10:57 PM Just got back home after doing an hour of live TV with Jerry Rose on the Total Living Network. We took calls from viewers about discovering God’s will. Strangest call: Do you think God gives unusual supernatural gifts such as the ability to make a phone ring when no one is calling? Answer: No. What would be the point of such a “gift”? Spiritual gifts are given to build up the body of Christ, not to play parlor games. Someone else asked about dreams and visions. Jerry was very strong on the point that all dreams and visions must be tested by the Word of God. God will never contradict himself by giving a vision that goes against the written Word. We spent a lot of time stressing that the will of God is not primarily about what we do or where we go. It’s about knowing God deeply and intimately. Sometimes we need to slow down our hectic lives in order to hear God’s voice. That’s a good word for all of us Type A personalities.
