Inspirational Wednesday: Spiritual Gift of Discernment

Psalm 119:125

I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.

When King David wrote this Psalm, his prayer to God was as his servant his desire was to be blessed with the spiritual gift of discernment. He wanted to be given direction and full understanding in the statutes so that he could make sound judgments.

When we consider possessing this spiritual gift of discernment what we can keep in mind is that it is more than a skill, and that it is a process that can be sharpened and developed over time. When we pay attention to intuition that is our spirit trying to share something with us. The more we are sensitive to our spirit the more we can develop our spiritual discernment skills.

The opposite can also be true. If we ignore little nudging’s that are warning us about something, that is our intuition on alert. Don’t ignore these little nudging’s. It is your spiritual gift of discernment at work. Your spirit is only preparing you for something, so get ready.

The spiritual gift of discernment is a wonderful gift to possess when you are trying to determine the direction that you should take or have full understanding of a situation. It’s a judgment call and your spirit is there to guide you through it step by step.


Finally I will close this week’s lesson on the spiritual gift of discernment with a scripture that discusses a King who was blessed with incredible spiritual gifts including discernment – King Solomon.

 2 Chronicles 2:12

And Hiram added:“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, who made heaven and earth! He has given King David a wise son, endowed with intelligence and discernment, who will build a temple for the Lord and a palace for himself.
