As humans, don’t we tend to live and view life focusing on things that relate to our five senses in a humanly way?
The way we perceive life through our senses affects and influences the way we see God working.
Have you ever thought that God callS us to see Him working using our “spiritual” senses?
SIGHT…..What we can physically SEE with our eyes is what is usually our reality.
Maybe God is calling us to develop spiritual eyes to see how He is constantly working in our lives even if we do not physically see Him.
Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” –John 20:29 (NIV)
SOUND….The things we can audibly HEAR with our ears from so many others is what we believe.
Maybe God is calling us to develop spiritual ears to hear His voice only; the only voice that matters.
“My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.” –John 10:27 (NIV)
TASTE…The food we actually TASTE is what we seek more of.
Maybe God is calling us to develop spiritual food to seek more of Him…to taste how good He truly is.
Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! –Psalm 34:8 (NLT)
TOUCH…..With the sense of touch we can FEEL a gamut of emotions from anger to happiness.
Maybe God is calling us to develop a spiritual sense of His touch, with His compassion, in our lives.
Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” –Mark 1:41 (NLT)
SMELL….The aromas we can SMELL can influence our moods.
Maybe God is calling us to develop a spiritual fragrance that is pleasing to Him.
For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. –2 Corinthians 2:15 (NIV)
