Julie Ganschow speaks for all of us when she writes:

We often wonder why we have no power to carry out spiritual things. We wonder why our prayer life is flat lining, why our desire to read God’s Word is steadily waning, and why our joy is incomplete. The answer is very clear and it is found in this passage; we are not living or believing as though we are dead to sin.
