Today, I want to share a few thoughts on how you can develop a sensitive spirit. This article is not for everyone but if you’re truly focused on developing your spirit man this article is for you.
Firstly, you need to understand the importance of actively involving the Holy Spirit in your life. One of the ways you do this is by asking Him to fill you. This is evident through speaking in a heavenly language which is for personal edification.
“But I say, walk habitually in the [Holy] Spirit [seek Him and be responsive to His guidance], and then you will certainly not carry out the desire of the sinful nature [which responds impulsively without regard for God and His precepts]. For the sinful nature has its desire which is opposed to the Spirit, and the [desire of the] Spirit opposes the sinful nature; for these [two, the sinful nature and the Spirit] are in direct opposition to each other [continually in conflict], so that you [as believers] do not [always] do whatever [good things] you want to do.”
Galatians 5:16-17 AMP
Learn to Walk
If you’re going to be sensitive you have to understand the importance of patience and knowing that it’s a journey. God desires to speak to each one of us, but developing that habit of walking in intimacy is a key. Notice, that when you walk, each step is consistent with each other. You grow by consistency and by daily decisions. When we make the decision to walk with God, it pleases him and His work of changing our being into the image of his son begins. Don’t set your expectations on becoming an overnight success in hearing God, because in a generation of noise the closer you be with him the clear he will sound to you
Learn to Decide
You have the potential to hear God and this desire and longing to hear him does something in your spirit. Are you really wanting to hear the voice of God? As you renew your mind daily you the voice of God becomes very natural to you, but it’s a process. Look at the passage above it writes “seek him and be responsive to his guidance”. I want to highlight “responsiveness to his guidance” Have you been in a situation where you know what you should do but you don’t do it? That’s a clear example of not being responsive. This is my practical advice to you. Next time you hear the voice of guidance, listen to it IMMEDIATELY. The longer it takes you to respond the quieter the voice gets and the weaker your ability to respond to that voice becomes.
Practical tip: You have less than 1 second to decide whether you’ll respond to that voice in your head or not.
