Today's Verse/Thought: Lining Up the Factors, 3-Affirming With Counsel
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Prov. 15:22
There is nothing worse then going through life bent on having it your way. We need each other for advice and counsel. This is true in business, family situations, church and especially with regard to finding God's plan for your life.
Unless what God is saying to you is being affirmed through wise, godly counsel-don't move ahead!
Consider all of what God may be revealing to you through the Word, His voice and your circumstances and submit them to godly people who will pray and give you their advice. God is not a God of disorder. If it is Him then He will affirm it through others.
The key is to find mature believers who will pray and seek God on your behalf. Your job is to pray for that they receive clear and divine counsel from Him. Depending upon the magnitude of your decision I suggest involving at least three or four trustworthy believers or couples. Be sure not to include anyone who may be impacted by the outcome.
