Encouragement and Prayer: Discernment That Leads To Knowledge! (08/12/22)


This is the audio from the August 12, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“Who is wise? He will realize these things.  Who is discerning? He will understand them.  The ways of the LORD are right;  the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.”
Hosea 14:9 (NIV)

This week’s prayer focus is about living with courageous discernment.  Not everything is always as it first appears and there are many who attempt to deliberately deceive for a variety of reasons.  Discernment is the quality necessary to live in the world between “everything is permissible” and “not everything is beneficial”.  Discernment is a gift from God that helps us to live in the freedom of doing what benefits others according to their need.

“The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.”
Proverbs 18:15 (NIV)

As you pray this week, ask God to fill you with a discernment that gives you a greater understanding of His righteous ways.  Pray that the discernment you seek from God would lead to actual knowledge.  Pray that you would have “wise ears” that seek out the knowledge that comes through godly discernment.  Pray that your life would share godly knowledge with others.
