You Don’t Have to Fail Any Longer

Don’t pray that God would teach you how to love like He loves. Pray that He would fill you with Himself and He would love in and through you. Don’t pray that He would teach you to have joy. Pray that the living God, full of joy, would enter into you. Don’t pray that He would teach you how to be peaceful. Ask for the God of peace, the Prince of peace, to infill you. Because if you try and imitate in your own strength, you will be a miserable replica. But if you allow the impartation of Jesus Christ to overcome you, suddenly it all works. Because it’s Him imitating Himself, and He’s very good at being God.

Eric Ludy, The Gospel (I highly recommend watching this 12 minute video!)
