Where is your Spirit?


1 Corinthians 2:12 (New King James Version)

12 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.


Those of you that know me know that I have been working to get my spirit aligned properly. I've read many books and I have spoken to many people. What I have found is that in all my investigation, reading and seeking counsel, I am always led back to the bible.

In previous posts I speak about vibrations and finding the right words to keep your vibration on a high level so that you can experience your true happiness. I've tried everything, sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't...at least not the way I wanted it to.

Lately I have been reading the bible and internalizing the scripture to act as a shield against any negativity...and it works..the only thing is that the closer I work to become one with the spirit the more obstacles are thrown in my way.

Just a few days ago I was close to loosing my mind. I mean that in every sense of the word. It was a day filled with despair, loss and desperation. I was beating myself up consistently about the horrible choices I have made, how I could have been a better person and how I wish I had the ability to go back a fix what I have broken. Whats messed up is that this is exactly the frame of thought that had me going crazy. I neglected the scripture, my daily prayer and thanking God for a few days and it showed. I was detached from my spirit..detached from the now worried about what has happened in the past and what can happen in the future.

The scripture above says...and I am paraphrasing...that we have not been given the spirit of the world but the Spirit of God...to know that things have been given to us FREELY from GOD!

This is what we have and in order to stay in his grace we have to stay in the word and embed it in our hearts...the word should be the constant chatter going on in our minds. The scripture or scriptures you choose to memorize and recite should serve as a reminder that we have been given the blessing and it is not separate from who we are. We only have to search as far as ourselves..our spirits.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (New King James Version)

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct[a] your paths.



Now there are a few people out here reading this post who may be passing judgment and feel a particular way about what I am sharing and how it translates into my real life. Let me say this and be extremely clear...I am not perfect...my walk gets stronger everyday by the grace of God and even though you may hate me...I love you.


So...I'll keep highlighting my bible...keep earmarking the pages and find peace knowing that God has blessed us with his spirit and know that hard times are only temporary..a test of my paitience and faith. When the blessing comes everyone will know and recognize that what has been done could have only been accomplished by God.

God is Great.

Eddy,
This is very profound and clearly shows that no matter how many times the devil has given you bogus instruction, you are on the right road!
God bless you brother! Keep Reading, Keep Studying, Keep Growing in the Word!
