Living a righteous life is not guesswork but grace work.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. (1 Thessalonians 5:21 KJV)
Proving means to test the nature of a person or situation. To prove is to determining through aggressive spiritual testing that which is good and pleasing and in line with God’s precepts and commandments. Not everything which is presented as godly is of God. Many things are cloaked in a seemingly godly spirit but are cleverly disguised rouses coming from the god of this world. Anything that is disguised as godly but is naturally dark and evil will show its true colors when the testing heat and fire of God is applied. Only things of God can pass a testing of spirits and be left standing intact. Things from the god of this world melt and fade away at the first sign of heat and fire.
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. (Ephesians 5:10 KJV)
A child of God is called to prove those things which are acceptable. This process involves using spiritual discernment which resides or dwells within every spiritually quickened alive to determine what is biblical and right according to His Word and not according to the ideas and traditions of man.
