Proverbs 15:22 (ESV) Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.
If you are serious about your spiritual growth, then you’ll need wise counselors in your life. Even Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, recognized the need for wise and godly counsel. In our relationship with the Lord we need not only counsel from the Lord, we also need counsel from choice people in our lives that have our best interest at heart. Do you have trusted choice people in your life who provide real talk to you and for you?
Turning to trustworthy counselors in times of confusion or uncertainty can help you preserve your spiritual strength and life in the Lord. In the book of Proverbs, Solomon gave this advice, ” He also said, “with many counselors there is safety.“(Proverbs11:14) Where else can you look for wise counsel? Solomon’s father David looked to God’s Word, saying, “Your decrees please me; they give me wise advice.” (Psalm 119:24).
Point to ponder- Wise Counsel can come from professionally trained pastors, counselors, or from people who understand your specific issues and care for you. Whatever the case, make certain to not neglect the need for counsel in your life. You’ll do yourself a great service if you seek the power of wise counsel. Have a fantastic weekend great family of God!
