Walking in the Spirit (Devotional Series – Intro)

<–back to Walking in the Spirit Main

We are beginning a new devotional series today using what the Lord has been teaching me. I believe that if we, as Christian Mothers, would live our lives for Jesus and WALK in the Spirit, we would have happier, more peaceful and victorious lives. We would also be training up our children to live the same!

Walking in the Spirit


Note: I am not here to argue the Trinity. It is a fact. If you have an issue with this fact, take it up with God.

How can the Trinity help us walk in the Spirit?

Well, God is the Trinity. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are a package deal. They each have a function and purpose and are ONE God.

This lesson is not meant to explain HOW that is. However, just to help those who may have a hard time wrapping their minds around three being one, let me give you a few practical examples…

  • the platypus. this creature has the tail of a beaver, feet and bill like a duck, and venom like a snake. However, it is still a platypus. It needs ALL of it’s parts to BE a platypus.
  • water. it can take the forum of ice, liquid or vapor. In the end, it is still water.
  • woman. a woman can be a Grandmother, Mother and Daughter, all at the same time. Each with a different role, but the same person.
  • sandwich. You have ham, cheese and bread. When you put them all together, you have one sandwich. Each part different. However, together, they make ONE sandwich. You must put it all together for it to BE a sandwich.

We can go on and on with examples explaining the Trinity. Honestly, it requires faith and study. None of these examples REALLY explain every part of what the Trinity means. The point is, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are each unique in their purpose and function. However, one cannot be without the other. They are all ONE God as a three part unit.

OK, back to our lesson…

How can the Trinity help us walk in the Spirit?

To answer this, we must dig into the gold mine of the Word of the Living God.

The Father. He is our Abba (Daddy). He is the Will part of the Trinity. He is the Head. I guess the best way to describe the Father’s role would be, Director. We know that Jesus did the Will of the Father and nothing for Himself.

For I have come down from heaven not to do My own will and purpose but to do the will and purpose of Him Who sent Me. – John 6:38

So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man on the cross, then you will understand that I Am he. I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me. – John 8:28

The Father has all the plans. He is the one with the vision. He already has our life planned out, if we would just walk into it.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. –  Jeremiah 29:11

The Son. Jesus is the Word. The Word made flesh.He was there at the very beginning with the Father and Holy Spirit. He is the WORD.

IN THE beginning was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.

He was present originally with God.

All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. – John 1:1-3

The Holy Spirit. He is the energy. He is what gives us the strength to DO the Father’s Will that we learn from the Word (Jesus).

IN THE beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. – Genesis 1:1-2

Hovering or moving means to flutter, move, shake. He was the One that put the energy in Creation. He breathed life into it. Another example of How the Holy Spirit is the energizer is in Psalm 104:30. There are MANY more as well. You should do a study into this for yourself. I have also provided several Scriptures in your homework.

[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. – Philippians 2:13


I use the Amplified and KJV for most of my studies. However, for this Scripture, I also like the New Living Translation…

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. – Philippians 2:13

OK, to in closing…

The Trinity DOES help us walk in the Spirit!

The Father has a plan and purpose for our lives that requires us to do His WILL.

He tells us His Will and purpose for our lives in His WORD. We learn it by consistantly studying and reading the Word.

We are then given the ability to DO His Will that we learn through His Word by the POWER of the Holy Spirit.
