The Secret Of Power Living (Identify With Your True Self)

We always identify ourselves with our physical body. When our body is sick, we say we are sick. When our body is healthy and we are happy, we say we are happy and in the best of health. We function as though we only have body and soul in us. And as the soul takes the driver seat in our lives, we become emotionally high strung, victims of the prevailing moods of our emotions.

The Bible said, we were created in the image and likeness of God. And that image and likeness is the spirit and not the soul nor the body. The problem was, our spirit died when our first parents fell into sin. And the death of the spirit of man and the accompanying curses meted out to our first parents have been the bane of mankind ever since. We all have been born in the state of depravity.

But Jesus Christ redeemed us from these tragedies. Acceptance of Him as our Lord and savior enables the Holy Spirit to revive our long dead spirit. Now, the secret of power living is identifying with the spirit and not with the soul or body. Let the spirit take its reign over our lives and align our will with the will of the Father and we will see wonders unfold in our lives one after another.

First of all, we must concentrate on God's unwavering love for us. We claim the full benefits of Calvary. We must remember that we are co-heirs with Jesus Christ in the kingdom of heaven. The holiness and righteousness of Jesus Christ were imputed upon us when we were born again. And we are seated with Christ at the right hand of the Father. Whatever we ask in the name of Jesus, in agreement with the will of the Father, and through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, that we shall receive.

Nothing is impossible with God. So let us start to identify with our spirit and enjoy the benefits of power living. I am a living witness to this. I have been terribly sick for more than two decades now, and I always claim health instead of sickness. And I am well and able today, praise God. I have been retired from active work for so many years now, but God had supply all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. In all of these, all I can say is TO GOD BE THE GLORY now and forevermore.

This is very inspiring Sir Mel. The Lord is always good all the time. We may be in terrible situations sometimes, but God always comfort us using people around us as his instruments. Take care and God bless you always Sir Mel.

manalig lang sa Diyos at kahit may karamdaman kahit paano nabibigyan ng lakas ng loob..dalawang dekada na pala..tagal na rin pala..sana gumaling na iyang karamdaman mo..

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Arvin,
Ginagamit nang Diyos ang karamdaman ko para ipakita ang walang hanggan Niyang pagibig at biyaya. Marami na sa mga kasabay ko ang nangamatay na subalit ako ay buhay pa by the grace of God. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

MinnieRunner said...

Amen to that Mel. Honestly, before, I thought we were only composed of body and soul. But you were right, we still have the spirit which we badly need to direct our lives toward the Father.

God Bless!

Hi MinnieRunner,
It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that our long dead and dormant spirit is imbibed with power from on high when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior. Then everything is possible for us through that same Spirit. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.

Hi, and I claim it today Sir Mel... thank you for the inspiration.. dropping by for Nostalgia!

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Vernz,
I don't know if you are already born again because before we can claim something we have to claim it in the name of Jesus Christ for the Father to accept such claim. Anyway, thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
