Everyday Discernment: The Importance of Spirit-led Decision Making

Everyday Discernment: The Importance of Spirit-led Decision Making – Day 9

What do you allow into your eyes? What do you allow into your mind? What do you allow into your ears? What movies do you watch? What tv shows do you watch? What music or radio programs do you listen to? What books or articles do you read? Do you realize they have an impact on you? That is why God’s Word tells us to take every thought captive in order to gain control over what we think about ourselves and life! God’s Word tells us to demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and to take every thought captive to make it obedient to Jesus! So let’s pause and seek discernment before we allow things into our minds through our eyes and ears!

Let’s check out what wisdom we can receive today through the Everyday Discernment devotional by Tim Ferrara!

Life demands we make critical choices, but how can you do so effectively? Your ability to discern can make all the difference in what your future looks like. As you read, you will discover how to measure what you are taught against the truth of God’s Word, how to develop a life-giving connection with God, and the path to finding clear direction from the Holy Spirit.

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. ‘

Philippians 4:8

‘Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. ‘

Ephesians 4:29

‘Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. ‘

Colossians 3:2

Let’s spend time in God’s Word so that the light of God can shine upon us in order that we can shine as we go out into the world! God’s Word never returns void and is active and alive! So let’s make time to allow God’s Word to intersect with our lives and help us become more like Jesus!

Let’s be the dads who fix our thoughts on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and admirable! Let’s be the dads who think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise! Let’s be the dads who don’t use foul and abusive language! Let’s be the dads who only speak good and helpful words! Let’s be the dads who only say words that will be an encouragement to those who hear them! Let’s be the dads who are focusing on living our lives in a way that shows the world around us that our focus on loving God and loving people is based on the reality that we think about the things of heaven rather than the things of the earth!
