First the Spirit..then the Soul..then the Body
There are times when we go through severe testings in our body and much time is spent in prayer and in waiting before the Lord to be restored. This often results in the Lord being able to speak to our hearts very definitely and draw us afresh to Himself.
Many times in many ways, The Lord is trying to get our attention, to awaken us to the reality of Christ within His many-membered Body and how we are neglecting this very important truth. We are not yielding fully, to the Holy Spirit to bring us into this truth because we are so occupied with temporary things. For this to be a reality we must enter in together. This is the very hour in which the "birthing of the manchild will take place" (Revelation 12). God is laying His hand upon a body of ovecomers and drawing them into that place in God where He can train them and bring them into a special place of communion with Him. Its not what we are doing for The Lord that is so important but what we are becoming. Through the dealings of God in our life we lose confidence in the flesh and are brought to a place of perfect weakness. It is this place that we should remain. A place of waiting without ceasing, for it is this place that His strength is made perfect. This is the Spirit of The Overcomer. This is the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus!
Romans 8:2, "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death."
The Spirit of Life is the healer. It flows from our spirit into our souls and through our bodies.
We wait before the Lord with expectant hearts that He will intervene in our lives and lift us into the reality of all that He accomplished on our behalf. That we might know in the here and the now the power of His resurrection. That where He is there we may be also.
