Daily Devotional - The Fruit of the Spirit

But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence).
—Galatians 5:22-23
When the Holy Spirit lives inside you, you have everything He has. His fruit is in you. The seed has been planted. God gives each one of us various gifts to use, but in order to use your gifts in the most powerful way as He desires, you must first allow the fruit to grow up and mature within you by cultivating it. Each time you choose to operate in the fruit of the Spirit it grows.
When you know what God has available for you and you release your faith to walk in it, His Spirit will give you the power you need to produce good fruit. If you are willing to develop the character qualities of God in your life, which is the fruit of the Spirit, you will live an exceptional type of life that is reserved only for His sons and daughters.
