For years after I answered the call to ministry I seemed to be floundering around, trying to find my way. I took many twists and turns and made many foolish mistakes, and this continued until I discovered the fathering principle. When I finally did discover it, I wondered how I could have been ignorant of it so long. God calls, but man confirms. I thought I knew what I was supposed to do and how to do it, but it didn’t work out that way. I was on my own, a child in the ministry, trying to make adult decisions, and many of the decisions I made didn’t bear fruit. I first needed to find my spiritual father, and I needed to begin teaching others to do the same. Only then would I (and they) begin to prosper.
