Apostle Grace Lubega
Genesis 2:7(KJV); And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Every man in the first Adamic line is merely a living soul, like our theme scripture reveals. Any man in the Christ line is a spirit(John 3:6).
A soulish man functions differently from a man of the spirit.
If you function by the soul, you will always need the vindication of the flesh or body to demonstrate the strength of your convictions. What does this mean?
Take prayer for example. A man functioning purely in the soulish realm will not feel like his prayer is effectual until it is demonstrated through expressions of the body like tears, shouts, raising hands or bowing down. It does not mean that the actions are in themselves wrong. However, the soul will only define fervency through such bodily expressions.
This is not how the man of the spirit lives or relates with God. The spirit carries an authority in and by itself that does not need external expression for its vindication. When a man of the spirit prays, he does not have to shout in tongues; even a simple sigh can heal a man. Look at Jesus Christ after Lazarus died and those around him were weeping. The Bible says that he groaned in his spirit (John 11:33) That groan was enough substance in prayer to raise a dead man.
That is your life too as a child of God. The merest words from you without any accompanying semantics and theatrics yield great results. You don’t have to vibrate while prophesying, a single word from you simply spoken, carries the potency of the oracles of God.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The spirit carries an authority in and by itself that does not need external expression for its vindication. That is your life as a child of God.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I thank You for the latent power of the spirit that you have placed in me. I carry divine authority, strength and grace because I live my life from within. I am strengthened in the inner man every day and by this, I do great exploits. To the glory of Your name, Amen.
