I am so excited to share with you what the Holy Spirit shared with me concerning the soul. After receiving this revelation, I have been able to walk in a greater measure of the scripture 3 John 2.
Again, let’s take a look at this wonderful scripture:
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
3 John 2
Let us continue with the last part of this verse. “Just as your soul prospers” is the determining factor of prospering and being in health. If your soul is prospering, you will prosper in life and in health. In the last blog we found that the soul is the mind, will, and emotions of a person. In other words, when your mind, will, and emotions are prospering in the things of God, meditating on the things of God, and walking in the things of God you will prosper in health and wealth.
While I was meditating on the soul prospering, I heard the Holy Spirit say to me, “the soul does not have an identity of his own.” The Spirit does. His identity is in God. The Body does - his identity is in the flesh. But, the soul will take on the identity of either the Spirit or the flesh. It’s almost like the soul is like a chameleon. Just as a chameleon takes on the color of whatever leaf or tree that it is sitting on, so will the soul. He will take on whatever he is fed more. He does not have his own identity, so he will take on the identity of the spirit or the flesh. It’s like the soul is always in the middle trying to decide which direction he should yield to.
This was an exciting revelation to me! This meant that I have the ability to change the identity of my soul. My mind, my will, and my emotions can be changed; and the more I focus on the “soul’s identity” during situations in life, in the very instant that something occurs, the more successful my walk in the spirit will be!
Let us use the Chameleon as an example again, my soul, the Chameleon, can “walk over to the leaf” of the spirit and take on that identity or characteristics of the spirit. Or, he can “walk over to the leaf” of the flesh and take on the identity or characteristics of the flesh.
I can either take on the identity of the Spirit, which is God, (and always will be God) or I can take on the identity of the flesh. When the soul and the spirit work together, it creates a “chameleon” that looks and acts like God’s nature - bringing more peace, joy, and understanding to our lives. When the soul and the flesh work together, it creates a “chameleon” that looks like the world - bringing fear, worry, and lack of direction to our lives. So, you choose, Champions. Which “chameleon” will your soul be? The spirit or the flesh? Remember, the word says that if your soul prospers, your life and health will prosper. Choose, the right “leaf” today!
I would like to pray a prayer over our Champion partners and friends. I pray, “Lord, ‘that daily, as our Champion partners and friends walk out their lives in You, that they will have an awareness of You and Your call upon their lives and as they continue to go forth in Your word, that they will change the identity of their soul to match Your spirit, and thus, they are becoming more like You (God) daily. I thank you, Lord, for each one of our partners and friends; for they are a blessing to us and to the body of Christ. I believe, with all my heart, that they will operate in 3 John 2 in a greater measure than ever before! I pray for Your exceedingly abundant blessings to be upon their lives as their soul prosper in You. In Jesus Name, I pray this. Amen.”
