The word “perceive”, physically speaking, can apply to your sight. But we are not dealing with physical perception. In Acts 14:8-10, that man’s faith would have gone unnoticed if Paul had not perceived in his spirit and he would have left that meeting still crippled but Paul perceived and spoke the word that launched him unto his feet. To perceive is as if you enter into a room and somebody is hiding at the back of the door, but after some time, you begin to sense that somebody is there with you.
The best way to deal with the spirit of lies is through perception. In Acts 5, Ananias sold a parcel of land and kept the remaining money. Sometimes when you perceive some things in the spirit, you will need to stir it up until you hit a gift of the word of knowledge to give full details. Perception is not as detailed as a word of knowledge. It is just your spirit giving you warning signals so you can prepare for things ahead. You don’t have to suffer accidents if you will just follow up on your perception and pray through on it. People suffer losses when they ignore divine signals.
Some people say “we are wiser after the event”, but that is not God’s intention for a child of God. The spirit inside you is to make you wiser before the event so you can handle it to the glory of God and for your good. If you pick up a perception, follow it up and do something about it. It is not a matter of being suspicious but rather having a holy perception about things.
PRAYER: Lord, I will not be dull of divine perception. The eyes of my understanding are opened in Jesus name. Amen!
