So you may wonder, how connected are we to God? The answer is your everything is!
You are made up of Body and Spirit. When you die, your body dies but your spirit is removed from your body and stays alive. You have a soul made up of Will, Mind, and Emotion.
Your Spirit feeds on spirit food (the Bible, God's Word), which produces a spiritual force that is called Faith.
Your mind feeds on the Word of God as intellectual food and produces an intellectual force called Will Power or Power of the Will. A physical man eats physical food that produces physical strength or a physical force.
Jesus said that those who are of the spirit are Spirit, and those who are of the flesh are flesh (or satan's - because satan rules this world)
God is a spirit and those who worship Him do so in Spirit and in Truth. Therefore, we contact God in our Spirit and not our mind. He is not in our mind, He influences our minds but He is in your spirit. Your mind is in your Spirit but so is God. The Bible says we have to renew our minds according to the Word.
Ephesians 1:16-20 and 2:14
Till my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
