We have a spirit of love, power and a sound mind. We are able to bear up under many trials and difficulties in life because of the strength of our spirit. It is the Spirit of Christ dwelling in us that quickens our spirit and makes us strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.
We are so blessed! We can go through much as He upholds us with His mighty hand of power. We withstand infirmities, losses, and afflictions. Instead of doubting God in times of trials, we find ourselves standing in faith and totally persuaded that the outcome of our situation will be glorious. It is through reading and abiding in the Word of God that we continue to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in our inner man. As we are rooted and grounded in love, we are filled with the fullness of God.
Even though we are strong in spirit, we also have a soul and a body. We have to recognize the conflict we find ourselves in at times. We have a treasure in an earthly vessel. We can be weak in our bodies. Our emotions can be moved in many directions. Our mind may be battling thoughts opposite to the mind of Christ. Our will may not be totally surrendered in some areas, but we can rest assured our Spirit is strong in the Lord and will sustain us through it all, from glory to glory!
Proverbs 18:14 “The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, But who can bear a broken spirit?”
