Keys to the Soul“God, Fix My Soul”

Christian Bible Teaching

I have heard several preachers say with certainty that the soul is the mind, the will, and the emotions.  It may be in the Bible, but I don’t know of the human soul being defined so specifically.  Maybe this definition of the soul is from godly revelation or maybe through psychological studies.  Either way, I will accept the definition that the soul is made up of our mind, will and emotions.

A person very dear to me prayed, “God, fix my soul”.  I thought this was very profound.  Think about it!  “God, fix my soul!”

God, fix the way I think. (mind)

God, fix the way I respond to how I think. (emotions)

God, fix my willingness (will) to adjust or to completely change the way I think (mind) and the way I respond to how I think. (emotions)

“God, fix my soul,” is a powerful prayer to pray to release one from satan’s grip of sickness and oppression and to usher in God’s healing presence.

“God, fix my soul,” is the cry of a humble person ready for a mighty move of God!

“God, fix my soul, says, “I’m ready for your will God, not my own.”

“God, fix my soul, says, “I am ready to hear your (God’s) voice.”

“God, fix my soul,” says, “I will allow You (God) to examine my thinking and replace any falsehood with your Truth.”

The Truth of God is the way God thinks and acts according to His (God’s) standards, not our own human standards.

Isaiah 55:9
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Conforming our soul (mind, will and emotions) brings peace that passes all understanding and joy unspeakable in the midst of our hectic lives.

Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 1:8
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.

No, conforming our minds, will and emotions does not mean brain washing.  It does mean standing still in faith when others are running scared.

It does mean being obedient with what God has given by giving back a tithe (tenth) of time, talents and finances and giving offerings over and above the tithe.  This is not for the purpose of buying God’s favor.  It is for the purpose of trusting God with everything.  Our obedience allows God to bless us.  When we give with the correct motives, our obedience is then celebrated by God and He does more on our behalf than we can ever think or image.

Ephesians 3:20
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

As we allow the convicting, small, still voice of the Holy Spirit to bring something to our soul that quietly nudges…..

“You should have ____________________” (fill in the blank)

Or

“You should not have ________________________” (fill in the blank)

For example, those Holy Spirit nudges might sound like:

“You should make that right—forgiveness, repentance.”  (mind, will and emotions)

“You should have reacted differently.”  (mind, will and emotions)

“You should have/should not have done that.”  (mind, will and emotions)

Then, we examine the nudge from the Holy Spirit.  It is our choice to adjust or to change our soul with the help of the Holy Spirit.

It’s our choice to adjust or change our thinking.

It’s our choice to adjust or change our will.

It’s our choice to adjust or change our emotions.

I ask myself these questions:

Am I willing to allow God to exercise His perfect will in my life or will I hinder His perfect plan?

Will I allow God to crush false doctrine and replace it with His truths?

Am I in the process of getting into position to learn what God’s will is for me?

Will I allow God’s will to supersede my will and will I make uncomfortable choices because I know I have heard His voice and know what He wants me to do?

Am I still, standing in faith and have I submitted my soul to be fixed?

I agree with my friend’s prayer, “Oh, God, fix my soul!”
