The filling of the Holy Spirit is a repeated experience. We constantly need to be filled with spiritual power if we are to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord.
1] Allowing circumstances to overwhelm you blocking your momentum. 2] Allowing false doctrine to fester and grow. 3] Failing to use doctrine to handle the experiences of life.
