Learn To Be Aware

over shoulder look

 

Discernment can come as a gift of God in a sudden knowing or awareness, or we can ask for wisdom that will help us learn to discern.  We can learn to be aware of the presence of gathering forces lurking to take advantage of conditions, circumstances and activities.  It is wise not to ignore the nuances, the fleeting thoughts and sounds and awarenesses, the dream or vision glimpses, the echoes of conversation that keep coming to mind, etc.  Connect the dots until you have a picture of what is going on.  When something touches our awareness, even if it has been allowed for generations and its tenure has made it a norm, we are alive to confront it.   When air holds God-stuff, then, “Amen.”  If it is not, then, “Shut up.”  Or simply say, “No,” when you begin to realize something is trying to affect the atmosphere around you negatively.  Otherwise, whispers can stay in the atmosphere and linger until the enemy can use them to his advantage for influence.
