Romans 7:18-19 ASV
For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me, but to do that which is good is not. For the good which I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I practise.

Paul is explaining that there’s no good thing that dwells within himself. The verse talks about how rebellion, disobedience, disconnection from God takes place even though we have the knowledge of what is good and that which is not.
Paul explains he doesn’t have the ability to do it himself. If there’s something that has to be done, we ought to depend on the ability of the Holy Spirit.
Because, we can’t live the life we ought to by our own ability, Jesus died for us and gave His Holy Spirit to do a work in us.
As you begin to depend on the Holy Spirit you will gravitate towards righteousness and your life would become fruitful to God.
The book of John 7:38 says: “Anyone who believes in Me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”
When we put our faith in Jesus. He makes us a channel of blessing to everyone around us.
Today, ask the Holy Spirit to work in you, for you and through you. Live your life dependant on the Holy Spirit and not on the flesh.
