But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned – 1 Corinthians 2:14
There’s a higher life; there’s a higher realm; it’s the realm of the Spirit. You were born into that realm when you were born again. So, you actually live in two worlds contemporaneously; you function in both of them. You recognize one through your physical senses, and you recognize the other through your spirit—your spiritual faculties.
The ministry of the Gospel brings spiritual realities into the natural world as men hear, understand and act on the message. However, there’re not so many people who think spiritually; they think “naturally” all the time even though they’re Christians, failing to realise that we belong in a spiritual kingdom. They function mostly by their natural faculties—the flesh; and they that are in the flesh can’t please God (Romans 8:8).
That’s the reason for the training of our spiritual senses through God’s Word and the Holy Spirit, so you can hear, see, and perceive the things of the Spirit. You can only understand the things of God with your spiritual faculties. The natural man can’t understand the things of God, because they’re spiritually discerned (1Corinthians 2:14).
We’re in a kingdom where sickness, defeat, poverty, and failure aren’t real. However, your spiritual faculties must be constantly trained through the Word of God so you can appropriate the realities of our spiritual Kingdom in your life.

Confession (Faith’s Proclamation)
I walk and live in the Spirit every day, with my spiritual antenna constantly in tune with God, because I’m not of this world. I’m Spirit-ruled, Spirit-controlled, and Spirit-dominated; therefore, I’m able to appropriate the realities and blessings of the heavenly Kingdom to which I belong, and in my personal life. Amen.
