I have looked through my journey and focused on the two things that God told me to master when I started ministry; how to live by faith and how to be led by the Holy Ghost. God didn’t give you your mind to lead your spirit. God’s plan is that your spirit receives direction, your mind processes it, and your body executes it.
Hab 2:1-3; Running is the action of your body, making it plain is the action of your soul, receiving the vision is the action of your spirit. Seeing what he will say is a spiritual act. Don’t start running until you see something. Let every physical action of your ministry be the end product of something you receive in the spirit. Let everything you are doing be traceable to a divine direction. The following are the ways to enhancing your sensitivity to the Holy Spirit;
1. Keep your conscience pure. Protect your conscience. When your conscience argues about something, stop and correct it. An unbeliever can’t trust his conscience but a believer must trust his conscience. When you got born again your conscience was cleansed.
2. Spend time in intimacy with God. Practice the Principle of one. One hour in a day, stay quiet before the lord. One day in a week, set it apart between you and the Lord. You don’t have to be off work, but you should be off distraction. You should keep God in your emotions and in your thoughts. You may be at work as a nurse, doctor, banker but your thought should turn often to the Lord. For one weekend in a month without TV or carnal activities, spend the bulk of your time with the things of God. One week in a year. It makes you a solid Christian.
3. Increase your confession of the word of God. Learn to work with the words of your mouth. Your words affect your spirit. Like a control knob affect an Air Conditioner. The words of your mouth turn your spirit either towards evil or towards good. When you say, “I don’t know what to do”, your spirit begins to turn towards confusion. But when you declare the word of God, your spirit begins to find ways to accomplish the words of your mouth. You must begin to understand the effect of your words on your spirit man as a believer. If you find yourself speaking something negative, stop and cancel it immediately. Hold yourself accountable; find someone that will help you walk in accountability to the words you are speaking. Be careful of speaking under negative passion; in anger or frustration. The words of your mouth sow the seeds of faith in your heart and stirs up the gift of God in your spirit.
PRAYER: Lord, I connect myself to the tools of divine sensitivity to your leading in Jesus’ name. Amen.
