Seeking Direction

While many jobs and careers require others to give us their opinions, thoughts, critiques, and judgements, we can choose God’s wisdom above them all. When it comes to how we lead our very lives, God also wants His children to seek Him (James 1:5). This is because God knows that not all counsel is godly (Psalm 1).

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6

When we realize that God knows us better than we know ourselves and that He knows what we need (Jeremiah 29:11), we can surrender to the knowledge that this is also true for those around us. As a result, we can choose to give others godly counsel and not our own thoughts.

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. James 3:17

Without question, godly counsel relies on the Holy Spirit for direction. It relies upon prayer and seeking guidance from the Holy Bible. Most importantly, godly counsel keeps all of the focus on God, His will, and His way.

In closing, there is no wisdom against the Lord (Proverbs 21:30). Daily, He gives wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to those who ask for it (Proverbs 2:6). Finally, Daniel 2:21 declares that God changes the times and seasons and removes and establishes kings. What a mighty God!
