God is a Spirit and if you are to understand Him and communicate with Him you must "Walk in the Spirit"! We, the born again, are the "Temples of the Holy Ghost", the Spirit of God abides within us. (1 Cor. 3:16) God has a purpose for all His children but if we are to understand that purpose we must communicate with Him in the Spirit world. The Word of God has many things written in it that we can easily read and understand much of what God has prepared for His people. However, when we begin to "Walk in the Spirit" we really begin to get a full revelation of all the things God has for us.
"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. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; THAT WE MIGHT KNOW the things that are FREELY GIVEN to us of God."(1 Corinthians 2:9-12 KJV)
Jude tells us we need to; "But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost," (Jude 1:20 KJV)
The only way we can protect ourselves from the "cares of this world" is to see what God reveals to us by His Spirit. We must train our Spirit to see things from God's perspective or the system we live in will crush us with its oppression!! "Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty", freedom to live, breathe, worship and have peace in a troubled world!! If you are weighted down with the "cares of this world", "Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up." (James 4:10 KJV) In that moment He will lift you up above the burdens of this world!!
