The secret of the divine life is to learn how to live in the spirit realm, how to have one’s lamp filled with the oil of heaven. The only way to know God and the Lord Jesus Christ is through the spirit. God imparts His messages to your spirit.
Until your spirit gains the mastery over your senses, your faith will never be strong and vigorous. Faith is a product of your spirit, just as wisdom is a product of your spirit; faith is developed and wisdom is enriched by meditation in the Word of God. It comes by acting on the Word. Every time you act on the Word, faith becomes stronger.
