We must live by our born again spirit, an awakened spirit ruled by the Holy Spirit, and not by our mind and emotions. But how do we do this?
As spiritual hunger grows, causing us to earnestly seek God in the Word and in prayer, our spirits break the shackles of the flesh and of the soul (the mind and emotions).
We begin to live with an awakened spirit that lays hold on all the “exceeding great and
precious promises” (2 Peter 1:4) of God. That, in turn, brings us into the realization of the power and authority that we actually have in Him. We begin to live on high!
