"For unto us a child is born, unto us a child is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
IN JESUS TODAY!
Without counsel we try to work things out in our mind about what is the best way to do things, we establish our own guidelines based upon what we have heard others do or say, and we practice what seems to be right in our heart and mind hoping that all will work out. Getting advice is not bad. We all need advice from time to time about the matters of life and there are many people that stand ready to give it. Seeking counsel is a good thing, but who gives us counsel is where we need to have concern.
There are some people that will do everything else before they would ever ask anyone to help them, but this is not wise, as we read,
"Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established."
Again, whoever gives us the counsel is where we need to have concern. While there are many that can give advice, not all advice is good advice. It is very important to have the right counselor when seeking advice. Jesus has already been established as the Wonderful Counselor because His advice has stood the test of time. His counsel is perfect!
His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor! He is always there to guide us and to help us establish His purposes in our life.
Jesus Is Our Wonderful Counselor, Take Council In Him!
