SylviaListen to the blessing in Philemon 25 ."The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit." "How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live!" (Heb 12:9).

Listen to Zechariah 12:1. "The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundations of the earth... forms the spirit of man within him..." God said in Ezekiel 36:26, "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you."

Understand that your Creator, your heavenly Father, created and formed your spirit. The very essence of who you are was placed deep within your spirit. There you carry the DNA of your heavenly Father. Be blessed with a lifestyle and lifetime of discovering the character and nature of your Father and Christ in you, the hope of glory. In discovering who God is, you uncover and awaken your spirit to who you are in him. Be blessed with the good gift of God of an undivided heart, right desires, and a new spirit. Be blessed with singleness and tenderness of heart to obey God as one who is truly his (Eze 11:19, 18:31, 36:26).

Beloved child, you distinguish yourself from those of this world because of the excellent spirit, knowledge, and understanding your Father has placed within you (Dan 5:12, 6:3). It is the spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty, that gives you understanding (Job 32:8). Be blessed with wholeheartedness and loyalty to your Father in your spirit, so that all his good promises of blessings can be yours and you will have a full, rich spiritual inheritance (Num 14:24). Renew your spirit in the Lord (Eph 4:23). Be blessed with being an example to the others in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity (1 Tim 4:12 NKJV).

Be blessed with realizing your need for God, for he promises that the kingdom of heaven will be given to you (Mat 5:3). Be steadfast and fixed upon God (Ps 51:10).

Be blessed with the presence of the Holy Spirit who restores to you the joy of your salvation and makes you willing to live consistently in obedience to him and in harmony with him (Ps 51:12). Be blessed with commitment to guard your spirit to keep godly covenants with family members (Mal 2:15-16).

Be blessed with a spirit in whom there is no deceit (Ps 32:2). Totally commit your spirit to the God of truth (Ps. 31:5.) Be blessed with the inner unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight (1 Peter 3:4). Become strong in spirit, filled with wisdom and the grace of God (Luke 2:40 NKJV). You are blessed in the name of the Father of your spirit (Heb 12:9).
