It was the strangest thing! Tears welled up in my eyes as listened to the woman speaker ministering to another woman she had chosen from among our group of 50 or so. She didn’t just prophesy or minister healing to some part of the body. This was different.
While gazing deeply into her eyes, the woman began to administer blessing and encouragement to the spirit. Not the Holy Spirit, but the human spirit. This is the portion within us all that carries the DNA of our heavenly Father uniquely created at the beginning of time.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 says “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Our three parts: spirit, soul, and body are mentioned here. While living here on earth we often take care of our bodies and allow our soulish realm to completely run the show, but what about our spirit?
What I witnessed and experienced by allowing this ministry of encouragement to my spirit completely rocked my world. I knew by my reaction that something deep was being ministered to. The eternal part of my being enjoyed the blessing that day!
Since then, my husband and I have vowed to begin speaking encouragement and blessing to our spirit on a daily basis. We invite our spirit to take the led rather than allowing our soulish realm to make all the decisions…and we are noticing a difference!
Though we are still learning much more about this, I encourage you to begin blessing your spirit by declaring the Word of God over your life and see what how this affects you as well!
Let me know if you begin noticing a difference!
May the Holy Spirit fully fill and strengthen you in spirit, soul, and body today!
