In this day and age we hope to surround ourselves with Entrepreneurs that have the gift of discernment. With all the money games in the marketplace it is sometimes hard to see what is really an opportunity or a debt trap. Someone with the gift of discernment is able to convey why a direction may be false or why this is a direction we must head. An entrepreneur with this gift (or any other) can lead people in a wrong direction or in the right direction.
I like to look at the persons motives. Are they money motivated or love motivated? Are they self-sacrificing or making decisions to benefit only themselves? Gifts manifest themselves as talents or natural inclinations…they can not be erased from ones being. However, they can become skills by the continued experience. Examine an individuals personal track record to determine the direction that is most appropriate for your life.
See Acts 5:3-6, Acts 16:16-18
People with this Gift:
- distinguish truth from error, right from wrong, pure motives from impure
- identify deception in others with accuracy and appropriateness
- determine whether a word attributed to God is authentic
- recognize inconsistencies in a teaching, prophetic message, or interpretation
- and able to sense the presence of evil
BTW…. remember I said that gifts can not be erased? What I mean by that is a gift can develop ones skills and talents. One can have the gift of giving or of serving/helping and they have developed the talent of singing. When they sing they subconsciously (maybe consciously) feel at peace… they feel happy…. this may because they are giving or serving others. The talent of singing could be lost, but the gifts of giving and serving or part of you!
The reason for you not being able to lose a gift is God does not take back what he has given. Gifts can go unused, unopened or they can be practiced and mastered. Let me help you use your gifts in all areas of your life…reach out and contact me.
