Spirit, Soul and Body

Greetings. My Friends;
As you probably know by now, we are all a combination of spirit, soul, and body. Your spirit is made in the image of the Creator. To a person that is saved, your spirit is one with God, and He is one with you. Your spirit is the part of you that was saved through your salvation. It has perfect faith, and communicates with God. Your spirit operates in the spiritual world to carry out what you speak. When you were saved, you also received the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit acts through your spirit, he even prays through your spirit.
Your soul is generally considered to be your mind. Your mind ideally works together with your spirit to control your body. Your spirit has perfect faith, but your soul sometimes has a hard time. For instance, in your spirit you believe for something like healing of a sore throat, but your mind may not be so sure. Make a conscious effort to train your mind to keep saying aloud the result, not the problem. Talking about the problem is complaining and doubt, and will probably result in no healing.
The body is controlled by the brain, or as we call it the soul. If your brain is not controlled by your spirit, the body may do all sorts of sinful things. If the body is in charge, expect the worst. Name a sin and the body will do it. If you are truly saved, the body will not act in a sinful way as a regular practice.
The soul can be controlled, and therefore the body will be controlled. Make up your mind to get in the Word every day. If you have been baptized in the Holy Spirit, pray in tongues every day. Talk to the Lord every chance you get. Even something as simple as, Lord, I can sure use Your help with this.
One last thing. Don't make the mistake of always expecting to feel something. Faith is believing something as if it already happened. Hebrews 11:1, "now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
So remember, when you say something out loud, your spirit puts your words into action in the spirit world and you will have what you say. Guard, what comes out of your mouth.
God bless you and remember,
Jesus loves you.
Prayer of Salvation;

"Oh God in heaven, I believe with all my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed, and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen."
