COUNSEL – advice given especially as a result of consultation; guarded thoughts or intentions
Life can present us with challenges and decisions that are not easy to make on our own. We may pray about the situation and read God’s Word for guidance, but still feel confused and uncertain about the direction we should take. In these times, it can be helpful to seek the counsel of other wise and godly people.
Scripture: Proverbs 19:21
“Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord will stand.”
“A fool despises good counsel, but a wise man takes it to heart.”
