Many are struggling with discernment, having problems identifying the plans of the enemy. Sometimes, we are guided by the Holy Spirit to make the right decisions but may choose otherwise because it appears more convenient in the short run.
We seek instant gratification instead of our long term spiritual well-being. Let us receive God’s gift of wisdom and discernment today and exercise it in our lives.
Dear God, please guide my steps not to seek counsels from ungodly people. Assist me to seek godly counselors who may guide me into making right decisions. Help me to prayerfully consider any counsel before I take an action. Do not let me rush into judgment and regret afterward. Rather, let your Holy Spirit counsel, comfort, and empower me to appropriately make decisions that will result in positive benefits. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
When we open our ears to hear what the Spirit is saying, we allow our hearts to be encouraged, thereby allowing the Holy Spirit to operate in us. God will do what he says He will do. We can anchor our faith on His Word.
Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
