According to scripture in 2 Pe 1:3, everything that you need to live the life that God has called you live has been given to you by the power of God through your knowledge of Him. The word life in this verse of scripture is from the Greek word Zoe, which refers to the God kind of life. The God kind of life is not an ordinary life; it is not an average life.
Friend, you must learn how to access the power of God in order to live an effective life. Without the manifestation of the power of God in your life you will not experience the fullness of life. God has made that power available to you by sending His Holy Spirit to dwell in every believer. You must consciously acknowledge the Holy Spirit, and yield yourself to His direction and promptings. This is key to living an effective life.
