Why do some of us seem to have a better spirit of discernment than others? Perhaps you believe that you lack the gift of discernment all together. Your spirit is constantly giving you feedback. You’re either not receiving the message or you’re misinterpreting the signs. When you’re uncertain about how to proceed, your gift can provide valuable feedback.
It’s a mistake to only rely on logic when you have other tools at your disposal. Give your gift a chance.
Learn to cultivate and use your gift of discernment:
1. Practice addressing and listening to your gift of discernment. You probably already do this, just not at a sufficient level. When faced with multiple possibilities, give your gift of discernment to chime in. Start with little things. “Should I visit someone at the hospital or stay at home?
Ask yourself these types of questions as they come up in your life and notice the response you receive.
2. Notice how your spirit of discernment communicates with you. It might be in the form of a verbal response. In many cases, you’ll get a feeling in your body that might take the form of a feeling in your stomach, chest, or head. It could reveal itself as a sense of calmness, knowing or anxiety.
It’s important to understand that your intuition is flawed. It’s flawed because of your fears and misconceptions. For example, you’ll never get a good vibe about spending time with someone new if you have social anxiety issues.
However, the Holy Spirit knows all things and already has a lot of life experience. The vast wisdom from those two things is locked inside of you. Your spirit uses that information to guide you – if you’ll listen.
