It takes a deliberate effort to maintain a godly perspective in a negative world, not just having a positive attitude; but being spiritually minded. Having the mind of Christ involves abandoning my own will and ego, putting others’ needs ahead of my own, and humbling myself to serve even to the point of great personal sacrifice.
Many believers seem to think that being spiritual means we have to be religious. Just because you aren’t directly affiliated with a specific man of God or Pastor doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to be more spiritual. The whole concept of spiritual awareness is all about connecting with divine realities, which meditation and study of the Word with a consistent prayer life will launch you into that arena.
Your Spirit is the domain of the new birth, your soul is the entity that holds your awareness and memories of the experience, it is that place where the sense of being spiritually minded develops, it is the door between the spirit and the body, The Spirit encountered the new birth, body did not, your physical body acts like a vehicle to house your soul and the spirit, so that it can experience what it means to live in the material realm, that is why the soul must be constantly renewed by the Word to awaken the spirit always.
God is spiritual, God is everything; and then everything is spiritual. That should be a perspective of the believer; seeing things the way God sees and how He sees them. Meditation on God’s word and in- depth study will change our inner eyes to see what God sees and how He sees them. Learn to go beyond just reading the scriptures. Meditate upon them; let the words of Christ sink into you. 1 Timothy 4:15 …”Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.”
Praying in the Spirit or in other tongues is also a vital means of keeping you to be spiritually minded at all times. The value of praying in the Spirit is incalculable, profound and unfathomable. This is not some doctrines or teachings meant for a particular church or denomination. This is outpouring gift of the Holy Spirit upon all flesh. Praying in the spirit will set you on fire to serve God and become expendable for Him. Live in these truths and you will bless the world. GRACE TO YOUR HEART!
