SCRIPTURE: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:14.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Sensitivity to the leading of the Spirit is key to being led by the Spirit.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that being led by the Spirit is a mark of sonship in Christ. True sons of God are led by the Spirit of God.
It is very important to understand how the Spirit leads. Sensitivity to the leading of the Spirit is key to being led in the Spirit.
Let me give you examples: There are times you wake up in the morning and you don’t have a leading to eat. Food may be available but you just don’t feel like eating. The truth is, you do not eat just because food is ready; you eat because there is a need to eat.
When you slept the previous night, you did not plan to fast at all, but when you saw food, you just lost your appetite. In such a case, do not force yourself to eat by all means because food is on the table. Sensitivity directs that the Spirit is leading you to fast for that day or at least for some time.
You might also have planned a journey you wanted to embark on but you just lost your peace about it. Everything has been planned but you do not feel like going. Do not force yourself to go on that journey; listen to the Spirit of God.
Sensitivity is key to the leading of the Holy Spirit. People who are not spiritually sensitive would find it difficult to know how God leads.
My counsel to you today is to be sensitive to God’s instructions. Do not be in a hurry to do anything. Always try to know what God wants you to do per time.
Remember this: Sensitivity to the leading of the Spirit is key to being led in the Spirit.
- Go through today’s message again.
- Be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit. Do not force yourself to do anything you have lost your peace about.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit. Sharpen my spiritual perception and sensitivity, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
