Spirit-to-Spirit Blessings: Blessing Your Spirit with the Fruit of the Holy Spirit

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

 

We are made of spirit, soul and body. Our spirit is specifically listed first in this passage of First Thessalonians, as it is our spirit that is to have dominion and authority over our soul and body. Much of our culture places an emphasis on the soul that is made of our mind, will and emotions and the nurturing of our spirit is often neglected.

The format of the blessings includes calling your spirit to attention, legitimizing your spirit, instruction and teaching on the Fruit of the Holy Spirit and concluded with a blessing based on the Fruit of the Holy Spirit.

From time to time, I’ll post Spirit-to-Spirit Blessings. The purpose of these blessings is to strengthen your spirit with the Fruit of the Holy Spirit in order to be effective in warfare against the enemy.
