If you need God’s help, you need to show desperation towards Him, you need to show God how much you need him. You must not go to God like Naman that is; by presenting yourself to a man of God on titles or ego. Show that you believe in the manner of God and we need to live in faith by son of God. We need to walk by spirit Galatians 5; 16. "Walk by the Spirit, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh." Living the Christian life means serving in the strength that God supplies. 1 Peter 4:11, “whoever renders service let him render it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ."So the Christian life is serving the needs of others by the strength of God so that God gets the glory for your service. When you live the Christian life, you live so that hour by hour Christ gets trusted, you get helped, people get served, and God gets glory. The reason we exist as a church is to help each other and live like that.
What we need to live a Christian life.
Admit that without Christ you can do nothing. Live by faith, walk by the Spirit, or serve in God's strength until you admit your utter helplessness without Christ, physically, morally, and spiritually. We would not have come into being without Christ. John 1:2–3, "He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made." Our eternal personhood was created by Christ out of nothing. We would not exist without him. We cannot make it without prayer. The very heart of Christian living is to admit our weakness and to seek strength and help from God. God commands it in (Psalm 50:15), "Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify me." Trust in a promise of God. TRUST in some promise that assures you that the world's incentive toward disobedience is not as great as God's incentive toward obedience. We need to live by faith Galatians 2; 20. Living by faith means overcoming obstacles. Make wise decisions always since every day we are confronted with choices. To do right or to do wrong, to be honest or dishonest, to be loving or to be indifferent, to forgive or to go on holding a grudge, to speak of Christ or to be silent, and every day there are obstacles that we encounter which includes: fear, pride, addiction to comfort and they all come in all shapes and sizes. Whenever we encounter all these obstacles, our spirits becomes weak.
