Proverbs 4:26

Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.>And I even agree with confessing, that is, calling out what you believe God wants to happen (provided it doesn’t move into the area of presumption and/or manipulation).

She then told her readers that she waited to identify her source as God, because she knew that she would lose her readers if she started off talking about God.  And I’m okay with that strategy
