How can we build up and strengthen our spirits?
One of my favorite scriptures is: “the strong spirit of a man will sustain him in time of bodily pain or trouble.” Proverbs 18:14 Amp.
Well, how do we build up our spirits and be able to stand strong when trouble comes against us or when sickness attacks? God is so good to always give us direction and plans for us to live in victory!
The Bible also says in Joshua 1:8 “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth; but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
God wants us to be prosperous and have success and He has given us the plan for a victorious life.
Here are four steps to build up and strengthen your spirit:
Meditating in the Word ~ “O how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.” Psalm 119:97
Practicing the Word ~ “Be doers of the Word and not hearers only deceiving yourselves. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work this one will be blessed in what he does.” James 1:22, 25
Giving the Word first place ~ “Your testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.” Psalm 119:24
Obeying your spirit ~ “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16, 17
The will of God will be known to you, even in the smallest details of your life if you follow these steps. For this to happen, God’s Word, not your human reasoning, must dominate your thinking. Holy Spirit has given us the Word so if the Word dominates us then Holy Spirit dominates our thinking!
Now you know how to strengthen your spirit and keep it strong! Pop Hagin taught on this subject many years ago and it is always good to recall and reflect!! Amen.
