When I’ve followed what God has shown me, I have often experienced the confirmation of heaven in astounding, supernatural ways. But at times when I’ve veered off that course because of what others told me was best, I’ve nearly lost everything.
We should always seek and receive counsel. But in the end, we must live according to the voice of God in our own hearts, according to the light that we each have, the light of our own convictions and conscience. We are each responsible for ourselves and we will one day give an account for our own lives and decisions.
Abraham followed one voice against all odds. Moses followed one voice which many others must have initially viewed as insanity. Your potential lies within your willingness to follow God regardless of whether others understand it or not. If you want to see the fulfillment of all that God has for you, you must learn to follow one voice.
