Genesis 3:5 “For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Leader, I bless you with discernment to recognise the half-truths – more dangerous than lies – couched as good advice from others. I bless you with instinctively weighing each word against what you know about God’s character and your journey with Him. And if you do not have that frame of reference, I bless you with being keenly aware of His Spirit stirring peace in you or caution. I bless you with wisdom to spot the traps others might set for you for whatever reason – competition, disrespect, ignorance, etc. I bless you with good, honest, gracious council. I bless you with guarding your eyes, ears and heart from things that negatively impact you. Be selective with what you allow into your space, with what/who you allow to speak into your life. I bless you with seeing God’s fingerprints in every day, with open eyes to see His beauty in a new way and to experience Him as wholly set apart from how the world/business/politics operates. I bless you with fearless determination to make your mark in the world as He shows you the best way.
