Topic: Build Your Spirit The Right Way
Author: Pastor Abraham David
My dear friend, I pray that everything may go well with you and that you may be in good health — as I know you are well in spirit.3 John 1:2 GNB
How well and how prosperous your life would be, and how healthy your body would be depends on how well your spirit is: your health, success and prosperity in real life depends on the success and the prosperity of your spirit man. No one ever experience real progress in life without the progress of his spirit first; the success of a man must first come from his spirit. The people in the circular world called it “the subconscious mind,” but in biblical term, we call it the spirit man, or the hidden man of the heart as apostle Peter calls it.
In our scriptural text, the elder who is John the apostle, prayed for and wished the beloved Saint Gaius wellness and prosperity according to the wellness and the prosperity of his spirit. In the Amplified Bible, it says, “Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].” John knows that physical health, success and prosperity in real life all depend on the spirit, and since he knew how well Gaius was doing spiritually, he wished him health, and physical prosperity.
For you to make progress in life, be successful and prosperous, you must be successful in your inside first, the more progress you make in the spirt, the more progress your life reflects in the physical realm. Many people don’t know this so they think they can progress without their spirit man given special attention to develop him and make him grow and progress.
Your prosperity and success must come from your spirt. Even Satan who always perverse the ways and the things of God cannot prosper anyone without doing something to the man’s spirit. When anyone goes to him for riches and wealth, he knows that the person can’t develop his spirit the right way, so he first possess the person’s spirit and give him instructions on the rituals he must do and sacrifices he must make. These rituals and sacrifices are spiritual exchanges that the spirit of the man engages in to make riches and wealth flow to him in real life.
You can see that even the devil doesn’t give anyone anything without first going through some spiritual exercises and exchange to build his spirit on the dark side. But you don’t have to get involved in any transaction with the devil, build your spirit man the right way by building your spirit with the word of God in the area you need a change in the physical and your spirit man will produce the physical equivalence of what you deposite in him, that means your spirit man is the store house where you store the spiritual equivalent of the blessing and material wealth that you want in the physical.
My spirit is prospering, so I prosper in every area of my life. All the days of my life, I live in perfect health, and I walk in and enjoy unlimited riches and abundance. Hallelujah!
