How do I Know His Counsel?

From Jim Elliot, missionary and martyr (1956) in Ecuador:

"My going to Ecuador is God's counsel.... And how do I know it is His counsel? 'Yea, my heart instructeth me in the night seasons.' Oh, how good! For I have known my heart is speaking to me for God!...No visions, no voices, but the counsel of a heart which desires God."
