We all have our own ideas when it comes to life and ministry. But we should remember that we are not of our own as Apostle Paul said it in 1 Corinthians 6:9-20 ‘’What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
When it comes to your purpose in life and ministry do not confer with flesh and blood (Galatians 1:16, 17) but always consult your Creator. With an open heart, seek the counsel of godly men and women of deep commitment to prayer; these are the men and women of God who can give you true spiritual counsel. But ultimately, you need to be sensitive to the inward witness in your personal life; you must be personally led by the Holy Spirit. Do not just rely on good ideas from your own mind or from other people, good ideas are not always God ideas and if they don’t align with God’s plan and purpose for your life, they are doomed to failure.

Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. Luke 5:4 -5
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8 -9
