“For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.” 1 Corinthians 2:11-12 NKJV
Most of us are more aware of the things outside of us than within. Only our spirit man is able to reveal the issues of the heart. Proverbs 4:23. Without drawing close to God, you will not know your true identity in Christ. Similarly without the Holy Spirit, you will not know your spiritual calling and gifting of God. We are called to be the salt and light to the World. Matthew 5:13-14. I discovered my spirit man when I meditate on the Word of God, for it searches my heart and conscience. That’s where I commune with Holy Spirit, and to hear God’s still small voice.
Faith arises when God’s spirit moves within our spirit man. It’s like a fire shut up in my bones. Jeremiah 20:9. Spiritual awareness arises when we get into prophetic intercession, to know our calling and gifting. We discover the grace God had lavishly placed upon our lives before life and for eternity.
To God be the glory!
With Love Always,
