‘Your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”’ Isaiah 30:21 NIV
How many times has something inside urged you to do a certain thing, but instead you allowed the voice in your head to overrule the voice in your spirit? That inner voice is your spiritual intuition, the part of you God speaks to. The Bible says, ‘Your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”’ John the apostle put it this way: ‘You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.’ (1 John 2:20 NKJV)
Learn to trust that ‘anointing’ because it will tell you:
(a) what you need to do
(b) when you need to act
(c) what direction to take
(d) what changes you need to make
What a gift—yet we seldom use it! It’s said, ‘Too much analysis leads to paralysis.’ We’re afraid we couldn’t possibly know something without thinking it through, or because it seems too obvious. We think, ‘That can’t be right. I couldn’t possibly do that.’ We argue for our limitations, and as a result they become our limitations!
Learn to recognise and trust your spiritual intuition. It’s your connection to the greatest source of wisdom in the universe—God’s wisdom. And don’t be surprised when what you hear in your spirit sounds like what you’ve thought many times but paid no attention to. The Bible says, ‘It is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.’ (Philippians 2:13 NIV) So next time your spiritual intuition tells you something and it lines up with Scripture, don’t be afraid to act on it!
