RULE YOUR SPIRIT!
Pro 25:28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
The Bible says if you don’t have control over your Spirit you’re like a city without walls that is broken down. A city without walls is exposed to attacks, in olden days cities had to have gates and walls with hedges- when the walls are broken the city is plundered. When the Lord gave Joshua Jericho when the walls were broken, they owned everything in that city. So it is when your walls are broken you are possessed! You stop being your own you start to move under a certain power, you start to live under control. If you don’t know how to control your spirit it is exposed to any kinds of attacks, it doesn’t matter how much you pray, fast or give however many Christians don’t know what it means to control their spirits.
That’s why the Bible says in 2Ti 2:24, 25 (KJV)And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; To oppose yourself means to set yourself against truth! The devil fights such people as a city without walls He can plunder anything of theirs because they oppose themselves – This many Christians do without knowing People die of cancer because they don’t know how to control their Spirits. Once you rule your Spirit everything else is sorted.
The Bible says in Pro 18:14 (KJV) The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear? The word bear here is help, support, sustain, the Bible says a wounded Spirit who can help? The problem is your Spirit- If your Spirit is not healed your wasting time, Today in the world, we are doing it the other way round we work on the outside to get the inside but there is no prayer that can help a wounded spirit only the word can. You are a total sum of the state of your spirit!
No man is afflicted before He goes astray the Bible says in Psa 119:67(KJV) before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. That makes you 100% responsible for what happens to your life you have to come to a point where nobody is responsible for your happiness. The Bible says nothing from without can defile a man. (Mar 7:15 (KJV) There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man). It’s not about what enters you it’s what comes out of your Spirit!
The Bible says in Pro 18:8 (KJV) the words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. Gossip attacks your Spirit not identity when people talk about you the devil wants to destabilize your Spirit. Don’t let words get into your Spirit! Put your Spirit right! The war is not the thing outside – Everything you see around you is a total sum of what is outside you. When you have not killed your Spirit you can’t die outside. This life of salvation is a Choice!
The bible says in Pro 15:13(KJV) a merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. A spirit is broken by sorrow so what the devil does is he does something that breaks your sorrow You have the responsibility to control your spirit because the devil knows the moment He makes you sorrowful He has you. Learn to have a merry heart by force!
