PROGRAMMING YOUR SPIRIT
Romans 10:17 (NKJV) "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God".
God has programmed your mind to step aside, or shut down during an emergency. The spirit then takes over and controls the mind through power coming from some other source. Many have filled their spirit with trivia, and can quote large amounts of data, but are unable to cope with an emergency. You are to make a choice to fill your spirit before the emergency arrives. The best choice is to fill your spirit with the promises of God. These will be able to control your mind during a time of trouble.
There is no divine faith in the human mind or body. Itís planted and grows in the spirit, because itís a gift from God. God increases His faith in you as you study and believe His Word. Believing comes from the mind, whereas divine faith must be in your spirit. Take time every day to increase your divine faith by reading the Word.
The adage "you are what you eat" in the physical realm, has a direct parallel in the spiritual. If you ingest the TV and books, etc., and eat no Word, "you are what you eat", but if the Word is your diet - then His strength will be yours.
