Everyone’s spiritual journey is different. This idea that God will move the same way that He moved for the person you admire, or look up spiritually is setting yourself up for disappointment. God is going to move the way He wants. He is unpredictable on how He chooses to bless us, He can use anyone or anything or both.
It’s nice to admire other people’s walk with God, but do NOT make a rule out of it. Let it inspire you to cultivate your own personal relationship with God.
