Discernment: The act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment, the ability to judge well, keenness of insight, prayerful reflection and discussion before making a decision. Discernment is the ability to think Biblically about all areas of life.
Discernment is a sometimes difficult and laborious work….but the rewards of correct discernment can not be overstated.
Discernment of good & evil, is developed by
1) Knowing the Word of Righteousness
2) Walking with the Word of Righteousness (when you walk with the Word of Righteousness, you ARE being the Friend of God).
Two spiritual realms are in operation in this world: God & Satan
Every day Satan wants to be the god of your life.
You must make the conscious choice to keep yourself only unto YOUR God….
And then you live out your day IN friendship with Him….talking to Him, sensing His Presence, meditating in His Word…..
DISCERNING good from evil by constantly using the Word of Righteousness: Hebrews 5:14
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
But strong meat is for the perfect; for them who by custom have their senses exercised to the discerning of good and evil.
Darby Bible Translation
but solid food belongs to full-grown men, who, on account of habit, have their senses exercised for distinguishing both good and evil
Weymouth New Testament
Such persons are mere babes. But solid food is for adults–that is, for those who through constant practice have their spiritual faculties carefully trained to distinguish good from evil.
Consciously practice developing discernment as you go through your day……
