I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.
Is discernment simply there for the asking? I think of discernment as knowing, or having a good sense of, whether something is in line with God's will. This can be much more difficult than it sounds. At least it is often difficult for me. When we are faced with such a question, or a decision, it makes total sense to go to God in prayer over the situation. Unfortunately, this is where I often veer off and wrestle with my indecision for several days. Discernment comes from God! When I remember to include the Holy Spirit in my decision-making, I am much more likely to be closer to God's will.
Holy Lord, May your Spirit be actively with me every moment, guiding and teaching me. Grant me discernment. Amen
