There are many good books written on the subject of the power of the Holy Spirit. It is not the intention of the articles on this site to educate or re-educate the reader as to the “how to” ways of walking in Father’s power, but rather to give personal testimony and encourage all of us to seek Father’s complete will for our lives now.

This scripture brings to light the fact that the spiritual world is real and all around us every day. We tend to think that life is all about the material world around us and we spend all our time trying to make our lives more comfortable materially.
