Everybody dreams of a fulfilled life—one that results in our reaching maximum potential with only a minimum amount of conflict and stress. But as we learned in Romans 7, such dreams are more ideal than real. Nevertheless, we still long to be less frustrated and less anxious in our walk with the Lord. Who doesn’t desire greater balance and more consistency? But is that possible? God’s answer is yes, but the outworking of His answer calls for drastic changes in our mental attitudes and the breaking of long-standing habits. These alterations that lead to an abundant life are humanly impossible; we simply cannot pull it off, no matter how hard we try! But Romans 8 offers good news: the fulfilled life is divinely possible through the power of Him who lives within us. The secret lies in simply allowing Him to take control and change our walk.
