Year 9- Day 57: Today, I am grateful for discernment.
"Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right." -C.H. Spurgeon
A perfect definition for something hard to explain. With wisdom comes discernment. There are times when the path is not initially clear. Sometimes, it requires prayer, patience and stillness to hear God's whispers.
When God gave us the Ten Commandments, He was not sheepish. He was clear in His guidelines between right and wrong. There are times that it is not that simple. Some choices really are good, better and best decisions. How do we choose?
Prayer allows us to calm our hearts. Waiting allows us to build trust. Stillness tune us into His voice.
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” -Psalms 46:10
We must learn to be still to sharpen discernment. He will be exalted among the nations and on the earth. He will lead us with His wisdom.
Today, I am grateful for discernment.
