As I have talked about in other blogs, we are three-part beings: spirit, soul, and body. Your spirit is the real you – the part that got born-again. Your soul is your mind, will, and emotions, including your intellect and reasoning – your conscience. Your body is obvious. It’s your earth suit that houses your spirit and soul. It’s your flesh and that’s how you contact the physical world around you, with your five senses.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV) 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Having said all that, I want to look at the body – also called the flesh or the carnal part of us – what we need to in order to function in the earth. However, the problem arises if that’s all you live by because there are two realms – the physical realm which you see all around you and the spirit realm which, for the most part, is invisible to us. It’s very real but we don’t contact it with our five physical senses or our soul – our intellect. We contact the spirit realm with our re-born spirit. That’s the realm where God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the angels operate.
I said all that to say this: if all you’ll ever believe is what you can see, hear, smell, taste, and touch or reason with your mind, then you seriously limit God in how much He can work in your life. God is a Spirt and we must contact Him spirit to Spirit.
John 4:24 (KJV) 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Now, I realize science and the medical field have come up with some tremendous discoveries and many people put their trust in that. However, what do you do when they don’t have answers to your problem? What do you do when a hurricane or tornado approaches and you feel completely vulnerable with nowhere to turn? God’s Word has the answers!
Brothers and sisters, that’s why I write these blogs – to inspire, empower, and encourage you to put your trust in God and His Word. He has never failed us and never will. There are no faith failures – just people who failed.
But, there is a catch. We have our part to do. God has already done His part. We have to get into His word and learn His ways so we can fulfill the plans He has for us and live a victorious that’s worth living!
