Until we become spirit-conscious, we will not be able to understand what God is saying to our spirits. Spiritual things will be indistinct. But the more spirit-conscious we become, the more real the leading of the Lord will be to us.
– How you can know the will of God, Kenneth E. Hagin
Living in a city like Lagos is tedious. You ask yourself, ‘Is there any such thing like rest in Lagos?’ A good question: The weekday’s morning rush, Lagos traffic, office stress, end of the day’s exhaustion, landlord wahala and other unmentioned things. Everyone is moving towards something, regardless of the pace. Business tycoons are earning more money by the hour, emotional awareness is on the rise, regarding domestic violence, more people are seen in the early hours of the day, exercising and there are the few, who get the privilege of media attention for getting CGPA’s of 5.0, and the first successful kidney transplant was done (not the first in the world), in the South Eastern part of Nigeria. Most religious people attend Church very often in a week, but the same can’t be said for the the other Judases, who have forsaken the gathering of the brethren. You are limited to just attending Church on Sunday and the snippets of verse crumbs you’re able to grasp and the most important question arises: ‘How do I get my spiritual nudge?’ or when do I get my spiritual nudge?’ In another case you are not that busy, but you don’t know how. These are a few tips to spiritual awareness, awakeness or nudge:
- Seek God and his salvation.
- Sing praises and worship
- Maintain holiness.
- Read the scriptures.
- Study the word and keep it in your heart.
- Your words are your heart’s thoughts.
- Be patient.
- Be peaceful and consistent in your search for peace.
- Bring out good works through your actions.
These can be challenging, when you’re in a five hour traffic and the passenger sitting behind you has their knee digging your buttocks or the driver ahead is gisting or pressing their phone, instead of paying attention to the moving lane, but it is possible.
Never forsake the gathering of the brethren.
