Without the gift of Holy Spirit, you cannot break free from above. People may give you confidence, but in your silent moment, you will still feel the same. You may indulge yourself in drinking, socialise, but in your silent moment, you will still feel the same.

The only way you can break free from above is when the Holy Spirit is in you.
