We are spirit beings, living in a physical body, created for a purpose, born into a fallen condition. Our spirit yearns to be reconciled to its purpose; reconciled to our God. Even when our soul (thoughts/feelings), is unconscious of its true nature, our spirit knows its not at home in this condition. This time of our life feels like turmoil/unrest. It’s not our body or soul that is bothered, it’s our spirit. This is why we walk in unrest regardless of our physical situation.
When we finally see and accept the truth, oh how glorious it is! The veil is lifted from our eyes. From that basis, we begin our journey of belief restoration. This solid foundation gives us something to build on. Yet we still carry with us an intricate web of lie-based thoughts, ideas, and beliefs.
The Work of the Holy Spirit
It’s a good thing we are no longer living alone. The Holy Spirit untangles the web in our hearts. During this process, each lie now comes against our spirit in friction. The Bible refers to this as trials and tribulations.
With each trial and our cooperation to the work of the Holy Spirit, belief in a lie is eliminated. Each lie replaced with truth brings freedom. The picture of who God is and who we are becomes clearer. We increasingly walk in the purpose for which we were created. Realizing the power and authority we possess in us, we naturally and easily align with the will of God for our lives and manifest His divine power here on earth (aka the natural realm).
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
I’m so thankful that I have a God that loves me so. I’m thankful that he is showing me how to position myself to receive from him. I’m thankful that every day I choose to position myself, I receive truth and freedom from him. Thank you, Lord!
The chains are falling!
