Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Charles believed that when he found the woman he wanted to marry, he was set for marital bliss. Right away he met with the girl’s parents and proceeded in a haste to do the wedding.
However, in failing to obtain some much needed premarital counsel, months into the wedding he and his wife were at the edge of divorce after several quarrels. It took God’s grace and several marriage counseling sessions to save his marriage.
A counselor is one who gives advice for the purpose of guidance or one who represents as a legal defense. Jesus manifested this name (Rabbi) on earth as he taught and defended his disciples from attacks by the Pharisees, etc (John 1:38, Matt 12:1-8).
Ignorance kills, but through counsel, one can avoid errors that lead to disaster (Hosea 4:6, Pro 11:14). However, not all counsels are of God. For this reason, it is very expedient that the right counsel is received at all times. This can only be found through the Person of the Holy Spirit who is sent in Jesus’ name to be our Counselor (John 14:26, Rom 8:26).
Therefore, for everything in life including the things we think are trivial, we must seek the counsel of the Spirit so that we can know the will of God and avoid walking in error.
Go into today knowing that the best counsel you will ever receive is to make Jesus your Lord and Savior. As you do so and abide in Him, your victory in life is assured.
