How Can We Know?

You say, I’m being attacked by the enemy here and there.  Admittedly, sometimes we overuse that. One time or another we all have fallen into this trap. If not being under-spiritual, we become overly spiritual.

Here’s what I have learned from Dean’s Sherman’s book:

How can we know when it is the devil, and not just circumstances? How can we avoid that extreme of seeing demons behind everything that goes wrong? The answer is to simply ASK GOD. Don’t assume that it is the devil’s work, but don’t refuse to acknowledge it may be his doing. Just ask God to show you what is going on. He has promised to guide us.

“But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” (Hebrews 5:14)

“…to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues” (1 Corinthians 12:10)

Another truth with which we must equip ourselves is: WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST

To say we are Christian is not enough. We must believe God in His declaration of who we are.
