Christian author Michelle McClain-Walters never takes for granted her calling as a chosen child of God. Daily she purposes to walk in the Spirit and not the flesh, as directed by Galatians 5:16, so she can fulfill her kingdom purpose.
It's a mandate, she says, that all believers should follow.
"I believe there is one thing and that is that God chose you, you didn't choose Him," McClain-Walters told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of "Greenelines" on the Charisma Podcast Network. "He is the one who led you before you even had a thought. He knew you. His love is something you can trust.
"The Holy Spirit is the governor of the earth, and we have to learn how to walk in the Spirit so that we do not fulfill the lust of the flesh. We can do nothing without the help of the Holy Spirit. He's going to guide you down the path of life. You have to spend time praying in the Holy Spirit, like Jude who said, 'Beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Spirit.'
"Pray in the Holy Ghost. That keeps you in the love of God. So, you really have to develop a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit. He's your prayer partner. He teaches you how to pray. He's the one that brings comfort to your heart."
