Reconstruction is a very necessary part of fulfilling the God-purpose in our lives.
At the point of getting saved or being born again, Jesus comes into our lives and takes up residence into our spirit man. The old order and way of thinking must change. When we think about reconstructing something, we get the picture of an already present structure- let’s take for example a house that has been abandoned. It may look like a house, but because of neglect or lack of permanent occupants, there may be cracks and holes that developed, there may be rodents and water leaks that leave stains on the floor and walls.
The good news is that someone came along, saw the house, thought to themselves that there is potential for this house and that, it can become livable again. That person did not see the present state but chose to look at what could be.
My friends, our bodies are the house; our soul is the inside of the house; and our spirit is where the Holy Spirit takes up residence. Jesus came along and saw what we could be like if he was to move into our lives. He saw the potential of us becoming clean and healthy once he moved into our spirits, and he also brought with him every single tool and resource necessary for us to clean up the rest of our house (soul).
In reality, the true source of many of our problems as believers is the fact that we are putting on pretty coats of paint on the outside, trying to convince everyone else that we have it all together. Our thought life is so powerful that it could decide our present disposition in life and also determine the direction of our future. Pondering the power of our thought life should cause us to want to reconstruct our souls. We all have a soul, but it is not enough to have a soul; as believers we should desire a prosperous soul, after all, the bible tells us that we are what we think upon, ” For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7) Amp and there is only one thing that can truly reconstruct the thought life and that is the word of God!
Power Thought: I am made in the image of God and I consist of spirit, soul, and body.
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
Romans 5:15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.
