Seeing or Discerning

Can you see angels? How about demons?

If not, how do you discern whether ideas that come to you about how to respond to situations have come from good or evil sources?

Unless you have come to be so in tune with the voice of the Shepherd that you hear all that He says and obey, you may need ways of checking ideas for validity and for Kingdom value. Instead of good and evil or right and wrong as your indicators, which are more difficult to discern with, use Life or death.

Genuine righteousness leads to life,
but pursuing evil leads to death.
(Proverbs 11:19 Holman Christian Standard Bible ®©)

For those whose lives are according to the flesh think about the things of the flesh, but those whose lives are according to the Spirit, about the things of the Spirit. For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace.
