TOPIC: WHY MAN IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ENTITY
Scripture: Psalm 139: 14. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! In continuation of what we started previously.
We did established that man is the most important
entity amongst God’s creation. And we gave the reason being his composition. And today we shall press further.
What are compositions of Man that makes him the most important entity[?
A. Man is a spirit (details of this in our previous meditation).
B. Man has a soul; the idea that man has a soul has made some school of taught to regards both spirit and soul as one! If that is true then man and animals are the same.
Obviously what differentiate man from animals is the spirit. The spirit of man made him to be different from animals that only have a soul without the spirit.
A brief description of the soul;
The soul comprises of the following:
I. The intellect; The ability to think in a logical way!all the our educational enlightenment is to develop the intellect
II. The will: This is the aspect that makes a choice of what you will do about a matter.
III. The mind: The mind is the most important part off a man. His success or failure, victory or defeat depends largely on what happens in his mind.
The mind also comprises of:
1. The emotion; this is the seat of feeling. You can feel loved, hated, cheated, hungry or even have a mood swings etc
2. The Sensibility/reasoning faculty: This is the aspect that helps to reason accurately.
3. The conscience: The judge that makes you aware of your decision. There are those who exists with a dead conscience and some with defiled conscience!
Now why I’m I going this far? It is for us to appreciate the fact that this entity called man is really complex in nature! This is why our anchor scripture say I am fearfully and wonderfully made!(PS.139:14).
Our behaviour is largely a matter of the soul realm! Fear, panicked attacked, worries breed in the soul realm. Hatred, love and all manners of feeling is born here. This explains why it is the greatest aspect of demonic attacks. People lost their minds when demons takes control of the mind completely.
Beloved, if you want to live a victorious Christian Life you must get victory in the soul realm.
For example having a Sound Mind will safe you from a lot of trouble in this world.
Why is it so?
The mind is the gateway between our physical body and the spirit! It is often the realm of most satanic manipulation. Information travel from our body via the mind into our spirit and back from our spirit to our body.
Therefore, if this mind is not sound, fear is inevitable! And if the control of it is lost insanity is inevitable.
Fear breed in a mind that is not sound! Hence God has to give us a sound mind to be able to handle fear. How sound your mind is a function of:
A. your relationship with God.
B. How much of God’s word is present in your spirit determine how sound your mind fully becomes!
Job 22: 21 . _Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. 22. Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart._
Proverbs 4: 20. My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
How do we care for the soul ?
