BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 9-11
Discernment is the ability to tell when something is good or evil, and it is a gift from the Holy Spirit. Regardless of your age, as a Christian teenager, you should be able to tell the difference between what is of God and what is of the devil. However, it takes one with a discerning spirit to be able to distinguish between spirits.

We are in the end times, and I know that many teenagers are struggling with their faith because there are different prophets and teachers with doctrines from the pit of hell. Therefore, you need the spirit of discernment so you will be able to tell the right doctrine from the wrong ones.
Likewise, you need this gift in choosing your friends. The Bible enjoins us to love everyone, but it is not everyone you come across that should be your friend. Thus, I charge you to ask the Holy Spirit for this gift as it will help you in your walk with God and your relationship with people.
Father, please give me a discerning spirit, in Jesus’name.
HYMN 8 – Forth In Your Name, O Lord, I Go,
- Forth in your name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labor to pursue,
You only, Lord, resolved to know
In all I think or speak or do.
- The task your wisdom has assigned
Here let me cheerfully fulfill;
In all my work your presence find,
And prove your good and perfect will.
- You may I set at my right hand,
Whose eyes my inmost secrets view,
And labor on at your command
And offer all my work to you.
- Help me to bear your easy yoke
In ev’ry moment watch and pray,
And still to things eternal look
And hasten to that glorious day.
- Then with delight may I employ
All that your bounteous grace has given,
And run my earthly course with joy,
And closely walk with you in heaven.
