Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit – Prayer for August 17. Bless the Lord, for He alone is worthy! In the morning, when you’re preparing go out and greet the day, trying to decide which watch to wear or what chain or necklace goes with your outfit. Do you also agonize over your spiritual accessories?
Bible Verse for Today
“My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your site; They will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet; Have no fear of sudden disaster or the ruin that overtakes the wicked, For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.” (Proverbs 3:21-26)
In the natural Christians are just like anyone else when it comes to wanting to leave our homes appropriately dressed, making sure we have on just the right accessories to pull it all together. God is challenging us today to be just as attentive to our spiritual accessories as we are to our natural ones. Sound judgment and discernment, two spiritual accessories that we don’t think about much, but without them, we can easily be led astray by the enemy.
The more sensitive to the Holy Spirit you are the stronger your powers of discernment of spirits. The ability to know who you can trust and who you can’t, which leads to making sound choices in life. God has given all believers these abilities so as we navigate our way through the natural world we can avoid the pitfalls that those without the spirit of God find themselves so easily falling into.
So, if you want to avoid the everyday toils and snares of this world, always remember to wear your spiritual accessories around your neck. God bless.
