Seek Wise Counsel
Proverbs 20

Text: Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war (Prov. 20:18).

Learn and Apply: There are times you really don’t know what to do. You are not sure what step to take and where it will lead you. It could be a very important life decision you are contemplating – changing your location, getting married, or starting a family. Thankfully we know that in the multitude of counselors there is safety (Prov. 11:14), and that God has given his people wisdom to help direct us.

Knowing that you can’t handle life on your own, that you can’t live in isolation, will motivate you to seek wise counsel, to seek advice from those who have the lips of wise counsel.

Also, when faced with a difficult life decision, take it to God in prayer and believe that he’ll speak to you, through his servants, his word and even to your spirit through dreams.

As we seek wise counsel, may God reveal to us the very answers we need.

Pray: Thank you for your wisdom generously released unto us through your word, your servants, and those around us. Make me a channel of wise counsel to others in Jesus name.
