Topic: Prayer – The Pathway to Spiritual Sensitivity
SCRIPTURE: I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. – Habakkuk 2:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot access direction in life without asking God for it at the place of prayer.
Sometime ago, during a 21-day prayer and fasting programme, a young man in our church gave a testimony of how he went to a bank to withdraw about five hundred thousand Naira (N500,000.00) and then drove to a shopping mall with the money inside his car. He stepped inside a shopping mall to buy some items leaving the money in his car. While he was in the shopping mall, he suddenly felt uneasy so he went outside, and on looking at where he parked his car, he saw hoodlums attempting to break into his car in order to get away with the money. He immediately raised alarm which led to the arrest of those hoodlums. Thus his money was preserved as a result of the spiritual direction (signal) he received in a moment.
When we invest our time at the place of prayer; such directions become very easy to access. This kind of direction is needed for our daily living; to know who is a friend and who is not, who to marry and who not to marry, etc.
Asking provokes direction (Jeremiah 6:16). You cannot access direction in life without asking God for it at the place of prayer.
Remember this: You cannot access direction in life without asking God for it at the place of prayer.
1. Make demands on Divine direction in every path of your life.
2. Maintain a daily sweet fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
