12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words….. 16 for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
– 1 Corinthians 2:12,13,16.

The only way you can truly know and live out your purpose in life is with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Why? Because the spirit realm controls and supersedes the physical realm.
Jesus said God is Spirit and everyone that worship Him must do so in spirit and in truth. You cannot really worship God without the Spirit. (John 4:23-24)
Man exists in three dimensions;
1. Spirit – the real person created by God. It never dies and will return back to God to give account and face judgment or reward.
2. Soul – the realm of intellect, mind, will, and emotions. It is the transmission between spirit and flesh. it’s like a sponge, it soaks up whatever it is immersed in.
3. Body – the flesh that enables man to live on earth. it is what we see and feel—our physical state.
At Spiritual Formation, you have a rebirth of the spirit with eternal life when you receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. You become reconnected back to the author of life.
The soul and body do not become born again, the spirit does. Your spiritual formation progresses as you renew your soul by feeding on the word of God to reshape and realign your standard and values from the world’s tradition and culture to the kingdom’s (Christ’s).
This is why God has given you the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the governor of heavenly resources. The one that lives in the Father and in Christ that can infuse you with the mind of God, the mind of Christ.
Fulfilling purpose, deploying your gifts, and excelling in life becomes a struggle and hustle when you don’t follow the Holy Spirit. In fact, your identity as a child of God is at risk because it is only those that are led by the spirit that are sons of God. (Romans 8:14)
In this season, God is releasing great and mighty grace but you will need the mind of Christ to harness them and that is only accessible through the Holy Spirit.
It’s time to come back to the spirit-led life, that is the only way to achieving purpose goals indeed.
LET US PRAY:
Father God thank you for lavishing me with your love. Thank you for adopting me as your child. I am like Jesus on earth. I reflect the glory of God just like Jesus. I delight to do the Father’s will.
Father God, I will no longer be a stranger in your house. I am a son in the father’s house. In Jesus’ Name, I declare I am entitled to the blessings of the covenant.
Father God, I trust in you. I’m unshakable in my trust in you. I declare I am blessed. I’m like a tree planted by the water.
In Jesus’ Name, I Pray, Amen.
