Discernment, Spirit and Faith

Tuning fork—when pianos are tuned to the same fork, they are in harmony. When two come together who have been tuned by the same fork, there is instant harmony.

  Blessed are those who have heard the joyful sound. when we agree, we walk together.

  Indecision keeps us from our destiny. Learning to discern is the secret to moving out of the wilderness and into the Promised Land. 

  Learn To Discern

  Now we must begin to understand how to discern, or receive and interpret the things we hear in the spirit. 

Discernment is the ability to understand the root cause or the intention of a person’s decisions.

  Discernment must have more power in your life than your personal passions and desires. It even be greater than the call you have on your life.

  Who do you trust your future to? Who do you trust who will give you clear counsel totally in your best interest?

  Teach me good discernment and knowledge, For I believe in Thy commandments. (Psa 119:66 NASB)

  For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; (Prov 2:3 NASB)

  Then you will discern the fear of the LORD, And discover the knowledge of God. (Prov 2:5 NASB)

  Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good course. (Prov 2:9 NASB)

Most of the decisions and opinions are formed in the realm of spirit. These things are deeper.

  Live in the Spirit, then walk in the Spirit. Discernment is only in the Spirit. The 5 senses cannot discern the Spirit, cannot discern a situation, nor discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. Put no confidence in the flesh.

  (Phi 3:3) for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh,

 (Phi 3:4) although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more:

 Have God’s view of the world. (Driven by His emotions) The world does not take care of itself. Trust God for your salvation. Religion has us self-centered; worried about our imperfection and problems while the enemy runs rampant in the world.

Salvation belongs to the Lord and to His people! 

  Faith in God…Remember who you are!!!

 Every time I talk about faith, it seems that I should re-assure us that God loves us and really wants to bless us.

 “Why have faith? Am I too messed up for Him to bless me?”

  We are born of Jacob…the one who does not deserve God’s love but gets anyway. God loves and forgives and cleanses Jacob. The God of Jacob does not disqualify us. He forgives us and encourages us to go on.

  Ps.146 :3 Do not trust in princes, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.

Ps.146:5 How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the LORD his God;

  Patience allows you to love in peace, anticipating the purposes of God in your life.

Col. 3: 12 And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;

  Faith gives us the ability to allow the free flow between the natural and the spiritual. Faith moves us into the spirit and moves the spiritual from eternity into time and space.

 Everything God is and does is spiritual. His existence is in the dimension of spirit. Our faith moves what is in this dimension into the realm that we live in. 


 1. Faith is the part of us that reaches into the spiritual to receive all God has promised for us.

 This action of faith takes care of the physical part of us so we can respond to the Spirit.

2. Faith is also the part of us that allows us to live in the Spirit, see in the Spirit and move in the Spirit.

 This action of Faith allows us to dwell where He is and function in the spirit realm.

  Faith is the energy that causes the inter action between God and man. Faith causes us to move outside ourselves and embrace what is not seen by the human eye. God intends this to be our lifestyle. Faith can move in us and through us every moment of every day.

Faith causes us to move…to do something…to respond to faith.

 Today, we need to release our faith to believe God for the interaction between man and God that He wants for us. He loves us.

  He will give us discernment and understanding into His plan for us.
