The writer of the Book of Proverbs said that the spirit of man is the candle (lamp) of the Lord (Prov. 20:27). That means that God will enlighten and guide us through our spirits.Too often, however, we seek guidance every other way except the way God said it was going to come. We judge by our physical senses, but nowhere does God say He will guide us by our senses. Or, we often look at things from a mental standpoint. But God said, “the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, ” which means that He will guide us through our spirits. Man is a spirit being. He has a soul, and he lives in a physical body. But he is a spirit being because he is made in the likeness of God. Jesus said that God is a Spirit.
