Galatians 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, 16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,

When Paul got a revelation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Paul was given the assignment to preach among the Gentiles. After he was given his assignment, he didn’t consult with others to determine if this was the right thing to do. He just acted.

When God gives us revelation of our assignment, our responsibility is to act. Asking others their opinion regarding a known God-given assignment is unwise. People may feel like they’re trying to “protect” us by giving us all the reasons why we shouldn’t fulfill our assignment, they may give us advice that deviates from God’s instructions, or they may mock our assignment because it seems impossible.

Whatever God has revealed to you regarding your assignment (preaching, opening a business, promotion at your job, etc.), the wisest option may be to not consider the opinion of others.
