August 19th Condition Your Soul I
Bible Reading: 2 Cor. 10:3-5
1 Thess. 5:23
‘now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ’
Man is tripartite in nature. Principally you are spirit but have a soul and live in a physical body. Your soul comprises of your mind, emotions and will and is the seat of your person and personality. Your mind is your intellect. It determines what and how you think and self-esteem. Your mind is crucial to success because that’s where ideas are hatched and harnessed.
2 Tim. 1:7
‘for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind’
The mind is the arena for success or failure by producing incredible or disastrous thoughts. The battleground for prosperity or poverty, health or sickness and godliness or ungodliness is the mind. Conditioning the mind to biblical standards is part and parcel of the success journey.
Ps. 42:5-6 ‘why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance. O my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, and from the heights of Hermon, From the Hill Mizar’
