I'm learning in this season of my ministry to not look for validation from people when I should be more concerned with pleasing God. People have the tendency of validating you one day and pulling you down the next, if not sooner. If God "pulls" you down that means you're in error. God does not seek to embarrass us but to keep us on the right path; however, when we fail to yield to the leading of His Spirit then you become a public spectacle. God didn't do it, you did it to yourself. God is re-teaching me so many things that I thought I knew but I am a student ready to learn from the Master Teacher. My eyes are being opened to a lot and my understanding have grown tremendously. Knowledge without understanding is just knowledge.
