Welcome to those who long to live Spirit filled life
When we serve God, we will discover sooner or later that the great hindrance to our work for God is not others but ourself. We will discover that our soul and our spirit is not in harmony, for both are tending toward opposite directions. We will also sense the inability of our soul to submit to the spirit's control, thus rendering us incapable of obeying God's highest commands. We will quickly detect that the greatest difficulty lies in our soul, for it hinders us from using our spirit.
Many of us (God's servants) are not able to do even the most elementary works. The reason is that we are not able to discern the spiritual condition of another, and send forth God's messages under anointing and to receive God's revelations. Due to the distractions of the soul, our spirit does not seem to function properly. It is basically because our soul has never been able to dealt with. For this reason revival, zeal, pleading and activity are but a waste of time.
When God comes to indwell us, by His Spirit, Life and power, He comes into our spirit . Outside of this spirit is the soul wherin functions our thoughts, emotions, and will power. The outermost being is our physical body. We must never forget that our spirit is where God dwells, where His Spirit mingles with our spirit. Our spirit "wears" the soul. And the spirit, and soul "wear" the body. It is quite evident that we are generally more conscious of the soul and body, and we hardly recognize or understand the spirit at all.
We must know that he who can work for God is the one whose spirit can be released. The basic difficulty of a servant of God lies in the failure of the spirit to break through the soul. Therefore we must recognize before God that the first difficulty to our work is not in others but in ourselves. Our spirit seems to be wrapped in a covering so that it cannot easily break forth. If we have never learned how to release our spirit by breaking through the soul , we will not be able to serve. All the work we do will be considered as the dead work in the sight of God. Whether our works are fruitful or not depends upon whether our soul has been broken by the Lord so that spirit can pass through that brokenness and come forth. The Lord wants to break our soul in order that the spirit may have a way out. When the spirit is released , both unbelievers and Christians will be blessed.
