Sensitive to God

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."  (Luke 21:36)

Jesus warns His disciples to take heed lest their hearts be over charged with surfeiting and drunkenness and in cares of this life.  Even when we are serving God, organization and such responsibilities can take our prayer time and we lose the edge of our spiritual life.  "And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth" (Job 11:6).  Setting time apart to search ourselves before God is called watching. We must wait till the voice of God reaches to us to reveal to us our spiritual condition.  It would be a great pity if that watchfulness is cut off from us.  We must have seasons of prayer to search ourselves and dig into ourselves, lest the love of the world and the cares of this world blind us and make us sin against God.  When our eyes are blinded, presumption comes into us.  When we are getting strong in the Lord there comes into us a certain amount of confidence and presumption.  When we receive many answers to prayer we become presumptuous.  God will tell us our errors.  People may not find fault with us because we have established a good name.  God wants to make you a very sensitive and a very powerful instrument.  God wants to make you sensitive in your thoughts so that you might be perfect.  A sensitive instrument must be carefully handled and kept carefully in a safe place.  God knows how to prepare you, but Satan tries to prevent it.  Very often wrong friends and going to wrong places makes you dull spiritually.  God wants to make your mind very keen and your heart very full of His thoughts.  Your prayer may take the same time but you would have uttered all your heart.  The reason is that the Word of God is deepening you.  Then the Word of God will reach you in prayer and you will be equal to it.  When God asked Abraham for his son, he was equal to it.  God did not ask him for his son, when he was in Egypt.
