Godly Counsel

Do people periodically ask you for advice? Do you sometimes lack confidence that your counsel is the best that it could be? How can you be prepared when God guides you to give help and hope to someone in need? Never go against the Word of God, even if it means going against the grain of public acceptance. 

Regardless of what the world says is right, you will never go wrong when you stay true to God’s Word.

“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.”
(Psalm 1:1–2)

The more you know God’s Word, the more you will know what God wants you to do, and the more you have God’s Word in your mind, the wiser you will be. When talking with a person about a problem, first ask yourself, Has God already spoken directly about this in His Word? If so, what has He said? If not, is there a general biblical principle that needs to be considered? The deeper your dependence on the Word of God, the wiser you will be.

“A man of understanding delights in wisdom.”
(Proverbs 10:23)
