All of our life springs from our spirit, therefore it is vital we are in good spiritual health. A troubled life can only spring from a troubled fountain, That is an unwell spirit.
Prov 4:23 “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”
The word used here, (Hebrew =’leb’) means ‘heart’, or the ‘centre’. It is referring to the centre of our lives. This needs to be guarded, because our whole life flows form here. The sprit that is wounded causes us to limp through life. There are many Christians who have simply died out on the battlefield and never been revived or raised back to life in Christ.
Just as our physical body needs food and water, our spirit must receive nutrition. Acts 3:19 speaks of ‘times of refreshing from the Presence of the Lord’ and in the Amplified Bible, “recovery as if from the effects of heat and reviving with fresh air’. However, the upkeep of our spirit is a two-way process and we can choose to let God into our lives or not. It’s a choice we make.
The hope for believers whose spirits have been broken is only in
- The intercession of other Christians. It is incumbent upon the ‘mother’, the church, to intercede and bring God to bear upon these people who have simply died.
- A direct encounter with God Himself
- The Spirit of God reviving them, bringing them back to life. This is why it is so imperative for us to allow the Holy Spirit to have His way in our gatherings as Christians, because He alone brings fresh life into the Body of Christ. This is especially true for those slain in the harvest field or in the inevitable battles every Christian faces.
If we are able to deal with, resolve, and heal these illnesses before they cause great damage, we have a far greater chance of enjoying a victorious Christian life There is healing in Christ. There is always a way through!
