Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.
Psalms 73: 23-24
Isaiah 9:6 gives an amazing name to our Lord; Wonderful Counselor. His perfect wisdom can and will guide us through all the things we face on this earth. All we need to do is to let him in.
Many listen to the counsel of their family or friends, who are as meek and have less understanding compared to the Almighty. A good Christian counselor is a great and priceless source to share with us the counsel of Almighty God. However, you know that the human counselor that we are relying upon is not always going to be available - no matter how hard they try to be! We need to get into the Holy Bible. Almighty God is always available to us all the time no matter what! I am sure that there was and never will be a time when we call out to Almighty God that we do not receive a personal reply.
The God who created this Universe, the God who holds all things together, the God who is in every way perfect, Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent makes Himself available to us at all times and in all circumstances! Think about it!! Isn’t that wonderful!
Jesus has said, ’I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.’" No matter what we are dealing with; and, no matter where we have been, Almighty God is here to listen to us, to counsel us! We need to be praying before we get into a mess, before we get lost, before our trials and tribulations come! The best future is for those who are spiritually aligned to follow Almighty God’s counsel for life and not for those who are indifferently bent on achieving their own ends.
When we seek Almighty God’s face through prayer when we seek Almighty God’s face through the Holy Bible and when we act upon the direction that He has given us. Peace of mind and heart that Jesus promises come to us when we seek Almighty God’s counsel. The reason so many Christians are dejected today is because they neglect His Counsel!
Lets seek the counsel of the Almighty today!!
