ARE YOU IGNORING YOUR SOUL?     WHAT IS YOUR SOUL?

December 19, 2019

The apostle Paul reveals this to us when he wrote…..1 Thessalonians 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.”

  1. Man is a spirit  (the part of us that gets born again when we accept Jesus as our Lord, the part of us that connects to God). 
  2. We have a soul  ( our mind, our will, and our emotions)

3.  We live in a body  ( the apostle Peter called his body his “tent” that housed his spirit and soul  2 Peter 1:13-15)

Our spirit can be born again when we believe – but our soul – mind, will and emotions – can still be ALL MESSED UP.  Honestly that is most of our situations.  Many people give up on a life with Christ because they don’t understand this simple truth.  Our spirits are instantly changed when we repent for our sins and accept Jesus as our Savior – but our souls may be very damaged from things we have been through.  God understands this and has great compassion on us.  He will never leave your or walk away from you as you are in your growing process.  It takes a long time to grow, heal and change our souls.  God is patient and He will help and heal us.  (but we must humble ourselves, admit the hurt/problem and ask for help)  

Our souls can be sick and hurt just as bad as our bodies.  And this is something we must work through with God and His word.  But the FREEDOM that comes from our souls being set free in each area is awesome and worth every minute we spend on it.

The scriptures have all the answers we need as it is a living book given to us by our Creator.  Who knows you better than the One who designed you and created you?  But why am I so messed up and wounded inside?  John 10:10 tells us that  “Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy.” And he is ruthless.  But God comes to give us life and that in abundance.  (love, joy, peace, goodness, patience, kindness, gentleness, self-control, faithfulness).   

So the question that God is asking you – “Will you come with Me on a journey of honesty and truth and let Me set you free?”   Sometimes we get daggers in our souls that only God can heal.  Sometimes freedom comes by acknowledging to God that what happened really hurt us and asking God to help us to forgive someone that did the hurting. (not condoning what they did – just releasing it to God and getting free from it’s damage)

Freedom awaits you – if you will look inside – honestly – and go on this “journey to the center of your soul”  with the One who loves you and wants to see you free and lift the burdens from you.

John 8:36

“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

Believe and Receive.  Jesus calls you friend.  John 15:13

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”

My prayer is that you will let Him be your friend and do for you what no one else (or yourself) can do for you.  You are loved.
