“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14 ESV
People without guidance will experience a downfall but those who receive counsel will find guidance and security.
If you have ever ventured in the woods you will quickly learn the importance of a compass. Compasses always point to the true north, no matter where you are. It is a guide in the darkiest of night and the brightest of days. With it you can find your way home and to safety, without it you might wander endlessly in the wilderness.
God’s Word and His guidance are the compass in our lives. As proverbs states, “in an abundance of counselors, there is safety”. God’s Word makes avaiable to us many authors who had an encounter with God. Each author and book serves as a counselor within our lives. We will never go wrong listening to the counsel of God’s Word.
Lord may we listen to the counsel of Your Word. In it we will find life and wisdom to guide our daily decisions. As our good shepherd lead us to the safety of your counsel.
