Topic: Be Spiritually Sensitive
To live wisely, you must be sensitive. Spiritual sensitivity is the ability to understand the voice of God through your spirit man. It is a sign you have encountered the wisdom of God and have the ability to discern spiritual issues like where to go and the direction to follow without relying on your five senses. Satan is busy moving up and down; setting traps to destroy people; so, you must be very sensitive to avoid his tricks.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: –1 Peter 5:8.
So many believers have walked into destruction for lack of sensitivity. When a believer is spiritually dead, the tendency for him/her to step into danger is very high.
Spiritual sensitivity is an asset you must possess as a believer. Before you embark on any journey, take time to ask God and listen to what He will say to your spirit man. Always engage the help of the Holy Spirit for divine guidance and He will reveal the outcome of the journey to you.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come – John 16:13.
One of the ways to hear from God is by praying in the Holy Ghost- Jude 1:20.
For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries – 1 Cor.14:2.
Spiritual sensitivity can also be sharpened through fasting. Every time you fast, your spiritual antenna becomes very sharp to detect things ahead of time. You hear God clearly and you receive spiritual illumination that reveals hidden things to you.
As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them – Acts 13:2.
Worship in the early hours of the morning is another means through which you can hear from God.
Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel.30 And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard -Isaiah 30:29-30a.
You can also sharpen your spiritual antenna by constantly feeding on God’s word.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path -Psalm 119:105.
When you study God’s word, He gives you guidance on what to do, where to go and how to do things. I pray that God opens your eyes to see, ears to hear and your heart to understand His voice in the name of Jesus Christ – Amen!!!
God bless you.
