Spiritual sight!

The apostle prayed that the ‘Father of glory would give us a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of our hearts enlightened to know and see’ (Eph 1:17-18).

What does this practically look like? It includes having our spiritual and or natural eyes opened to the unseen realm of dreams, visions, angels, demons or whatever else is relevant to the edification of others and ministry to the body.

You should ask the Lord to open your ears to hear his voice, both the audible voice and the whispering voice of the Holy Spirit. Ask God to enable you to feel his presence. You may feel a variety of things, including, external feelings of pressure, cold, burning, weightiness, wind or literal breeze around us. Internally, emotions may go from sobbing to deep inner awareness of peace and solitude.

The easiest and most basic way to stay spiritually alert is to regularly ask the question, ‘Lord, what are you saying or doing? Show me.’ Faint impressions are the most common manifestations we experience. However, if you don’t ask what God is saying or doing, then we will miss out on any opportunities that help us grow in our ability to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
