1 Corinthians 12:10 – He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and to another the ability to prophecy. He gives someone the ability to know whether it is really the Spirit of God or another spirit that is speaking. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, and another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. (NLT)
As my friend and I were driving home one day, we noticed two men on the side of the road beating another man with a bat. Immediately, I pulled over and jumped out of the car. As I started walking towards the assailants, I noticed all three of these men got up and walked away…together.
This made for an odd situation. As I noticed, the situation was not as it had seemed to be at first. In fact, as I analyzed the situation more, I realized it was most likely a staged incident. To this day, I am not sure why these men did what they did.
The gift of discernment is to know the difference from right and wrong. But it also can be defined being able to look deeper than what the naked eye can see. This gift of discernment can shows us what is actually happening versus what we think. We can have the ability to look past the deception of Satan’s tricks which can prevent us from becoming ensnared. If there was no discernment on that street that day, the situation could have changed very quickly and may not be here to tell about it.
