The Bible uses the metaphor “rod and staff” to describe God’s guidance and protection.
We must get comfortable with the guidance of the word of God and prioritize it above other forms of guidance.
Simple ways to identify false prophets/leading:
– If a message contradicts the word of God.
– If the end game is money.
Get grounded in the scriptures.
Having an opinion that doesn’t side with the word of God is unintentionally rejecting divine guidance.
