Listen with Your Spirit
The wind blows (breathes) where it wills; and though you hear its sound, yet you neither know where it comes from nor where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. (JOHN 3:8)
When we are born again, we are made alive in our spirits and we become sensitive to the voice of God. We hear His whisper even though we cannot tell where it comes from. He speaks softly to convict, correct, and direct us with a still, small voice in our hearts.
We can communicate with human beings using our mouths, facial expressions, gestures, and all kinds of body language, but when we want to communicate with God, we have to do so with our spirits.
God speaks to our inner beings through direct communion, through intuition (a sense of unexplainable discernment), and through our conscience (our base convictions of right and wrong), and through peace. Our spirits can know things our natural minds do not understand and cannot grasp.
For example, when we are sensitive to God’s voice, we can look at a situation that appears to be right, but we know intuitively that something is wrong about it. That “check” in our spirits is intended to keep us from getting involved with someone we should not align with or becoming involved in something we should not participate in.
Pay attention to the things you feel in your heart and sense in your spirit because that is where God will speak words of direction, encouragement, warning, and comfort to you.
God’s word for you today: Pay attention to the “checks” in your spirit.
