Topic: UNDERSTANDING YOUR SPIRIT ( part 1 )
Text : Psalm 51: 1-19
Psalms 51:9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Psalms 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Psalms 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
It is important you know that your spirit plays a major role in your life, have you heard someone said ‘ my spirit is down ‘? At that moment, he is not feeling well, probably disturbed, weary or down. Those feelings are coming from within, at the time you are excited there is lifting in your spirit.
When your spirit is down, your life will be down, when it is wrong, your actions will be wrong, that is the reason the Psalmist said in v. 10 of our passage ‘ create in me a clean heart, and renew right spirit within me ‘ this psalm was written after he slept with Uriah’s wife and killed Uriah, he could trace his actions to the fact that his actions were wrong because his spirit was wrong, and now he asked God to renew right spirit within him, he knew that is absolutely inevitable if he must always take right decisions. So, it will not be out of place to say ‘ right Spirit helps one make right decision, right decision births right action.
GETTING YOUR SPIRIT RIGHT.
To what is your spirit devoted? You must check this, if you give attention to immoral things, Your spirit will be immoral, if you can’t keep your eyes from phonograph, pictures of nakedness, nude pictures, you will build lust in your spirit, which, if care is not taken can break your home, because you might soon start running after strange women.
In like manner if you feed your spirit rightly it will feel right, feeding it with God’s word, prayer, worship, inspirational songs and messages, all these will keep your spirit healthy and at that point God’s Spirit begins to relate with your spirit. This is when your worship to Him is accepted, you will also be able to feel His presence and hear His voice clearly.
For you to experience lifting in life, first of all your spirit must be lifted, in happens first in the spirit before physical. Keeping your spirit right is preparing for the Holy Spirit to lift you. I will give more explanation on this tomorrow. God bless you.
* Lord renew right spirit within me.
