3 Keys to a Healthy Spirit
We all want a healthy spirit so here are the three keys to having one:
The Word of God: The word of God is food for our spirit man. Consider the verses from Psalm 119:
- 9: How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.
- 50 For Your word has given me life.
- 103 How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
- 130 The entrance of Your words gives light;
Prayer: Prayer keeps us in communication with God. Prayer opens the channels/doors to love, power, and life which are so important for a healthy spirit. It is in prayer that our direct relationship with God is established. It is in prayer that we can speak to God about what is in our heart, and He speaks to us about what is in His heart.
Worship: Worship is not as much about communication as it is about giving thanks and praise to God. Furthermore, it is especially focused on being in the presence of God. Worship is when you close your mind and thoughts and connect with God on a deeper and intimate level spiritually as well as emotionally. Worship is extremely important for a healthy spirit.
