What is discernment ? It is a knowing that comes deep within, from the soul. With discernment, it's using your better judgement, wisdom to make a determination about something or a particular situation. This is my definition of discernment, and I can say that the more I press into GOD, the better discernment I have. The Holy Spirit lives evidently inside me and I allow him to be the driving force in my decision making. Let the Holy Spirit guide and lead you in your life.
