1 Corinthians 2:12-13 We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit.
Spiritual discernment is the ability to know what the Holy Spirit is communicating to you. It is the attentiveness you give to God’s loving invitation to come close to Him and receive his help in life. This is discernment of His presence, power and peace. Out of this awareness you discover God’s divine intention for you in following His will in your life. This discernment of His purpose and priorities for you becomes a shared expression of His love for the world around you.
Where your heart is, there you will find your discernment. If you are like me, your heart needs daily re-alignment with the Holy Spirit. No one is exempt from this. The condition of our hearts directly impacts the process of discerning God’s will for our day. Take a few moments today to think about all which God has made possible in and through your life. Then live this day with thanksgiving, sharing your life with others.
