In Nehemiah 6, we obtain a glimpse into the amazing discernment of Nehemiah. In this series we’ve been discussing three elements that can be helpful for us to become more discerning.
The Third Element is to Listen to the Holy Spirit. As followers of Jesus under the New Covenant we have a benefit that even Nehemiah didn’t have, the Holy Spirit’s presence. The Holy Spirit will help us discern right from wrong and good from evil.
Jesus said in John 14:26, “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
If you pray and listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, you will become more discerning like Nehemiah.
