Daily devotional: Get counsel!

Scripture
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.

Proverbs 15:22 NIV


Observation
Sometimes we think we know the best plan of action, and other times we don't have a good plan. In either case, whether it is a major life decision, marriage or parenting related, or even business decisions, we are much better off getting wise counsel than going it alone.

Application
Have advisors in my life and seek their advice rather than just going about my plans on my own.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for putting wise advisors into my life. I pray that You would lead me to more advisors and the right one(s) for each situation. Please don't let me get arrogant, thinking I can do it all myself. Please help me remember all Your counsel too, exactly when I need it. Holy Spirit, please grant me Your divine revelation and wisdom each time I need it. I belong to You, and I hope to always seek You first above all else and all others. I love you, Lord!
