"We need to compare any idea, prompting, or thought that comes to us with God's Word. If we don't know the Word, we won't have anything to measure theories and arguments that rise up in our thoughts. The enemy can present wild ideas that make sense to us.
The fact that thoughts are logical doesn't mean they are from God. We may like what we hear, but the fact that something appeals to us doesn't mean it's from God. We may hear something that feels good to our emotions, but if it fails to give us peace it is not from God.
God's advice to us is to always follow peace and let it be an umpire in our lives." -- Joyce Meyer, Hearing From God Each Morning (February 11 entry)
