Do you have gifts of discernment?

If you know me or you don’t, I’m a Christian who did some volunteer work in Jerusalem Israel, serving the Jewish people, seeing and experiencing holidays and place associated with the Bible.

I’ve experienced some very odd things that are hard to explain, that come from being in a political and spiritually volatile place.   I’m now living in London UK, and after seeing some big changes happening with work, church, friends, these I am needing to seek the Lord about some complex challenges for the future.

I’ve been reading recently about the gifts of the spirit.   I’ve just read this particular article which talks about Gift of Discernment which really encouraged me.

This is one of the best things I’ve read on the subject.

I think its crucially important for Christians who seek to understand these, or already have spiritual gifts, not to misuse them or boast about them, and of course, Christians who don’t yet grasp these biblical concepts to discard it as a fad or a peculiarity also.

1 Thessalonians 5 : 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies, 21 but test everything; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil. 23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.
