Desensitized

Jennifer Cole

"...plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the LORD, that He may come and shower righteousness upon you." Hosea 10:12, NLT

Early in our lives and in our Christian walk, we are sensitive to the Lord, to the voice of our conscience and to keeping our hearts clear. However, if we begin to spend too much time watching the wrong kind of stuff on TV or at the movies, too much time listening to the wrong reports, songs or conversations, too much time hanging with the wrong crowd, and too much time participating in things that are contrary to what we know is right and true, we can become desensitized. 

After a while, we aren't grieved or vexed in our spirit. We don't close our eyes when there’s something inappropriate on the screen -- we aren't bothered by hearing the Lord's Name being taken in vain. We aren't bothered by the sexual immorality in the culture -- we aren't touched by the pain and suffering people experience in real tragedies. We rationalize everything and we become desensitized. Taken to an extreme, we can even begin to cheer for the very things the Lord disapproves, which were the things that we once disapproved.

Have you become desensitized? Has your heart hardened to the things you were sensitive to at one time? Are there people you once had compassion for? Are there convictions you once held that have gotten watered down?

If so, the solution is to pray and ask the Lord to break up the hard, fallow ground once again! When we ask the Lord to do a work in our hearts -- softening, tilling and breaking up areas that have hardened -- He will go to work. He will probably ask us to make some changes...changes in what we see, what we hear, what we do and who we hang with. If you want to get back to a place of having a heart that is tender, caring and sensitive to the Lord and those around you -- take some time to pray today.

Say This: "Father, I am sorry that I have allowed myself to get desensitized to things -- those things that once grieved me and those things that once moved me. I ask You to help me break up the hardened soil of my heart. It's time for me to seek You and Your ways. I thank You for tenderizing my heart today. I ask You to help me get back to a place where my heart is pure, caring and sensitive to You and those around me. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
