In every area of life, feedback from others is fundamentally needed to help us grow and develop our gifts and skills. There is a saying that goes, “Feedback is the breakfast of champions!” This is also true concerning our spiritual gifts of prophecy and discernment.
At the end of the day, if we don’t know how to improve and sharpen our spiritual gifts—and the manner in which we use them—we will not reach our truest potential. It’s not that we are the source of these gifts, but it is that we’re the stewards of these gifts that we seek to grow them.
Feedback is important because when we recognize and acknowledge our blind spots, we are able to address them. We can never identify our own blind spots. Moreover, we also learn from the wisdom of others who are already ahead of us on the journey.
Our ability to communicate clearly to others what God has spoken to us is sharpened when we receive feedback from elder prophets. Moreover, Godly feedback provides confirmation of our prophetic insight, which benefits us and those to whom we are ministering.
Through feedback, we can assess the degree to which the ministry is helpful. You can also ensure that there is no gap—or misunderstanding—between what you have heard from God (regarding His heart and purposes for a person or for a situation), and what the person has actually received and understood through your prophetic word.
Ministry feedback can come from the following people:
- A person you share a prophetic insight with;
- A leader, pastor, or spiritual overseer in the situation you are ministering in;
- A mentor or fellow team member.
