Who do you have in your life that holds you accountable to behave from a Biblical baseline? Who speaks to your spirit with words crafted in prayer and produced from a pure heart? If we are to engage the enemy effectively we need many advisers with credible answers. As you ask, listen for a theme in their counsel. This is the truth to follow. You will foresee the dangers and discern the advantages. Wise counsel wins out.
Godly guidance gives you the grace to go far by faith. Your growth in grace allows you to understand what’s best. “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen” (2 Peter 3:18). Insight from others is an instrument they acquire from their intimacy with Christ. Go to those who have been with Jesus and you will hear from Jesus. He speaks through prayerful people.
Moreover, request people you respect to pray for you to gain God’s perspective, “We have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding” (Colossians 1:9). God’s guidance gives you everything you need to move forward by faith. There is victory in Jesus, so engage in spiritual warfare with your Savior and His advisers. Who can I seek out for wisdom and guidance? Am I listening with a humble heart to wise advisors?
