Sensing and seeing God

18 January 2024 ‘But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit.’ 1 Corinthians 2:10 NKJV

The Bible says, ‘“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit’ (vv. 9-10 NKJV). Our five senses are limited, so the Holy Spirit compensates for them by enabling us to realise things we can’t perceive with our five senses. Think of Him as a sixth sense. That sense must be cultivated, matured, and fine-tuned. And that can only happen when we spend time meditating in the Scriptures and sitting with God in prayer. Until we’re awakened by the Holy Spirit, we’re unaware of our need for God, of the spiritual warfare that’s happening all around us, and of what God’s doing all around us. One night Jacob had a dream where God appeared to him and said, ‘I am with you and will keep you wherever you go’ (Genesis 28:15 NKJV). When he woke up the next morning, Jacob said, ‘Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it…This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!’ (Genesis 28:16-17 NKJV). Jacob went to sleep and woke up in the same place, but he woke up a different person. After his wake-up call, Jacob saw God everywhere he looked. Today, ask God for spiritual inspiration. Pray, ‘Father, show me what You want me to see, teach me what You want me to know, lead me step-by-step in the path of Your perfect will.’ That’s a prayer God will love to answer!
