DISCERN YOUR NEW

29th August 2023

Scripture Reading: 1 KINGS 3: 16-28

Focus

“And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.” (1 Kings 3: 21)

In our Focal Scripture, after the woman who truly owned the living child reconsidered the dead baby in the morning, she discovered that the dead baby was not her son. She gave a closer look at the dead baby that was by her side as she woke up, and she realized that someone had played pranks on her. She took a closer look at the negativity the enemy wanted to hand over to her, and she realized that she was not the candidate for it.

Friend, I pray for you: may God grant you discernment into the attacks of the enemy against you. May the Lord cause your eyes to be open to see the exchanges that are going on around you. May God grant you discernment into the negative happenings around you that may seem normal. May the Lord cause you to discern what is your portion and what is not your portion. May the Lord help you discern your new season.

The woman whose child was alive would have imagined that her own baby was truly dead; but when she reconsidered the matter, she realized that someone had played games and sought to rob her of that which was truly hers. Again, I pray for you: may your eyes be open to see the wicked but smiling faces who want to rob you of that which is truly yours. May God grant you the grace to discern the traps of the enemy.

If you remain undiscerning, you may end up losing your portion. If you remain undiscerning, you may end up walking past your portion without knowing that God already positioned it to be yours. If you remain undiscerning, you may end up not recognizing the doors and gates that heaven opened for you. If you remain undiscerning, you may end up not knowing when your great future has been exchanged with deadness.

Don’t be counted amongst those who are undiscerning in the face of the devices of the enemy. Ask God to grant you discernment, that your portion be not taken away from you.

Declaration

My eyes are open to see; I discern between light and darkness, in Jesus’ name!
