SylviaListen to the blessing of the Lord in Timothy 4:22. "The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you." "Moses and Aaron fell facedown and cried out, 'O God, God of the spirits of all mankind...' " (Num 16:22).

The Lord who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundation of the earth forms the spirit of man. In His providence he watches over your spirit (Ps 35:15). Be blessed with the knowledge that God gave you life and shows you his unfailing love, and he preserves your life and times by his care (Job 10:12).

Beloved child, listen with your spirit to 1 Corinthians 15:45. "The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit." Be blessed, for the Lord Jesus has given you the glory that Father God gave him, so that you may be one with him as they are one (John 17:20-23). I bless you with spiritual fervor, that you may speak of the things of God and be diligent and enthusiastic in serving him, being devoted to him in spirit, soul, and body (Acts 18:25, Rom 12:11, 1 Cor 7:34).

"The word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joint and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart" (Heb 4:12). God's Word says that you are able to distinguish between the thoughts of your spirit and the attitudes of your soul. You are blessed to respond to situations and circumstances from the depths of your spirit led by his Spirit. Be humble, contrite, and repentant, so that you will be revived and renewed in heart and spirit by the Holy One, who inhabits eternity (Isa 57:15). When you are overwhelmed and your spirit grows faint, be assured that he knows the way you should go (Ps 142:3). When you call for help, the Father of your spirit hears you, because he is close to the brokenhearted and rescues those who are crushed in spirit (Ps 34:18).

Be blessed with the spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline given by God, not of timidity or fear (2 Tim 1:7). As your spirit is refreshed by others who are faithful to you, you can refresh others in their spirit (1 Cor 16:18, 2 Cor 7:13).

You are blessed to glorify God in your body and your spirit, which are His, because you are bought with a price (1 Cor 6:20 NKJV). Be blessed to pray and sing and praise God with your spirit (1 Cor 14:14-16). Exalt the Lord and rejoice in God your Savior with your spirit, as you celebrate his choosing you and recall all the great things he has done for you (Luke 1:46-49). Worship the Father in spirit and truth (John 4:23-24).

I bless you in the name of the God of the spirits of all mankind.
