God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth – John 4:24
Your body isn’t you; it’s your house, the home of your spirit. For example, your physical eyes can’t see by themselves; they’re windows through which your spirit sees the world around you. Romans 12:1 says “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” If your life were comprised of your body only, how would you be able to present your body to God? This lets you know there’s more to you than your physical body; you’re a spirit being; the “real you” is a spirit.
When a man is born again, it’s not his mind or body that’s born again; it’s his spirit. That’s where the life of God resides. When you received the Holy Spirit, He mingled with your spirit and became one with your spirit, in an inseparable union: “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17). Now you can better understand why your spirit really matters to God.
It’s important to learn how to function from your spirit, and the way to do this is to keep your focus on the Word of God, refusing to be moved by the dictates of your physical senses. For example, the doctors may have diagnosed that there’s something wrong in your body. Even so, remember that your body isn’t you. So, you can deal with that anomaly in your body by releasing healing and health from your spirit. The Bible says, a good man, out of the good treasures of his heart (spirit) brings forth good things (Luke 6:45).
Everything good that you could ever desire in life, is domiciled in your spirit; bring it forth from within you. Train your spirit with the Word. The Word of God reveals all the beautiful things God has deposited in your spirit, such as divine health, prosperity, victory, success, excellence, and the life of dominion. Stir them from within.

Dear Father, I thank you for the higher life, which I live in Christ. I no longer live from the ordinary plane. I think God’s thoughts, having been given the mind-set of the righteous, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
