How Sensitive are you?

Written by

Some weeks ago, I was on a ‘bike’ with the headlight in broad daylight ON, and the rider and I didn’t know. Surprisingly, we had a lot of persons, and no one called our attention to it.

We kept moving happily, not until someone eventually motioned to us that the headlight was on. The driver thanked him and turned it off.

Just then, the Holy Spirit said to me, “You didn’t know that the headlight was on because you are on the vehicle and no signal to help you see such that someone has to draw your attention to it so that you can fix it.” But He didn’t end there. 

I realized that when it comes to spiritual sensitivity and alertness, they are three categories of people:

1. Those who can’t see for themselves and do not get any signal (inner voice or witness) and so they need the right kind of people around to help them do the right things because they can’t see their wrongs. Their signals are either low or damaged, and so it becomes their choice to fix it or leave it damaged.

2. Those that can’t see but have signals that may not be clear to build on and you see these kinds of people are most time times difficult to help because they believe so much in what they feel, but we must know that it’s not all about feelings.

3. Those that can hear and see clearly. Their level of sensitivity is high, and so they see and hear before taking any step, and as such, they are quick to escape from evil, and notwithstanding, they try hard to stay safe and on guard.

One similar factor of them all is that they all have the will of choice. They choose to adhere to what they’ve heard or seen.

Some machines (vessel) can be magnificent outside but lack signals (sensitivity), while some lack the right people to help them out when needed. In all things, let’s strive to be better because there is more, we’ve seen or heard. Choose to obey His Voice and signals and let Him have full expressions in you.

    Wonderful write up. All you have written down via the holy Spirit is very correct. The holy Spirit is not just want you feel, you need to be sensitive enough to recognise that.
    When recognized that is when you can relate it with the body and soul, then comes the feeling.
    God bless you, I’m bless by this.
