This is really cool! I love it when I know that I am hearing from the same God the leaders are!
Some time ago a phrase came to me when I was journaling to hear from God. It was dealing with stepping out and taking a risk.
The question was, does it take faith, and does it take courage?
So I am to look at choice or step in front of me and ask myself, will this take faith, will it take courage? If not this probably is not of God. Because only faith brings God joy. And it takes courage to act on that faith! This was new to me, all the “church” I grew up in you just had to have faith, if it failed it was your little faith. They had no real answer for me!
Now that I can hear from God myself I can really understand what He wants for me instead of some dumb idea that you just need more faith!
