I Samuel 26:1-28:25 / John 11:1-57 / Psalm 117:1-2 / Proverbs 15:22-23

Standout Verse:
Proverbs 15:22
“Without counsel, plans go awry, but in the multitude of counselors they are established.”

The saying “you become the company you keep” is so true.  We must make it a priority to surround ourselves with men and women who are seeking the Lord with all their hearts…iron sharpening iron!  How incredible to know that when challenges come, there are comrades around us with maturing faith and life experience who are also hotly pursuing the Lord (as if life depended on it, BECAUSE IT DOES!!!). We will be able to glean their counsel and then take it to the Lord and ask Him to help us decipher the things He is calling us to do.  It is always important to note that as wonderful and refreshing as the counsel of “others” can be, it can also shoot us off in directions the Lord never intended us to go in.  Counsel from people should never replace us seeking the Lord and waiting on Him to lead us into His best for our lives!

Thank You Lord that we don’t have to live alone.  Help us see those people You want us to connect with so we can run this race with good, Godly company!
