Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23
Do you feel like your life is out of balance? Are you concentrating on one part of your life, but things are falling over in other areas? It is not surprising that God has made us in three parts. Each piece needs to function well for us to be able to be successful in life. In three short videos from Andrew Wommack explains how getting a healthy function of the body, soul, and spirit happens when we feed our spirit and learn to see and operate in the world as God's children. We read in Romans 8:14 that:-
"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God."
Before the spirit can lead us, we need to understand how God made us function in three parts; body, soul and spirit.
Andrew Wommack has put together three excellent animated videos that explain how the Soul, Body and Spirit function for us. At the end of the blog, there is a sermon by Robert Morris that teaches us why we should stay in the Word of God. It is imperative to read to understand.
By understanding your soul, body and spirit and how they interrelate, you will realise how important time in the Word is in understanding what it means and applying it to your everyday life.

Part 3: Spirit
We are in constant contact with our body and soul. For our spirit, we cannot feel it or touch it. Our spirit is totally different. In John:3:6 Jesus says, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." Therefore, our spirit operated differently, but it can also only be accessed in a supernatural way. God communicates to us through our spirit. Most importantly, the power of God flows through our spirit. In James 2:26 we read, "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." When our spirit is alive, our body com
