Why do we trust the opinion of others more than we trust God?
Many times when people feel they hear from the Lord, they ask others what they think. They are taking a poll. The fear of what people will think or their lack of understanding of who God is has the ability to quickly stomp out the dream that God placed in you.
Oh, I know this to be true. As I was building The Marketplace, so many people told me I would fail. If I actually listened to the polling results, I would never have started this crazy adventure.
I have learned early on to surround myself with a core group of people who know who God is. I seek their wise counsel and begin the process of praying to figure out what need to do to make it happen!
You see some people don’t know who God is. They believe He doesn’t speak anymore or that certain situations are beyond Him. I can tell you He still speaks, He still moves, and He still performs miracles.
If God has placed in you a dream, He will see it through. Your job? Believe AND do your part.
