Sensitivity

Have you tried to go somewhere or venture into something that your spirit or instinct did not agree with? What's the outcome? I can tell it's never a pleasant one. You must have also heard people share their experiences in this regard as well. That's why I urge you in this writeup to stop ignoring your instinct and the promptings of the Holy Spirit (if you have Him already). Have an impactful read.

A long time ago, I was 17 and sitting for my first JAMB exams in the city of Lokoja. While on transit to my examination center, I met this young man in the cab we boarded. He asked for my contact, and I gave it to him. He started calling, asking about my exams and welfare. Eventually, he asked that we see. The place wasn't far from the house, so I obliged.

But you see, SOMETHING KEPT TELLING ME THAT IT MAY NOT BE A GOOD IDEA, but I waved it off. Halfway to the place, one of my friends called me and asked where I was going. After he hung up, I changed my mind and turned back. It was later he told me that that wasn't what he said, that he didn't ask me any questions. Wow!

Earlier, when I was yet in high school, a corp member had asked that I see him at his apartment in the staff quarters. I was very happy because the students loved to visit the staff quarters. But why would he ask me to come alone? IT STRUCK A CHORD IN MY HEAD, but I ignored it. Whatever made me open my mouth to tell my friend Mercy, I don't know. Then she insisted that she must go with me.

Why on earth would this girl want to ruin my chance of enjoying what this Mr wants to give me alone? I tried to go alone, but she noticed and went with me anyway. And the Mr kept asking time after time into our conversations, "Faith, why did you come with this girl?" I started noticing how he would stare at me whenever I entered the staff room. A very uncomfortable stare. I'm sure you're getting the point in the gist already.

Someone was in a place, and all of a sudden, she started feeling hot and uneasy and had an urge to leave the place that very moment. Shortly after she left, a bomb blast happened! Truly, God is amazing! Whenever you feel a prompting in your spirit about anything, don't just say 'SOMETHING TELLS ME.'

Thank God for the people God used to rescue me. I can't imagine what God had saved me from, even in my ignorance and carelessness. But you see, you may not be as lucky as me. Whenever you're having doubts or double-mindedness about anything, please don't say it doesn't matter. Scrutinize it properly; God may be trying to save you from something!

God uses our instincts to save us from danger. More importantly, He uses His Spirit. You can't survive the cruelty of this age without the Spirit of God. Do you have Him already? If you haven't, invite Him today; He is waiting with open arms!

Thanks for reading,

~Faith Abuh
