Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 23rd – The Light In Your Spirit

(The Lord Guides You From Within Your Spirit)

TO THE BIBLE: Proverbs 20:27 NASB
“The spirit of a person is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the innermost parts of his being.”

A clear and fundamental truth revealed in the Word of God is that man is primarily a spirit being; he’s not a mind or a physical body. God enlightens him primarily through his spirit.

Many philosophers have theorised that man’s enlightenment should be only through his mind, and they’re wrong. Empiricist philosophy teaches that something is unreal except observable by the five senses.
Therefore, by limiting knowledge to man’s senses, empiricism denounces belief, because believing has to do with things your senses can’t perceive or prove.

Man, however, has the capacity to believe. Romans 10:10 says, “For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Man believes with his heart or spirit, not his mind. This was the missing link for the philosophers, who had no idea that the spirit of man is where the light of God shines for him to receive spiritual enlightenment.

Romans 4:3 says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” He believed the unseen with his spirit, not with his mind because only the spirit can receive spiritual information and insights from God.

The divine life you have in Christ is a life beyond the ordinary level of perception; it’s life beyond the comprehension of man’s mentality.
