Being a prophet doesn’t mean you’re always in the right or accurate… but you may tend to think you are. Yeah I just went there… but that’s the truth. I know that because I always think I’m right, and experience has taught me that I often am… but not always. And that’s why prophets need to be in relationship with other prophets who see through our process and understand the way we are.
I’ll tell you another, often closely guarded, secret… apostles are not infallible; and neither are pastors, teachers, or evangelists. We all need strong believers around us who love us without an agenda and will share their perspective or opinion with us, even if it turns out they are wrong. Yeah I went there too… Because none of us are meant to function alone. A healthy body has many diverse parts that remain connected with a unity that only comes through surrender to the same Spirit. Together we are whole.
