How exciting is it that the ultimate Counselor is the very counselor of your life?
If you ever find yourself wishing you had a relationship expert or an expert on how to deal with certain issues with your friends, do not forget to go before your Heavenly Father, the One who knows all.
Sometimes, in the moments where you’re looking at a troubling issue within your friend group or you’re watching someone suffer and you have no idea how to help, you might be thinking you don’t have any other options. Perhaps, there’s something going on in your family that you have no idea how to deal with anymore. While God does send people into our lives to encourage us and share wisdom, allow yourself to be encouraged by what God has to say to you first.
Pray every single day, and be specific. Let Him know you’re worried about a particular person or situation. Let Him know you struggle being patient with your brother or sister. Even though you don’t necessarily know how God is going to speak to you, know that He will speak to you. He has been faithful in this way for generations and generations. Because of His grace, you too can benefit from His wonderful counsel.
