We all have different lives to live. Some of us might be missionaries, and, yet, some are called to reach out to others in the workplace. Some are called to move to other countries, and yet others are called to never marry.
The fundamental part of this, though, is that to follow God, you must know his Word. Studying the Bible is paramount, especially in these days, and yet fewer people are doing so; it is what will help you to discern a truth from a lie. But this is not the only thing needed. A true relationship with the Son of the Living God is necessary to discern the truths of the Bible though in every discernment there must be a test before any action.
Discernment is a gift from God that allows us to see deeper into something. When we learn through discernment, it can become wisdom. But not every discernment can be applied to every situation.
We must be very careful in these last days. We must test everything. If something does not stand the test having been contradictory to the Bible with confirmation through prayer and fasting, then it is a false teaching. You cannot rely on man’s wisdom; you must rely on God’s wisdom.
If something does not seem right, or sit with you well, you must not act in haste in action other than to seek God’s Word with prayer and fasting asking God to confirm the truth in that matter.
Don’t seek knew ways to find out the truth. There is only one truth, and it is found through a true relationship with the Son of the Living God Jesus Christ our Lord who died on the cross taking our sin upon himself so that we would not forever be condemned. It is through Him, and our dedication to him, that we seek wisdom and petition God the Father.
We must keep our eyes open, seek wisdom in all things and keep our eyes on Jesus. Remember that when we take our eyes off of Jesus, we have placed our focus on the wickedness of this world.
I leave you with 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 NIV,
Be on your guard; stand form in the faith; be men [or women] of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.
Go forth and be blessed my friend.
