SHARPEN YOUR SENSES
(Learn To Train Your Spiritual Faculties)
TO THE BIBLE: 1 Corinthians 2:14
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
“Thank you Lord, for all these glorious things you’ve shown me today,” Gabriel concluded as he prayed before getting ready for the day.
“Sorry Gabe, but what exactly did God show you?” his brother Nathan asked. “I’ve been watching you pray, just curious to know what you saw.”
“Well, while studying my Bible and praying, I saw with my spirit all the wonderful things that belong to me; that’s what I was thanking the Lord for,” Gabriel replied.
“Hmmm, I guess that’s something I need training on,” Nathan mused.
The Gospel shows us the spiritual realities and truths of God’s Kingdom as we hear, understand, and act on the message. However, there aren’t so many people who think spiritually; they think “naturally” all the time even though they’re Christians, failing to realise that we belong in a spiritual kingdom. They function mostly by their natural faculties—the flesh, but we know that they that are in the flesh can’t please God! (Romans 8:8).
That’s the reason for the training of our spiritual senses through God’s Word and the Holy Spirit, so you can hear, see, and perceive the things of the Spirit. You can only understand the things of God with your spiritual faculties. The natural man can’t understand the things of God, because they’re spiritually discerned.
We’re in a kingdom where sickness, defeat, poverty, and failure aren’t real. However, your spiritual faculties must be constantly trained through the Word of God so you can appropriate the realities of our spiritual Kingdom in your life.
I walk and live in the Spirit every day, with my spiritual antenna constantly in tune with God, because I’m not of this world. I’m Spirit-ruled, Spirit-controlled, and Spirit-dominated; therefore, I’m able to appropriate the realities and blessings of the heavenly Kingdom to which I belong, and in my personal life. Amen.
