Counselor’s a name given to a person, who has studied to help encourage another person through advise. Even the word counsel means to give advice, or direction. (Thompson Exhaustive Bible) Counsel advice, direction. What kind of advice seems to work the best for us? Whom do we seek out for the clearest advice? Why do we seek this particular person for advice?
The answers mostly given to these questions above should have trust. I trust this person because, they have something to say about my problem. Which would give you a better understanding of your problem?
A. Man’s idea of what would help you?
B. God’s enlightenment of seeing your problem in a different light?
Only by enlightenment of God’s answer to our questions, can we truly begin understanding our problems. God gives us divine counselling through prayer, seeking answers in His Word, or maybe through a stranger, whom He sent to help you. God already has our best interest in his plans for us, he designed us to seek Him, when He breathed life into man.
Many have asked questions about God, seeking to discredit His word, wanting to continue in their sins, then enter heaven at the end of their lives without God. God gives divine counsel to all those, who truly desire His Will to be done. As we seek Him for truth, we find answers to our problems and questions through God’s divine enlightenment given to us.
God enlightens us through His Holy Spirit of understanding, giving a word through his apostle’s, prophets, evangelist, ministers, teachers, these are the body of Christ, coming together to work as he instructs us. Hearing God’s word come to life, as God voice speak’s to us gives new meaning to counsel. God speaks to a willing heart who listens,(if we reject Him) then we have rejected His counsel for our life.
Talking with others about different problems will make us become confused, for advice is freely given. Many times God will place someone in our life to give directional words for us. God already knows our needs, of whatever kind they may be. He tells us in his word to watch and pray, asking of Him directional advice we need. Man only has a limited knowledge of how to deal with, or give advice to another person. God has unlimited knowledge for us, as we seek His divine counsel.
Our sweet counsel comes from God, as we sit listening to Him speak to us. We may sit in silence for a few moments, but when we desire God and His godly wisdom, He comes to us with enlightened Words for us to hear. Truth is found in God’s word, His Spirit will always bear witness with His Word, for Jesus is the living Word inside our hearts. Psalm 16: 7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night season. KJV
Psalm 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. KJV
Holy Father teaches us within our Spirit, He dwells inside the heart as our Lord when we allow Him full control. Deep understanding takes our time with Him to be intense and worshiping Him in beauty of His presence. We should always give God reverence, standing in awe of His glory, while praising him continually in our hearts.
Psalm 73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. KJV
Truth is found in the gates of the LORD, worshiping at His feet and standing in His presence. We as a Christian need to desire God’s counseling above all else for in Him is Truth and righteous judgment for us. We need to walk bold and unmoved in His Spirit rebuking the enemy while agreeing with God for His will to be done in our lives. Great is His reward and He will bring it with Him when he comes.
Let not the world and darkness fill your heart with doubt, or fear. Our God knows all things both great and small in our lives and helps us to overcome the world and darkness through His Light. Precious is every word of God given to us even those we hear on a personal level God’s word is not void, but will go forth where He sends it. His Word will always accomplish God’s plan.
Jeremiah 32:19 Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:
Receive counsel of God into thy heart, hearing what He has planned for your life, worship him in Spirit and in Truth as He enlightens us, while growing our faith stronger in Him. Glory to God in the Highest, His peace reigns in our hearts, His Spirit writes upon our heart His truth, Mercy He has given us, let us rejoice and be glad Jesus is coming back soon.
I leave this last verse with you as an encouragement of Jesus’ words.
Revelation 3: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thy eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. KJV
Great is the counseling of the LORD, for in His word all things become clear. There is no confusion in His Word. God will bring us forth tried as gold in fire, washed and cleansed from sins, there will be no spot or wrinkle upon the bride’s garment, We are a holy people bought with God’s purchase of Love.
JESUS is our LORD and He will come and redeem us unto Himself. Amen.
