Your spirit is alive and well and living inside your body
by Jack Vorster
7/15/2019 / Christian Living
It is only natural for us to use pronouns to refer to ourselves or others in the words we speak, as in, “I don’t know what I’ll be doing tomorrow, but I know what you will be doing.”
Who does the “I” or the “you” refer to in any sentence where we use these pronouns? Better still, who is doing the talking when words come out of our mouths? It is certainly not our body or our brain nestled between our ears doing the talking. The words we speak emanate from our spirit, which constitutes our life – the real “you” or “me”.
The words of our spirit come out of our mouth because our mouth is the “funnel” through which our spirit speaks. Your brain can be likened to a highly sophisticated spirit-powered physical engine room linked to your spirit and on continual standby for instructions from your spirit. Your brain has no say in any matter – it does what your spirit tells it to do.
Your spirit uses your brain to animate your body in line with the thoughts and actions taking place in your spirit. If your spirit decides to turn thoughts into words it will trigger the speech centre of your brain to release the words and perhaps also instruct your brain to be impactful by using body language as you speak.
Let’s put it in perspective and consider the following scenarios.
People sitting together at a table having a chat are human spirits having a chat.
Business executives having a board meeting are human spirits having a board meeting.
Courtrooms are filled with human spirits deliberating on the fate of those human spirits accused of crimes against other human spirits.
Members of Parliament are elected human spirits representing the human spirits of those who elected them.
A person driving a car is a human spirit driving a car.
A housewife doing grocery shopping is a human spirit doing grocery shopping and perhaps filling her basket with too many unhealthy items for consumption by the physical bodies of her family.
Your human spirit resembles your human body which, in turn, is very likely to resemble the likeness of your lineage and their DNA make-up.
Your intellect, emotions, memory bank and all the information ever absorbed throughout your lifetime are firmly imbedded in your spirit and, in essence, reflect the unique personality and character of your soul.
Your spirit has another component known as your mind, the ‘chief executive officer’ of your spirit. And it is this spiritual mind of yours that determines your success or your failure and the quality of relationships with others. The mind of your spirit will not always agree with your spirit, depending on the condition of your spirit. Your brain is merely the physical servant of your spirit and the mind of your spirit.
The Bible speaks of a troubled spirit; an anguished spirit; a jealous spirit; a hardened spirit; a sorrowful spirit; a contrite spirit; a broken spirit; a steadfast spirit; a hasty spirit; a provoked spirit; a haughty spirit; a humble spirit; a vexed spirit; a patient spirit; a proud spirit; a heavy spirit and many more expressions to do with emotions.
This certainly serves to prove that the spirit part of the human make-up forms the conscious, living part of man and that the condition it is in may well determine the words of our mouth. This is where your mind plays a huge role. Some people (human spirits) tend to be vindictive, argumentative and self-entitled and it is the spiritual human mind that decides to display this side of the spirit’s personality to fellow human spirits. Your mind can either be a powerhouse of achievement and success or a powerhouse of destruction and failure.
So, the next time you start a sentence beginning with “I”, remember who is about to do the talking. Let the words of your spirit be worthy of being heard by those around you.
