The Human Spirit (2/7)




The human spirit in mankind is the source of the whole life. Who we are,where we have come from and where we are going. It makes sense of our journey.

In the human spirit is found the vitality, strength and power needed to sustain life, to nourish and nurture the soul and body , and to bring it to Godly maturity

The health and condition of the hidden human spirit reflects back into the natural human mind, emotions and physical health in that person.

A broken damaged spirit will reflect in the natural life, a broken damaged person.

Where a seed of rejection is sown in a life and anger and injustice reign, then feelings and thoughts  allow the soul to dominate the spirit.
This mechanism allows the soul to usurp the protective role of the spirit, and the flesh says " I will do it my way". This is instead of allowing the spirit to find solace, healing, restoration, peace and joy, that is in the Heart of God, through the Holy Spirit.

In our human spirit we have a true picture of our identity, or our real heart before God. It shapes our personality and nature, giftings and temperament. It is the precious core of who I am  and who I am becoming. It is through my spirit that God is able to change me and give me new life.

(John 3:3 NIV)  In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."
(John 3:4 NIV)  "How can a man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!"
(John 3:5 NIV)  Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.
(John 3:6 NIV)  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
(John 3:7 NIV)  You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.'
(John 3:8 NIV)  The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."

It is through the human spirit that our minds are renewed, mindsets are discarded and truth replaces the lies implanted by Satan.

(Romans 12:2 NIV)  Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

It is through our human spirit that God gives us purpose in our lives through His calling and through mighty visions and prophecy. Through our human spirit He seals our destiny.

(2 Corinthians 12:1 NIV)  I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord.

(Acts 2:17 NIV)  "'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.

It is in our human spirit that the roots of our individual sexuality are found that can be damaged or oppressed in sexual abuse.

(Psalm 10:17 NIV)  You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
(Psalm 10:18 NIV)  defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more.

(Eccl 4:1 NIV)  Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed-- and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their oppressors-- and they have no comforter.

(Amos 2:7 NIV)  They trample on the heads of the poor as upon the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name.

(Luke 4:18 NIV)  Jesus said "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed,

(Luke 4:19 NIV)  to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour."

It is with our human spirit we commune with God in Jesus.

(Hebrews 13:15 NIV)  Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise--the fruit of lips that confess his name.

(Matthew 6:6 NIV)  But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
