When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”

      (John 21:21 NIV)


Never think that God will divinely deputize someone to tell you about what is going on in your life. No one needs to confirm or affirm you; let the Lord do that. Every so often, the Lord will send someone to affirm something in your life, but it is only after He Himself has revealed it to you. That person is not the Holy Spirit, who reveals God’s will for your life. This is not a reduction of the divine; it is merely an instructional warning against playing with the destiny of God’s people.
