Desensitized means to render insensitive or less sensitive. Past feelings. To make emotionally insensitive or unresponsive.
The Bible tells us that in the last days people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity. Matthew 24:12.
When we look around it’s not hard to see how the hearts of so many people has become cold and calloused. Life revolves around “ME” The saddest thing is that its happened to the children of God. They are walking in darkness and have been so desensitized they don’t even recognize the change that’s taken place in their own life.
Test and trials can make one bitter and not better. An attitude can be taken that ” no one is going to hurt me again”. The only way out of that is through the grave. The enemy will provide many opportunities to put us through the fire. But when we walk through the fire, God has promised to be with us. Is. 43. The fourth man will show up and bring us out. And we won’t even look like we did when we started through. He makes beauty out of ashes. Glory to God!!!
The love of God has been shed aboard in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:5 And yet it’s not being displayed so the world will know us by the love we have one for another. John 13:35.
Proverbs 28:14 Amplified Bible says, ” Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) is the man who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord at all times (regardless of circumstances), but he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity. Calamity means disaster and distress.
Can you remember when you did something or said something that you knew wasn’t right and it bothered you until you got it right? Now, it’s as if it doesn’t matter. You know the saying, “oh well”, or “whatever” seem to have taken the place of godly sorrow that works repentance.
And we wonder why the power of God doesn’t manifest as it did in the early days of our salvation. Have we gotten away from walking in the compassion of The Lord? The Bible says, Jesus moved with compassion, because HE is compassion. Every where compassion (Jesus) went healing and deliverance took place.
When we walk through the crowds do we want to be seen or do we want Jesus to be seen through us.
We need to quit looking for an emotional high and once again fall in love with the Most High. Our hearts should be tender before God and very sensitive to each other. Sometimes that means we don’t say what is on our mind. I Corinthians 13 tells us what love would do.
Our cry to God should be “Lord forgive me for expecting something out of others that I am not willing to give. Change my heart. Help me to see others through your eyes.”
