Devotional: Without counsel plans go askew


Devotional: Without counsel plans go askew

Without counsel plans go askew, but with many counselors, they are established. (Proverbs 15:22)

This shows us that it is good to have trusted advisors who can speak into your life and help you make good decisions. 

Therefore thank God for your mentors and start taking their advice seriously. Emulate Queen Esther because she took the advice of her uncle Mordechai seriously when the Jews were facing annihilation even though she had not told anyone that she was a Jew. As a result, she was able to save the Jews and their enemy was destroyed.
Without counsel plans go askew but with many counselors they are established. Proverbs 15:22

If you do not have a human mentor, begin cultivating relationships with people you trust who are more experienced in ministry, marriage or in whatever else you may need mentorship in. 

In addition, consult Jesus as your Mentor in addition to being your counselor because His name shall be called Wonderful,  Counselor. (Isaiah 9:6) 
His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace Isaiah 9:6

Combine this with reading your Bible and using it as another counselor because All Scripture is inspired by God and it is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and instructing in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16) 


Prayer 

Heavenly Father I thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to help me when I need the help of Wonderful Counselor. I thank you also for the Holy Spirit and His gifts which can help me make the right decisions in my life.

Father God thank you for Your Word because it is also a spiritual counselor since it teaches and corrects me. 

Father God I ask You in the name of Jesus to lead me to the people you would like to be my human counselors and help me to be teachable and correctable. Amen.
