In 1 Corinthians 2:12-13 the Apostle Paul wrote: “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”

A spiritual person is someone who sees, hears and knows what God is doing in the spirit realm, and is able replicate it in the physical. New believers start out as babies in the understanding of spiritual things, and must learn from seasoned spiritual men and women of God how to grow in the things of the spirit. We can start from trusting God with the little things and then building up from there. It is sad how we have been deceived into thinking that God does not care about the little issues.    Even though Jesus made it clear that God cares to the smallest level of knowing the number of hairs we have on our head. How much more caring about helping us find our keys, or reminding us to switch off appliances before we leave the house.

Jesus was a very spiritual Man, He said, “hear what my Father says, see what my Father does and I say and do exactly the same things.” Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10, “But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him. But God has revealed them to us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.” The Spirit of God is always revealing to us the things which God has freely given to us. But it takes continuous practice in hearing God to be able to receive deeper things. For example if we ask the Holy Spirit to help us find our keys, and we find it where we had the idea to look for it, then that is us hearing God’s voice through the Holy Spirit. With time we will hear Him tell us more powerful things. But it starts with the little steps of faith. So start from today to daily ask one question regarding your life and grow from there to 24/7 hearing.

Our thought for this week is: Press into developing your spiritual senses, using the Word (Bible) and the Holy Spirit.
