"Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war." Proverbs 20:18
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
How do you know if you have heard from God? Let's consider a few things. Even Jesus was told to move and prove that He had faith in God. "And he, (the devil) brought Him, (Jesus) to Jerusalem and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple and said unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from thence: For it is written, He shall give His angels charge over thee." Luke 4:9,10 You see the devil would love us to listen to him instead of God, so how will we know when it's God? We must seek counsel! Mathew 18:16 tells us..."that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established." Now on a personal level, to the delight of the devil, I have made many mistakes because I thought I heard it from God and moved without seeking counsel. Friends, don't do it! Always ask God and ask the counsel of other strong Christians!
“Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14
THIS DAY IN DEVOTION:
