Whether your vision is met with cheers or jeers, outside opinion cannot be your sustenance. Man cannot live by bread alone, and he certainly can’t survive on a steady diet of attaboys. He who lives by the approval of others will die by the absence of the same.
A high calling often exacts a high price. But it always yields an astronomical return. When God comes toward you with the flint knife, remember that he’s not out to hurt you. He’s aligning your desires with his desires so that he can accomplish the impossible in your life.
The key to unlocking your audacity is not to take the most bizarre risk you can think of, then blame the outcome on God. The key is getting a clear and correct view of God, believing that God is actually who he says he is. And that he can do what he says he can do.
