As promised Distractions vs. the Spiritual gift of discernment

As asked by the Spirit of the Lord we will begin with a simple explanation of distractions; we have all been there some time or another within our lives where someone or something has tried to lure us towards doing something that would not be beneficial towards self or others... never the less we may have experienced it in a greater way when decsion making time has come and it is something that we really need to do, some people experience it with their health, others experience it inside of their relationships as we will see the protocol does not change... the purpose is to bring confusion into your mind and your heart causing you to become angry or disastified at your present state of mind... People who say that you must be religious is another way of distraction focusing on the rituals of standing before God without considering the outcomes of one's actions..

Those with the gift of discernment have the ability to determine genuineness or phoniness. An example of leading through discernment would be a person judging that someone wants to be in a position of leadership out of a wrong motive (1 Jn. 4:1-3).Spiritual Gifts Passage on Discernment

Understanding and knowing the voice of God inside of others is always a part of the beautiful gift of discernment... John 10: 27 My sheep hear My voice and I know them...
