Every subject will have layers of understanding. It is wise to discern the heart of God in a matter before we make a decision or provide an answer that could negatively affect a relationship or alter the direction of our life.
God’s heart on a subject is the deepest and purest place of revelation. It requires patience to dive into that deep place. From there, once we discern His heart, we can work our way back to the surface of the moment where an important question was asked of us that required a response.
This journey into the heart of God is a deep dive. It requires we move through and many times push aside, our personal opinion, emotions, and personality traits, not allowing them to become the prominent voice in our response.
