This is something I’ve looked for in reading various lives of the saints: Did they ever doubt their mystical experiences? Did Noah spend years building the ark wondering if he was crazy? Did Jonah wonder if he had really been told to go to Nineveh? Did Joan of Arc question what she was hearing and experiencing?
When we read these stories, they all seem absolutely secure in their confidence it was God speaking to them yet I think most people today, if they heard a voice tell them to build an ark, would question their sanity.
I think it would be helpful to people today to know if these people were absolutely sure or if they questioned and if so, what drove them to listen to those inner promptings anyway. But I’ve been unable to find this information anywhere.
