Is it Possible to have the Spirit Daily in our Lives?
Genesis 6:3 states, "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh".
In that scripture, the Lord tells us that we can't always have the spirit daily in our lives. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to have the Spirit daily in our lives. The next verses help us to understand why we can't have it all the time:
1 John 1:8: "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."
As we sin and make choices that go against God's will, we lose the Spirit in our lives.
Romans 3:23 states, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God"
Sin pulls us away from God and His spirit. However, when we repent, we can regain the Spirit back in our lives.
