DISCERNING THE TIMES
Ecclesiastes 8 vs
5■He who keeps his command will experience nothing harmful; and a wise man’s heart discerns both time and judgment.- |NKJV|
ONE principle in God’s Kingdom is the ability to discern into the times and seasons (1 Kings 3:9; Prov 7:7). Yes, this era demands “Discerning Christians”, not just those who enjoy spending the time. Many people love to enjoy the times without discerning into it. So they flow with “anything” that comes along their way. *But the New Creation is a different breed. He has the mind of Christ and therefore should walk accordingly.* In 2018, discerning hearts and minds will get most of it.
To discern means _to learn to know or perceive, find out or distinguish._ Yes, God desires that you learn to distinguish between the times. Our focused scripture says it takes a wise man’s heart to discern both time and justice. *A wise man’s heart is one filled with the knowledge and wisdom of Christ; which guides his thoughts, choices, decisions and entire life.* In other words, a wise man’s mind will know both when and what to do.
Beloved, if you do not discern the times, you can’t live a successful life. In discerning the times, you must do that in God’s perspective, not just on a carnal or natural level. By so doing, you will be keeping the commands of the King which will save you from harm. Cherished one, the secular world is moved by the normal trends of the time but those who are of God move by the trends of the Holy Spirit through discernment. This will help you to know when and how to respond to the vicissitudes of life. You have the wisdom of God in you, walk with a discerning heart of the times. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Omniscient Father, thank You for the ability to discern the time and walk in wisdom as required of me. I humble my heart to press in for more levels that pertain to the trends of Your Spirit in Jesus Name. Amen !_
Enjoy A Fruitful Monday and Prosperous New Year
