“The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” (Proverbs 20:27)
“Belly” here is an expression for the innermost being. It means your heart or spirit: the core of your nature. The light of God is in your spirit, which is why after giving your life to Christ, you must consciously train and develop your spirit. Many are more concerned about what takes place in their souls or physical bodies, with little consideration for their spirit.
Though commendable, it’s not enough to train your mind and physical body alone; greater premium should be on educating your spirit. The highest potentials of the human nature are in the spirit. So you must consciously and deliberately study and meditate on the Word of God always, for your spirit to be enlightened; then you can bring out the best from within you.
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7)
Look inward, and live from inside out. Initiate prosperity and victory from within you, for they’re inherent in your spirit. God has deposited in your spirit everything you require for a life of glory and excellence. Search yourself; look within you and discover the treasures and potentials in you.
