One of the things I am continually having to remind myself of is the reality that I am not a human being looking for a spiritual experience, but a spiritual being getting to have a human experience. While it is true that I live in the flesh and it has it’s limitations, the me that is living in the flesh is spirit and is limitless in time and space.
I sometime get caught up in living as if my spirit is the servant to my flesh and this is just not true, in fact, this is backwards and the reason that so many of us are frustrated, discouraged and often living defeated. This is the battle that really matters and the one that we need to make sure we are giving our attention and energy to.
“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.” -Galatians 5:16-18
When we finally begin to realize who we are and what we are created to be, it opens up a whole brand new universe filled with possibilities of blessing, growth and miracles. When I make the decision to live under the spiritual principles of the universe rather than the limited physical laws of the flesh, then a very amazing thing happens – I really begin to live, grow and thrive according to my created purpose. This brings a fulfillment and satisfaction like nothing else can, because in the SPIRIT, there is abundant blessing, unlimited opportunity and a never ending supply of love, light and peace.
When I finally remember that I am SPIRIT, I tap into who and what I really am and all the supernatural power that comes with it. Living at my true place of being, raises me above the limits of this physical world and opens up beautiful and breathtaking opportunity to bless and be blessed, which is what we were created for. This is the battle worth fighting…
