“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.” – Philippians 1:9-10
Sometimes influencers not only have their influence attacked…sometimes the attacks get personal: deception, rumors, veiled threats, intimidation. Nehemiah has a knack for sniffing out the evil intentions of those offering to “help” him. How does he do it? Discernment is the key and every influencer needs it. It comes when we are consistently getting filled up with God’s selfless love for us. Are you staying full? Read Nehemiah 6:1-9, Philippians 1:1b-11, and Matthew 10:16-22.
