Be Sensitive To His Move ·
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
It’s possible to be in God’s presence and not know it. The Bible tells us how Jacob, on one occasion, only realized he’d been in God’s presence after a dream in which he saw the angels of God descending and ascending into heaven on a ladder. Then he said, "…Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not" (Genesis 28:16).
Acts 9 tells us how Saul of Tarsus kept up his violent threats against the disciples of Jesus and made havoc of the Church. While he and his companions were on the road to Damascus, a blinding flash of light suddenly dazed him, he fell to the ground and the Lord Jesus spoke out of Heaven to him in the Hebrew tongue.
In the twenty sixth chapter, as he narrated his conversion experience at his defence before King Agrippa, Paul said, "And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me…" (Acts 26:14). The Lord Jesus talked to Paul from Heaven in the Hebrew tongue, but those who were journeying with him heard a voice, the very Hebrew tongue they understood, but couldn’t comprehend the meaning of the words Jesus spoke. The reason is that God is a master communicator. He can talk to you without letting others know what He’s saying.
That’s why a Christian may tell his friend sitting right beside him, "God just spoke to me," and he may wonder: "But we are sitting so close to each other; how come I didn’t hear Him?" That’s because God is a Spirit; the Bible calls Him the Father of spirits (Hebrews 12:9). Therefore, when He speaks, it doesn’t matter what language He communicates in, He addresses His Word to your spirit and you hear Him. His Word is for those to whom He speaks; this is the reason you must train yourself to be sensitive to Him, so you’d always hear Him when He speaks.
Dear heavenly Father, I declare that I’m sensitive to the move of the Holy Spirit in my life. Today, my spirit is open to hear and receive your Word which is able to direct, guide and build me up, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
