Each day we have decisions to make. Some are more important then others. What important decision are you having to make today? God wants to give you the answer. He wants to direct your steps. Many times, He will speak to you through the people He has placed in your life. The Bible says that safety is found in a multitude of advisers.

God designed us to live in families, communities, and congregations. We need to be open to receiving input from the people who are close to us. That doesn’t mean you have to follow everything everyone tells you; but if you’re in a situation or relationship, and all the people around you are giving you the same word of caution, it might be God trying to get a message to you. Take that advice and bring it before the Lord in prayer. Ask Him to confirm his plan and direction in whatever situation you are facing. Remember, wisdom comes from God, and wise counsel will always be in agreement with His Word. He will always confirm the answer when you ask him. 

Whatever you are facing today, be open to receiving wise counsel. As you do, you will be blessed and protected, and you will walk in confidence down the path the Lord has prepared for you!
