"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:24 KJV)
There are two worlds in action at all times, one you see with the natural eye and one you don't see unless God's Spirit reveals it to you.
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God." (1 Corinthians 2:9-10 KJV)
The things you see are controlled by what you don't see with the natural eye. In order to have victory in the natural you must tap into the power of the Holy Spirit. He is the only person that can let you see Into the unseen Spirit world. In the Spirit world there is the Holy Spirit and the spirit of darkness. The Holy Spirit resides in the believer, He is the person that can reveal things to you that can change your life in the natural world. Our victory and blessings are seen when manifested in the world we see only after we've learned to walk in victory in the Spirit world. The Apostle Paul speaks often of both worlds, he tells us to "walk in the Spirit" and we won't fulfill the lust of the flesh. He makes it clear that we cannot win any of our battles in the flesh but only by understanding the power of the Holy Spirit. "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." (2 Corinthians 4:7 KJV). The power of God that lives in us is a treasure from God Himself for us to walk in on a daily basis!! "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."
(2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV) We are created in the image of God so we are a spirit that lives in a body that has a soul. (Our soul man is our thoughts, feelings, emotions, will, mind, our humanity, who we are in the world) If you are going to walk in the victory that is available for God's people you must make wise choices, get into the Word so the Word of God can get into you and pay more attention to your Spirit Man than your natural man. "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)" (2 Corinthians 10:3-4 KJV) Ask God to fill you with the Holy Ghost so you can see the Spirit world clearly thereby being able to understand how to win the battles you are fighting on a daily basis. Jesus Christ died on the cross, shed His blood to cleanse us so the Holy Spirit could live in us and empower us to walk in supernatural power. It is this supernatural power that we must have functioning on our behalf to experience the blessings of God in the natural world. God's power is the only thing that can break down the strong holds that are hindering the flow of blessings in our lives!!!
