I have spoken in the past about the connection between Spirit, Soul and Body. We are three part beings and all three parts must be attended to for complete healing and restoration.
 
 Today I want to talk about the soul. When you received Christ as your savior your spirit was made absolutely perfect! I believe the soul is the connection to releasing the deposit of life that was made in your spirit.  
 
What is the soul? Genesis 2:7 states that Man was created as a "living soul." The soul consists of the mind (your thinker), the will (your doer) and the emotions (your feeler). We "are" a spirit, we "have" a soul; and we "live" in a body. The soul and the spirit are mysteriously tied together and make up what the Scriptures call the "heart."  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” John 7:38 This is the life that was deposited in us at the born again conversion.
 
The writer of Proverbs declares,Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the issues of life." Proverbs 4:23. We see here that the "heart" is central to our emotions and will. If that is the case, then the mind is the control center that creates a “healthy heart” or an “unhealthy heart” and from it will flow healthy issues or unhealthy issues in our lives. So we need to watch over what we allow to go into our minds which in turn will watch over our hearts. The Bible says that as a man thinks within himself, so is he. Proverbs 23:7.
 
Why is it so important to renew the mind? The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy us, John10:10 and his weapon of choice are lies that he feeds your mind daily. He knows that if he can get us to believe a lie about ourselves or a situation, he has control over our emotions and then will have control over our choices.  Those lies come in forms of what we see, hear, think about and speak.   Every issue of life starts in the mind, as we think on a thing, we come into agreement with it and we start talking about it and gets planted in our hearts and grows a harvest.
 
There is so much sickness, emotional torment, and poverty that is rampant on this earth and I see many people suffering when they do not have to suffer. We are three part beings, Spirit, Soul and Body. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 says, And the very GOD of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray GOD your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ.So we need to attend to all three areas to receive complete healing.
 
RENEWED SPIRIT: "I tell you the truth, unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). That means that until you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you will not receive the kingdom of God, because the Bible says in Luke 17:21 that the kingdom of God is within us.  At that moment of becoming born again, everything that is of the Kingdom of God is planted in you. Those “things” are a new spirit, eternal life, the Holy Spirit( your power source), the ability to commune with God, forgiveness of sins, righteousness, healing, wisdom, faith, love, peace, joy etc. That is exciting; we have everything we need to be successful in EVERY area of our lives. So how do we release it?
 
REFRESH THE SOUL: Psalm 23:3 says that God refreshes and restores our soul. And how that happens is by renewing the mind.  Romans 12:2 do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. We need to diligently renew our minds to the promises and love of God for us. We need to wash our minds with the water of the Word of God.Ephesians 5:26. We need to wash our twisted minds that create stress and anxiety to our emotions and bodies, which then cause us to make wrong choices in our lives.  When we entertain any thoughts outside the word of God, we entertain the twisted dirty lies of Satan.  We need to read, meditate and plant deep in our heart the Word of God to replace any lies that we have allowed to enter our minds.  This is how we are able to TEST and PROVE God’s will, which is good, pleasing and perfect.
 
 Example: if you have entertained the thoughts that I am fat, I am ugly, unworthy and meditated on that lie, you will make choices in your eating habits and exercise program according to that lie.  You then become what you thought about yourself. You need to renew your mind to what God says, about you, that you are the apple of His eye, that He loves you with an everlasting love. Wash those lies away with the Word of God and watch the truth show up in your life.
 
When we renew the mind we bring our EMOTIONS into refreshment and healing, then our will (our choices) will become healthy.  Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers 3 John 1:2.  We must prosper the soul to be in health emotionally and physically. I know many people who take care of themselves physically, by being regimented in their eating and exercise programs, but end up getting sick. The soul realm is detrimental to complete health.
 
RESTORED BODY:  1 Corinthians 6:19-20  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. When we start to think in line with God, we heal our emotions and heal our bodies. We start to take care of our bodies, by thinking right; we will then make healthy choices that will prosper our bodies. We will eat right to the best of our abilities, we will drink good pure water, get enough sleep, and make choices that will build and nourish our bodies.
