Learning to use the gift of prophecy can be exciting, but it can also feel nerve-wracking and make us hesitant. Hearing God’s voice for ourselves is one thing, but trying to do the same for someone else is another matter.
If we make a mistake with our own lives, then we can pick ourselves up and start again. If another person is involved, then we may feel an overwhelming sense of responsibility. Alongside that, we may not be sure how to handle what we hear.
The good news is that there is a framework to help us out. I call it the four steps, or the four stages of prophecy.
