Something to keep in mind when we are asking for confirmation of anything we think is from the Lord. We need to ask for discernment in all things. We may just be listening to our own thoughts and not be influenced by the Holy Spirit or under a demonic attack. We have free will!
If something doesn’t go our way, maybe it’s not in the will of the Lord! If we believe “The Lord Told Me Something” or “The Holy Spirit Said…” and we don’t have peace about it — pray for confirmation. We could just be getting in the way of the Lord’s will. Not having peace about something should be obvious, but we all deal with things differently. Pray for clarity!
Sometimes people try to influence an outcome in their favor and claim the Lord is telling them something. Be very sure you are hearing from the Holy Spirit and not trying to cause something to happen because it makes sense! We could even be trying to fulfill a need and claiming the “Holy Spirit said…”. Sometimes our own thoughts don’t make sense. Just take it to the Lord in prayer!
It is not “Ok to agree to disagree!” we must stand firm in the truth and not waiver. We need to pray for those who have fallen away and those that are teetering on the edge of destruction! Anyone who is sharing “A Word From The Lord” better make sure it truly is from the Lord! Sometimes we also have to walk away from those that refuse to hear the truth.
Sometimes we even have to walk away from those claiming to “hear from the Lord”, when we keep getting a “something is not right about that” feeling inside. We do need to keep everyone in prayer, no matter how we may perceive their walk with the Lord. Ask for discernment in all things!
