God has laid something on my heart…

Do you ever cringe when someone says that God “told them something?”  I think I’ve decided to put my fingers in my ears and stop listening.

“Preachers” can be the worst at this telling me that God has “laid something on their heart.”  I am still a firm believer that the task of a pastor, when he gets up to speak to the church, is to communicate the intended meaning of the Scriptures.

If (and this is a huge if) God has “laid something on your heart,” then it sure better line up with the revealed message of God from the Scriptures.
