HAVE YOUR SENSES TRAINED
There is common sense and there is sanctified sense. Everybody has common sense, but not everyone has sanctified sense. Common sense will alert you not to drive against traffic or in the path of an oncoming truck, but God wants us as Christians to walk in a sanctified sense. He wants your senses trained so that you are thinking and operating spiritually.
A sanctified sense is ruled by the Spirit of God and does not relate to things from the physical standpoint alone. It sees things as they really are in the spirit and bases its reaction on it, rather than being carried away by the mere façade.
Our senses are physical, but we are spirits operating in the physical world. Everything physical has a spiritual dimension to it and we must train our senses to go beyond the physical to the spiritual and see something beyond the obvious. Train your ears to hear beyond the audible when people are talking.
You can train your senses to come to a place that it can discern what is good and what is evil by exercising yourself in the word of God, practising the word, living by the word, and soaking the word of God into yourself repeatedly.
Let your heart be sensitive to God’s word. Stop violating the word of God, or else it will make you unfit to perceive the leading of the Holy Spirit. Start practising the word and it will connect you to all the other leaders that God has positioned for your profiting. If you follow the word of God, you can never go astray.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, today I choose to allow my senses to be trained to respond to the voice of God every day in Jesus’ name. Amen
