God’s Holy Fire: ”Test the Spirits’
Saturday, February 22, 2020
Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
Occasionally, we hear someone say something, preach something, or teach something that doesn’t sit well in our hearts. We have a nagging feeling that something just isn’t quite right with what was said. The Holy Spirit within us gives us a sick feeling in the pit of our stomachs — I call this feeling the “greasies” — letting us know that something isn’t quite right. The things said could be very pleasing to us, they could be difficult for us to hear, or they could be the culturally acceptable point of view. No matter on what trajectory the comments reach us, we need to pray and seek the Spirit’s leading and then open the Scriptures to check and see if what we heard is really from God. Spiritual discernment is an important work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
O Father, I confess that sometimes I get busy and distracted. In such times, I know that I don’t always practice good spiritual discernment. In the rush of my life, I sometimes neglect to open your word as often as I should, and I don’t come into your presence seeking to have my heart tuned by your Holy Spirit. Father, please forgive me and also guide me through the leading of your Spirit so I may know and obey your will. I ask this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
