DISCERNMENT OPPORTUNITY – Thu, Nov 17, 2016


​Acts 16:6-7 KJV

Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
[7] After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.

A gentleman went to a school to collect money from his master’s debtors. After taking monies from 5 people he had to wait a while to meet the 6th person. When she finally showed up, she was in all black apparel and looked very sad.

Our gentleman decided to deviate from the original plan. With much concern he ministered to this woman who had only become a widow the night before. For the next few weeks he’d check on her and provide emotional relief.

Years later, this lady, now an evangelist, confessed that she gave her life to God because that gentleman yielded to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and decided to deviate from an original plan. Many more souls have been won because he yielded.

Discerning the promptings of the Holy Spirit is one of the most important arts a Christian must develop. There’s time for everything… even a time NOT to preach the Word.  How would you know what time it is if you miss the opportunity to discern?
Have a blessed day.
