Man Reading Bible By Lake in the morning


Scripture: Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We have explore the various composition of man and came to understand that man is a spirit that has a soul that lives in a body.

There are those who give attention to the spirit and neglect their souls and body! Hence, Satan mess them up. And there those who care for their body and neglect their spirits and their souls, such people remain spirituly dead. All the three must be given adequate attention to make the total man. Today we shall be looking at the first one which is caring for man’s spirit.

1. Caring for man’s spirit:
The first man that was created was Adam. He was fully aware of his spiritual status. He was aware he is in the same class with God as demonstrated in naming creatures(Gen.2:19-20). Adam was in charge of the earth, he could access God’s mind on any issues neither was he afraid of anything.

However, that spirituality was short lived when Adam lost it in the acts of disobedience and sin against God (Gen.3:1-20).

Thank God that was not the end of the story, there was another Adam in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ. So whatever the first Adam lost was recover back by the last Adam (Jesus Christ).

Why is the human spirit important?

1. The human spirit is the medium of saturating the earth with Divine influence and Divine presence(Gen.18:19, Mal.2:15).

When a man moves into a location, spirit also moves into that location with that man.

Now depending on whom the man align with if it is God, godly presence begins to saturate the atmosphere and if it is the devil, ungodly presence begins to take over the atmosphere. It is the same presence that the man carries that will influence the children born by such an individual.

2. The human spirit is our means of worshipping God! Since God is a spirit, it is our spirit that must engaged in worshipping God.

This explain why if you are not born again, you can not enjoy fellowship with God:

John 4: 24. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Listen to me child of God, your mouth may sing the praise of Jehovah, it is the one that stemmed out of your spirit that is actually accepted. This is why we encourage people to pray with all your heart. If you pray with your mouth moving and your spirit is not involved, it is a share waste of time.

3. It is in the spirit that we arrest the restlessness of the devil(Luke 10:18-21)! It is our medium of exercising Dominion! Our authority is spiritual.
Therefore caring for the spirit is so vital.

How do we care for the Spirit?

1. The caring for human spirit begins by being born again: every one who is not born again is under the influence and control of satan the devil. Such a person could be described as dead spiritually:

Ephesians 2: 1. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

By being born again you are translated from the kingdom of darkness to light(Col.2:13) and your spirit man is released from captivity! He is now at liberty like the first Adam. He can now be trained to understand spiritual things.

2. Feeding your spirit with the revelation of the word of God (Jer.15:16): This is not stocking your brain with scriptures rather finding life applicable word that can be applied in every day Life that can be stored in your spirit. For Jesus said:

Matthew 4: 4. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God* .

It is quite unfortunate that many live by bread alone! The two thing we are to live by is both bread and word. The food of the spirit is the word of God! So make sure you are feeding your spirit every day.

3. Prayers and fellowship (Ps.16:11): It is in the place of prayer that encounter that could lead to Christ like character are formed. Those who are in constant fellowship with God, often develop God’s character faster than those who are not.

4. Fasting and prayers(Mrk.9:29): Fasting helps to humble the flesh for the release of the spirit. This explain why your spirit is agile during fasting than any other times.

5. Praying in the spirit (1Cor.14:2, 39); When you prays in the Holy Ghost your spirit is edified (built up). That speaking in tongues that goes on during praying in the Holy Ghost provides vehicles of interaction between man’s spirit and the Holy Spirit.

6. Listening to anointed worship/songs has a way of programming your spirit for success

Beloved, your spirit is the real you, take good care of her and you will be on your way to success.

Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. The decision to spend eternity with God is best made now. Give your heart to Jesus today.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord help me to take care of my spirit in Jesus name.

Prophetic Declarations:
– I prophesy the release of every spirit in prison houses in the name of Jesus.
– The power of limitations limiting you from making progress is broken right now in the name of Jesus.

Assignment: take time to pray in tongues, by so doing, you are charging your spirit.

From your brother Alex
God bless you real good.
