Having received the Holy Spirit after you're born again, there's a day-to-day or continual infilling of the Spirit that you must experience in order to live the higher life of glory to which you've been called.
The latter part of our opening scripture lets us know what to do to be filled with the Spirit like this: you'll have to speak to yourself in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs! You'll have to consciously talk, sing, and make melody of the Word in your heart to the Lord! You'll have to give thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and submit yourself to others in hloy reverence. Making this a conscious and consistent practice is how to be full of the Spirit all the time.
When you let the Holy Spirit work through you and you're overflowing with His fullness, you won't need to try to muster boldness to say or do things. You won't need to try to stir up some power in the face of adversity. Whenever you open your mouth to speak the wisdom of God; words that are divinely inspired, because you're full of the Holy Ghost.
If you want the glory of God to be seen in your life; if you want to walk in dominion over the devil, sickness, disease, infirmities and death, then you must consciously and consistently practice being filled with the Holy Spirit. Make this a personal goal everyday of this year, and the challenges that may come your way will be walkovers for you. Nothing will be impossible unto you. You'll be able to change hopeless situations because you're full of the Holy Ghost and power.
I'm full of power and dominion and nothing is impossible unto me! I function by the power of the Spirit today, in wisdom, and I have perfect understanding of all things, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
