Recently I was driving in my car when I heard The Voice of The Holy Spirit say to my heart, “I want to talk to you about prosperity.” I said, “Okay Lord please speak to me, I want to hear what you have to say. He then started sharing with me some things about “The Soul” of prosperity. That prosperity is definitely much deeper than “financial gain” or “material possessions”. As He started to share these truths with me, the scripture 3rd John 2 (TPT) came to my thoughts:
“Beloved friend, I pray that you are prospering in every way and that you continually enjoy good health, just as your Soul Is Prospering.”
The last part of that scripture really jumped out at me and I knew that The Lord was un-locking some deep truths for me to grasp, study and share!
Several nights later I had a dream where I was having a conversation with a young girl when she replied, “For me it’s all about the inner-action”. Upon waking up I had an, “Aha Moment” where I knew by The Holy Spirit that I needed to prepare to share This Word. He then gave me the definition of the word “Inner-Action”.
Inner-Action = The relationship between the mind, the will and the emotions and how they are displayed in an individual’s life through their interaction with God and others.
The soul is the seat and activity center for our, “Inner-Action”. This is where the relationship between our mind, our will and emotions is played out on a daily basis. In other words we will continually display what our soul relays to our heart, the activity center for our mind, will and emotions. God knowing the importance of this inner- relationship, has been talking to mankind about it for a long time. Let’s read in Proverbs 4:23 (TPT) what He has to say to us about this subject;
“So above all guard the affections of your heart,” “for they affect all that you are. Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring of life.”
The most common Hebrew word for heart is used in this scripture it is the word, “levav” “It includes our thoughts, our will, our discernment and our affections.” (TPT) Notes, pg. 960 (TPT).
Housed within Proverbs 4:23 (TPT) is the revelation of the, “Heart and Soul” connection. The Inner-Action of our mind, our will and our emotions and how “they affect all that we are.” Recognizing and understanding this vital truth is paramount, “to the welfare of our innermost being.” You see my friend, WE MUST LEARN to harness our mind, our will and our emotions to The Leadership of The Holy Spirit by, “guarding the affections of our heart”. Then and only then can we Safely and Effectively represent The Kingdom of Heaven to this lost and dying world. A world that is hurting so badly and in need of the Pure Healing Love of The Gospel of Jesus Christ poured into them, by Pure Vessels of The Most High God.
The word Harness is defined in Macmillan’s Dictionary this way,
Harness = “To get control of something in order to use it for a particular purpose.”
This brings us to a very important question, “How do we harness our mind, our will and our emotions, (our soul) to The Leadership of The Holy Spirit so that we can fulfill our God given purpose? The insight that we need in order to answer this question is found in
2nd Corinthians 10: 3-5 (TPT);
“For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims.” “Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with Divine Power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide.” “We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to The Anointed One.”
The Power of these scriptures when read, apprehended, studied and applied will enable us to overthrow and destroy those, demonic strongholds or as the Aramaic also translates, “rebellious castles”; centers of opposition to the light of The Gospel, “the defenses behind which people hide.” Ref. (TPT) Notes, pg. 502 (TPT).
The Atomic Bomb that obliterates these demonic strongholds, “rebellious castles,” hiding places of the enemy in our lives if we allow him, is clearly revealed to us in
Hebrews 4: 12-13 (AMP);
“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.” “And not a creature exists that is concealed from His Sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenseless to the Eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.”
When we Boldly speak what God Speaks which is His Word, The Bible, we are then wielding a Mighty Two Edged Sword. This Two Edged Sword is Alive and Full of Power and gives us the assurance that when wielded with confident authority in the Finished Work of Jesus Christ, we can uproot and demolish every “rebellious castle”, potential hiding place of the enemy in our lives.
This overcoming “Inner-Action” my friend is “The Soul” of true prosperity, which gives us the Grace To Be Strong and Live Free…..Boldly For Him!
