So the problem with impressions is not that they are subjective. The problem is in assuming they are from the Lord. Here’s my profound wisdom on the matter: Impressions are impressions. They are not in a special category. Don’t confuse impressions, hunches, and subjective feelings with certain words from the Lord. If a thought or impulse pops into your head, even if it happens while reading Scripture, don’t assume it is a voice from heaven (Kevin DeYoung, Just Do Something, loc. 911).
