Every day I ask God and command my soul to be separated from my spirit. Perhaps many are not familiar with this but according to Hebrews 4:12, we are to allow the word of God to separate our soul from spirit and joint from marrow. Too many times the soul suppresses the spirit and holds it hostage when God’s original intent and design for us was for our Spirit being to rule on the outside, not our soul and body.
Heb 4:12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.

When the Bible speaks of carnal Christians, it is referring to those whose bodies (or flesh) is the dominant power in their lives. We weren’t meant to live like that. We have to make a choice every days to separate our soul from our spirit being and walk by the spirit and be led by the spirit. Our spirit Being is what communicates with God.
The Father is looking for those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. That means our communication line is through our spirit being first. Then the soul must be subjected to our spirit and our spirit subjected to the Spirit of God. The body should be our slave. We are not to be enslaved to our body or our soul.
There is a divine order of “being” and if we are led by the dictates of the body and soul, we can never rule and reign as God intended us for us. This is why many are enslaved to addictions and bondages of all kinds. Paul said, “I die daily.” Immature Christians don’t want to die to the dictates of the body and soul. It is a type of spiritual laziness and self worship.
How hungry are we really for God? Are we willing to give up these nasty dictates of the body and soul that that don’t lead to life? Jesus redeemed us from this curse and yet many Christians still live like slaves. Beloved, God has called you to freedom. Freedom from the enemy’s grip and also freedom from yourself. Oh there is so much to say concerning this. Oh how God wants to take us higher and deeper.
We must discipline these bodies and our soul to be subjected to the beautiful spirit being inside of you that should really be in the outside. The glory of God should be the first thing that people see from you. You are a light in this world and you cannot be held hostage by your soul and your body of yiu truly want to soar in the spirt with unlimited freedom. There is so much more. So much more. 🔥
