SENSITIVITY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Jul 26, 2021

One of the practices that will enrich your time of fellowship with the Master is being sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

Sensitivity to the Holy Spirit shifts your fellowship and prayer moments to another level. When you become aware, He draws you deeper into an intense atmosphere of His presence!.

The tabernacle in the old testament had the Outer Court, the Inner Court, and the Holy of Holies. The dimensions of God’s presence in each of these chambers were different. It was in the Holy of Holies that the High Priest was able to contact the glory of God.

God desires us to experience more of Him in the realm of our souls and bodies much as the fullness of Him dwells in our spirits.

The devil can never stop God from doing anything in your life. The only person who can limit God and His flow in your life is you.

Psalms 78:41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.

Imagine God was visibly and tangibly present in the wilderness by the pillar of fire by night but He was limited.

The presence of God can be in a place, but we limit Him depending on our degree of yieldedness to His working!.

Some of the things that hinder us from perceiving His intense presence in the realm of our mindset are; Our mindset, our degree of yieldedness, and openness to the Spirit of God to do what He wills!.

We need to shed off anything that is a barrier to the flow of the Holy Spirit that hinders Him from doing as He wills, for example;

Fear.
Fear is inverted faith. It is a lack of faith because the opposite of fear is faith.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and a sound mind.

Fear grips a person’s mind until they stop having a sound mind. A sound mind reasons according to the word of God, and thinks or imagines according to the Spirit and voice of God!.

Numbers 13:27-28… “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit…Nevertheless, the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover, we saw the descendants of Anak there. 29

Fear gripped their souls and minds. We need to deal with fear. Don’t let it overshadow your life!.

Unbelief.
Hebrews 3:19 So we see that they could not enter in because of their unbelief.

Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to who is the arm of the LORD revealed?

Let’s make up our minds to believe the report of the Lord!.

Don’t allow unbelief to have an inroad in your faith life. Get rid of it as soon as possible and dismiss every thought of unbelief. Also, deal with fear as soon as you sense its grip.

The first spirit that attacked man was fear. They hid from God!.

They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden….Genesis 3:8-10

Fear will make you freeze on the help you need in your life. Don’t allow it to make you lose the blessing of your life.

Familiarity
The spirit of familiarity causes men to lose or become less sensitive to the presence of God!. Always acknowledge His presence during your private fellowship when He comes. Soon you will be able to sense a higher degree of His presence!.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.!
