James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
When we are filled with the Spirit it means shutting out the things of the world and concentrating on the things of God. This is not easy in today's fast paced and wicked world but when we do all the things mentioned in the previous five devotionals it will bring us closer to walking in the Spirit. We will have a closer relationship with God and we will be more aware of His presence in our lives.
Being filled with the Spirit brings joy into our life. Many people think the ideal is to find happiness but happiness is fleeting. Joy is something that is so hard to explain that you only recognize it when you have it. God says we can have joy unspeakable.
When we are filled with the Spirit we will bring Glory to God in our lives and that should be the ultimate goal for every Christian who is seeking a closer walk with Him.
