SCRIPTURE READING | 2 KINGS 4: 8-21, 34
When the woman of Shunem continually saw Elisha pass by her abode, she perceived that he was a holy man of God. The word ‘perceive’ as used in that scripture comes from the Hebrew word ‘yada’; one of the meanings of ‘yada’ is ‘to discern’. So that woman of Shunem discerned that Elisha was a holy man of God; apparently, Elisha did not announce that he was a holy man of God, but the woman of Shunem perceived it.
Friend, has God been allowing great opportunities to come your way but you were unable to notice same because they came without announcement? If you check carefully, you just might realize that there are profitable relationships God brought your way, but you were too insensitive to notice; there could have been potential clients that came your way but you just didn’t notice; there could be an ‘Elisha’ passing by you daily, but you haven’t noticed because there is been no announcement.
Today, God says, deepen your perception; grow your spiritual sensitivity; dare to see what others are not yet seeing; dare to notice what others are not yet noticing; look beyond the surface and discover what may not readily meet the eyes; open the eyes of your spirit man and discover what unspiritual men are yet to see; step into the realm of divine revelation and seek divine insights into happenings around you.
If you fail to grow your spiritual sensitivity, you will continually miss opportunities that heaven ordained for you; if you fail to discern as much as you should, you will miss the purpose for certain things, people, opportunities, etc that God brings your way; if your spiritual eyes are not open, you may even walk into the trap of the enemy thinking you are at the right place.
For the New Testament believer, there is no substitute for spiritual sensitivity. Deepen your discernment and sensitivity to the signals from the Holy Spirit, and you will not miss the mark.
