Don’t base everything that you believe in on what you’ve been told by someone. You are meant to know Him, follow Him, believe what He says about you and you can’t do that if you don’t know Him, see Him or hear Him.
He is calling you to full surrender. To seek His face as if nothing else matters. You matter to Him, more than anything. Knowing Him, loving Him is critical to your wellbeing, your eternal wellbeing.
