Have you ever felt Unspiritual

Have you ever woke up feeling so unspiritual? Or have you ever had an unspiritual week?  Are you struggling to pray or breakthrough into feeling more spiritual? Just how much more spiritual do you want to feel before you feel spiritual? These are the questions that bombarded my soul as I woke up this morning feeling, well- ‘unspiritual!’ 

I heard the Lord say, 

‘Tomi, just be glad that spiritual is not sensual! In fact 1Corinthians 2:9-11 says: 

"eye hasn’t seen, ear hasn’t heard neither has been revealed to the heart, what God has prepared for those that love Him.”

In other words nothing spiritual makes sense! At least not to your natural senses.  Well God, I just don’t pray as much as I used to.  I bickered back to God in protest! His response,

“Prayer doesn’t make you spiritual, it makes you effective!”

“So just what is spirit,” I requested! 

Spirit is where your mind is! 

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.

Romans 8:5

So simple, yet so profound. I realised that my habitation is nothing short of my meditation.  So I cannot feel less spiritual but I can certainly think less spiritual.  When I do this, I am living in the flesh! 

As we draw closer to God in this season, let us redefine what it means to be spiritual or rather, let us return back to the original definition.  Spirituality is not activity- not prayer, not fasting, not worshiping for you can do all these things and yet not in the spirit.  Spirituality is where you set your mind!
