Here is an excerpt that really touched me and I want to share it.
"My going to Ecuador is God's counsel, as is my leaving Betty, and my refusal to be counseled by all who insist I should stay and stir up the believers in the U.S. And how do I know it is His counsel? 'Yea, my heart instructeth me in the night seasons.' Oh, how good! For I have known my heart is speaking to me for God!...No visions, no voices, but the counsel of a heart which desires God." (page 14)
This is an excerpt from the journal of Jim Elliot.
Oh, to have the courage to have faith like that.
