Walking in the Spirit: Discernment for a Deeper Relationship with God
Do you want to better understand and respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit? Spiritual discernment is key to recognizing God's will and avoiding being led astray by false teachings. Learn how to develop this important spiritual gift and start walking in the Spirit today.
The Bible talks about the importance of spiritual discernment in many passages. For instance, in 1 Corinthians 2:14, it states, "But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." The Bible also talks about how we must "test the spirits" to see if they are of God (1 John 4:1).
Spiritual discernment is important because it helps us recognize and respond to the presence of the Holy Spirit. It also helps us recognize the difference between what is of God and what is of the enemy.
Discernment allows us to recognize false teachings and avoid being led astray. It also helps us make wise decisions and have a better understanding of the will of God. The gift of spiritual discernment is given to us by the Holy Spirit. It is one of the gifts of the Spirit that are listed in 1 Corinthians 12:10. This gift helps us to understand spiritual matters more clearly and to recognize when the enemy is trying to deceive us. It is a powerful tool that helps us better understand and follow the will of God.
We can also walk in the Spirit by yielding to the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Galatians 5:16 says, "Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh." This means that when we are in tune with the Holy Spirit, we will be able to resist temptation and do what is right. The more we yield to the leading of the Spirit, the more we will be able to discern what is of God and what is of the enemy.
The Bible also speaks of the importance of using spiritual discernment in our daily lives. In 1 Thessalonians 5:21–22, it states, "Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil." This means that we should be discerning in all things and only hold on to what is good. We should also avoid evil in all of its forms.
Finally, the Bible also speaks of the importance of walking in the Spirit. In Galatians 5:25, it states, "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." When we walk in the Spirit, we will be able to discern what is of God and what is of the enemy. We will be able to recognize false teaching and resist temptation. We will also be able to understand and follow the will of God more clearly.
In conclusion, spiritual discernment is an important part of our walk with God. It helps us recognize and respond to the presence of the Holy Spirit and recognize false teachings. We are given the gift of spiritual discernment by the Holy Spirit, and we should use it in our daily lives to make wise decisions and to follow the will of God. Finally, we should always strive to walk in the Spirit so that we can more easily discern what is of God and what is of the enemy.
