real courage to step out and take the chance to look like a fool to those who belong to the world and trust what Scripture says.
Jesus is a real man of courage. He was not afraid to go against the world and the common way of doing things. He stood in the face of utter humiliation and said,“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34
Recently I watched the movie 'The Cross and the Switchblade'. I have attached the movie here and I encourage you to listen to 1:31 - 1:41 where David Wilkerson talks about having the guts to be different from the world and choose to love instead of hate.
Holy Spirit is calling all people and offering a relationship with Jesus, the only way to Father. Are you listening? Are you a real man or a real woman? Only the brave ones who are not afraid to step outside of the group will find the way to eternal salvation and true, pure happiness.
