Need Advice?

Jun 16, 2023

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6:33

There are many vocations focused on problem solving: consultants, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, practitioners, advisors, life-coaches, mentors, and more. Some may be biblically focused, but most use secular approaches to solving problems.

Because Christians live in the world, it is hard not to be influenced by how the world approaches life – which is generally not from a biblical perspective. We have to constantly remember that no one knows as much about our life, our circumstances, and the solutions we need, than God.

While we may end up getting helpful advice from a consultant of some sort, our first counselor should be God. If you need wisdom or guidance today, begin with God. Start by asking Him to direct your thoughts and your steps: “Lord, You know my situation and my need. I begin with You, asking for You to be involved in this with me. Give me Your wisdom; help me choose the right path; show me Your purposes; reveal to me any error on my part. If You want me to get help from others, please show me who to talk to.”
