      Liebert’s book, Way of Discernment: Spiritual Practices for Decision Making (Westminster John Knox, ) sketches common aspects of Christian discernment and offers various “entry points” to the practice. “How is God calling me to act in this particular situation?” is the question at the heart of the book. Do I have reasonably good health, emotional stability, social ease, and spiritual-centeredness? In a more specific way, there is a rather practical spiritual discernment process which can be a tool or guide to help us determine what God is calling us to. This discernment process combines reflection, prayer, dialogue, and Scripture.

    To have the spirit of discernment is to possess the ability to judge well. Paul refers to this as spiritual gift that God gives to believers in order to recognize lying spirits and to identify. Discernment is much more than mere decision making; it is, first of all, a habit, a way of seeing that can permeate our whole life. As it makes clear in John 9, it is the movement from seeing.

      Question: "What is the spiritual gift of discerning spirits?" Answer: The gift of discerning spirits, or “distinguishing” spirits, is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit described in 1 Corinthians Like all these gifts, the gift of discerning spirits is given by the Holy Spirit, who disperses these gifts to believers for service in the body of Christ. Micaiah said, “Therefore, hear the word of the Lord.I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left. The Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said this while another said that. Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’ read more.
