Have you ever gone through a challenge such as a health issue, and while going through it, said: “Lord, touch my body so that I may be healed”? Or, perhaps you faced a financial challenge and called on the Lord to “touch” your finances so that you could experience prosperity. While these requests sound spiritual, they actually aren’t based on the Word of God. We must make sure that the things we pray and say are in line with the Scriptures so that we can get the results we are looking for. The truth is that everything we need to get manifestation in our lives is already available to us in our recreated spirits. We possess the very power of God within us. Our job is to align our souls with our spirits in order to draw out the resources we need for our specific situations.
Becoming born again is not just a free ticket to heaven, but it is much more. It is God’s will that we not only experience a future with Him in the kingdom of heaven after we die, but that we also experience heaven on earth as well. There are many Christians who are experiencing anything but heaven on earth; their lives are marked by the same failures and powerlessness of those who are not in a relationship with Jesus Christ. This simply shouldn’t be.
At the point of salvation, the Holy Spirit, Jesus, the kingdom of God, and all of its benefits become a part of our recreated spirits. Therefore, we possess everything we need from the Father; it’s all in us! The reborn spirit believes the Word of God and is in agreement with its promises; however, the problem lies with the unrenewed soul (the mind, will, and emotions). While our spirits become born again when we accept Jesus, our souls do not. We must make a quality decision to renew our minds with the Word of God so that our thoughts, choices, and feelings are submitted to the Scriptures. Only when we get our souls in line with the Word of God can we withdraw spiritual power from our spirits. This is the power that changes and rearranges our circumstances to reflect the blessing instead of the curse.
Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” and 2 Peter 1:3 says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” These two scriptures show us that the power of God, which contains healing, deliverance, prosperity, abundance, and everything else we could ever need, is resident in our spirits. We don’t have to beg and plead with God to do something for us because we possess the power to get results.
Getting our souls to come into agreement with our born-again spirits and the Word of God means making daily meditation on God’s Word a priority. Romans 12:1-2 says we are to be transformed by the renewing our minds so that we can prove what is the perfect will of God. We know that healing, deliverance, protection, and abundance are the will of God, so when we allow our thinking to be transformed by the Word, we can actually manifest these things in our lives. When we keep our spirits and souls aligned, our physical circumstances have no choice but to change.
There is no lack in your reborn spirit, which means everything you will ever need for success is in your possession. Faith in the Word of God, mind renewal, consistently confessing God’s promises, along with obeying what God tells you to do are the keys to unlocking the power of God’s kingdom in your life. You don’t have to wait another day for God to get involved in your situation; instead, focus on aligning your soul with your spirit, and you will begin to see your circumstances change.
