The Lord impressed upon my heart… The Lord told me… The Lord is calling me to... The Lord is leading me to… These are common church speak when making decisions. The crew has been led to offer some thoughts on them. Is strong conviction or impression the same as God calling? Is there a place for “calling”? What does it look like, and how do we know it’s real? Are there dangers in believing that God is calling one to do this or that? And is “feeling a peace about it” an accurate indicator?

There’s no question that God leads His people through sovereign providence, but do we really have an infallible insight into that? Let’s listen in about sanctifying wisdom and the role other believers play in our decision making!
