***Wheeling Her Spirit Forward***


Think "cartwheels." Wheeling herself forward each day.

She could not be stopped. She just kept moving forward, just like a car without brakes, or like a ship without a rudder, her wheels kept moving. Her spirit was in her wheels. As long as her wheels were moving, her spirit was moving, and hence her flesh had no choice but to obey her spirit. As long as her spirit was in motion, her flesh was also in motion. She did not give her flesh any chance to make her weak. Have you ever seen someone who cannot be killed? Have you ever experienced the power of someone who cannot die? Their power is in their SPIRIT, and their spirit is in their wheels. You can kill their flesh, but you cannot kill their spirit. Think about it!

This morning, I studied the book of Ezekiel chapter 1 where he described a vision he had. He spoke about four living creatures, with each face having four different sides: a lion, an ox, an eagle, and a man. These four living creatures had wings, but their wings were all joined together. Made me conclude that they had a unifying force.

As these four creatures flew in the sky, Ezekiel saw in his vision that there were 'wheels' that followed them everywhere they went (verse 19). If the creatures flew in a vertical direction, the wheels followed them in a vertical direction. And if the creatures flew in a horizontal direction, the wheels followed them in a horizontal direction as well. But there was one very important thing I noticed in verse 20: it states that these living creatures went wherever the SPIRIT of God went, and it also said that the wheels followed them wherever they went. Then interestingly, it said that the SPIRIT of the living creatures were in their wheels.


I paused after I read this, and immediately I began to think that our spirits are not part of our flesh. Our spirits can be likened to a wheel that is in constant motion. Even if our flesh gets weak, our spirit does not get weak...it keeps moving on and on, turning in a motion just as a cartwheel turns. That's how our spirits should be, especially as children of God. Nothing should be able to take us down. Wherever the spirit of God goes, our own spirits must follow. And wherever our spirits go, our flesh must follow because our spirit must control our flesh.

Our strength comes from our spirit and not our flesh. We are spirits first before flesh, and hence we must know how to command our flesh to obey our spirits. Our spirits can place us in constant motion, and through our spirits we can 'wheel ourselves forward.'

***Can you let your spirit wheel you forward today?***

The word of God always reveals new things everytime a passage is read. I must admit I have not understood it that way, but what a word. We thank God for His many revelations.

Uzo said...

And that is why it is said that the mind(spirit) is strong but the flesh is weak. Our spirits must drive all our actions...

Love the insight you gave here

Jenny, I was down like totally, I was completely broken about 3 hours ago, I knew I needed inspiration I needed God to guide me forward, I was soooo close to giving up like you wouldn't believe.
I turned on my computer and came to your blog. THANK YOU! My spirit CANNOT be killed, its giving me the strength I need to move forward, to go on to WORK, the end is not near for me.

THANKS BABE

Jaycee said...

@ everyone...I feel exactly the same way...

Thank You Jesus...

@ Mamarita, God can SEE...His Name is "EL ROI," which means 'The God who SEES'...He can see what you're going through, and He has the power to do what you're waiting for...

but mamarita, the Word says, "those who wait on the Lord shall mount on wings as eagles..."...if u wait just a lil bit longer, it will soon be UR time to FLY...

Good read...you mentioned letting the spirit lead you..
The way to following God's steps is through ensuring the mind is more connected to the spirit than the body.
Why is this?
An untrained spirit is always moving ahead the physical body. When the spirit is trained with God, a Godly understanding is inherited and you live your life in accordance with the spirit, rather than the body; therefore, you are able to live life ahead of manifestations, and can consequently live a God-ordained lifestyle.
