It is a beautiful blessing to get wise, caring counsel. It’s particularly helpful when you’re in real trouble. A word spoken in the right way at the right time to a suffering friend is like a cup of cold water in the desert.
If we are wise, we will not stop in any decision until we have found the counsel of God. This comes through fervent study of His Word, surrendered listening to His Spirit, and a listening ear to the counsel from those around us who know God’s Word and can give wise counsel. These three means are like three lighthouses in a row that can give us clarity about anything and everything.
