Discernment in the last days

 Loving Lord I know that it says in the Bible that the people of this world do not understand the Scriptures nor do they understand the things of the Spirit of God - because they are foolishness to the natural heart of man. It says that they do not understand the things of God because they are spiritually discerned.

Give me spiritual understanding and wisdom, to discern the things of God, I pray, – for it is my desire to know the truth You have promised to everyone who trusts You as Saviour - as we travel through this evil world.

At times Lord I feel as if I am a single sheep in the midst of a hungry pack of wolves – but I also know that You have counselled us to be wise as serpents and as harmless as doves..

Give me discernment I pray, so that I may be as wise as a serpent in the midst of this crooked generation but also give me the gentle Spirit of Christ – that the love of Jesus may show forth in my life, as I seek to walk worthy for You, in the days that lie ahead,

AMEN
