be spiritually discerning
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak
Matthew 26:41

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Tuesday 13th July 2021

God said, “My people are destroyed for lack
of knowledge…” (Hosea 4:6). And Jesus said,
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make
you free” (John 8:32). Many are walking in darkness
without knowing, because they don’t know the truth
they don’t know the Scriptures. They’re honestly
seeking truth they want to know God, but then they
go to the wrong place for knowledge.
Just because you heard some people say, “Shout
hallelujah and clap for Jesus,” doesn’t mean it’s a church
of Jesus Christ. You’ve got to be spiritually discerning.
In Acts 16, while walking through the marketplace,
Paul and Silas encountered a girl possessed with an
evil spirit. The Bible says, “The same followed Paul and
us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of
the most high God, which shew unto us the way of
salvation” (Acts 16:17).
Wasn’t she stating a fact? She was! But the 18th
verse says, “…Paul, being grieved, turned and said to
the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ
to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.”
What she was saying sounded nice, but she was being
influenced by a spirit of divination. Paul discerned this,
for as she spoke, he (Paul) was grieved in his spirit.
When the Spirit of God speaks, a child of God isn’t
grieved in his spirit rather, you’re edified. When you
hear a voice or a message, you have to know by what
spirit such a message is coming to you. Many Christians
have listened to the voice of Satan and mistaken it for
God’s voice, because they were undiscerning.
We’re in the last days, and Jesus told us these
things would happen so He says, “Watch and pray,
that ye enter not into temptation….” And in Matthew
10:16, He said, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in
the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents,
and harmless as doves.” Then in Ephesians 5:15 AMP
He tells us not to be ignorant, but to always discern
the will of God: Therefore see that you walk carefully
[living life with honor, purpose, and courage
shunning those who tolerate and enable evil], not
as the unwise, but as wise [sensible, intelligent,
discerning people.


Righteous Father, I thank you for conditioning my spirit, and granting me the ability to discern and walk in your perfect will always your Word is the true light that gives me direction and guidance. And now, Lord, I pray for as many as are being swayed in the wrong direction, that they’d hear your voice today and follow the truth of the Gospel, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
