It’s a bit saddening that we pay much more attention to our outer body, than we do for the inside. What we don’t know is that the inside is of greater importance.
The truth we must understand is that the spirit controls the body. Without the spirit, there is no life, hence the body is useless. What gave me more exposition about this was this example of the “mad man”. The mad man acts under the control of the mad spirit. Before he was mad, he was all clean and normal, but the moment he becomes mad, he begins to show manifestations of that spirit, that’s why you’ll see that he would begin to behave abnormal. At that point, his body doesn’t have a choice on whether it wants to be normal or not; it acts in accordance to the spirit in control.
Where am I going to? God has given us His HolySpirit and commissioned us to do things in His Name. You would be cheating yourself when you still pay more attention to your body, than His Spirit in you; when you focus on how incapable you are based on how you look or based on your seeming strength.
It is time to look beyond what you think you can do and start looking at the Spirit. Remember it’s the Spirit that manifests in you, as long as it’s in control. So, when you let Him take control and He gives you a particular task, you shouldn’t be worried about whether you can do it or not. It’s not about you, but Him. And so far as you have His Spirit, you can do whatever He sends you to do.
I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose]
