1 Corinthians 12:10 (NKJV)
to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
Emeka was about to enter an important business deal with a young man who was trying to market some goods to him. Because Emeka had never met the young man in person but only communicated with him online, he did not know why his spirit was uneasy about this business deal that was supposed to be one that would bring great profit. The day Emeka met the young man with whom he was to enter the business deal, he knew he was not going to proceed with the deal because he had the gift of discerning of spirits and had discerned that the young man had a wrong spirit. Later, Emeka learned that the young man was a fraud who had long left the company he claimed to represent. Emeka’s business was saved because he had the gift of ‘discerning of spirits’.
‘Discerning of spirits’ is a spiritual gift that enables those who have it know the nature of spirits they are dealing with. Because all human beings are spirit beings, those who have this gift can discern the true nature of people they come in contact with.
This is the spiritual gift that can make a person enter a room and discern that there are unclean spirits in that room, or there are angels. Like every spiritual gift, the operation of this gift in people is in levels and degrees. For example, every believer has an angel (see Matt 18:10, Ps 91:11, Heb 1:14), but those who have a heightened level of this spiritual gift may even be able to discern their angels, and discern the presence of other angels and even demons, etc.
Go into today asking the Lord for a higher measure of the spiritual gift you have received.
