When a threat emerges, silence should not be prematurely interpreted as someone ignoring what is taking place. Some who are silent have been trained in spiritual warfare to assess a situation before they respond. To be spiritually aware requires more than natural situational awareness. It requires an accurate threat assessment followed by the ability to discern how the Lord wants us to respond. Too many believers are being impacted by “friendly” fire directed at the wrong target. This happens because we have not taken the time to rightly discern what spirit is directing our response.
