Faith Seeks Counsel Pt 4

Godly counsel is timeless!

You ever take notice that when the word of God is given in regard to wisdom counsel that its probably been shared for many many years in all different senarios and times of the world.

His word is firm, true, and timeless. Just as people heard Jesus impart we hear that same inpartation of wisdom to counsel us through things.

How say perhaps your great great great relative may have been given Jeremiah 29:11 just as we are given it today for example. Gods wisdom had been passed from generation to generation.

The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
Psalms 33:11 NASB

Gods word reveals the plans of His heart for us. As my Pastor brought out in a few sessions now a man may plan his steps but the Lord guides Proverbs 16:9.

God has a plan for us to give us hope and a future. He has a will for our life to fulfill a kingdom purpose in the earth. He uses trials to bring about patience and other fruits. For it all works together for the good.

The thing of it is as Pastor Juanita Gibbs brought out Wednesday night is that our will has to submit and surrender to Gods will to see Hid kingdom manifest in our life.

We hold the keys but dont know how to use them. We have to align with His word and His will to see His kingdom come on earth as it is already done in heaven.

Many hold the keys to the kingdom, but surrendered vessels that align with Gods word and Will know how to use the keys propert to lock and unlock kingdom principles.

Juanita Gibbs

This way the councel we take in now to being us into that alignment can set us on course to flow freely from heaven to earth and it will help with all generations to come to know the heart and plans of God for His people.

Faith Seeks Counsel Pt 3

Wisdom is to be shared not hoarded!

Many times when things happen in our life and we go through them alone. Then the same situation happens to someone else and they come to you for wisdom, but you if anything like I have been bitter at heart didn’t want to share the wisdom that was gained by the trial.

Sometimes it even came to my mind they weren’t there for you in your trial, but they want you to be there for them. Let them learn the hard wisdom like you had to learn it, no one held your hand in it. Let them see how it feels.

All those things revealed the bitterness of heart and they are not how God set things up to be. Granted, no we should have people that we can talk to in things, but what if you don’t have anyone? Turn to God. In some seasons of my life before God gave me people, He was my best friend.

Then God gave me people and I had to work through some inner issues about allowing people into my life and world where no one had gone before. He had me walk through certain things to not only shape me, but to also grow in wisdom in areas that could be imparted to others.

“Do you hear the secret counsel of God, And limit wisdom to yourself?
Job 15:8 NASB

I not only heard secret counsel and partook of it, but I hoarded(limited) the counsel for myself in cases when it could have helped lighten the burden of another.

God has to work on my heart to get me healed of the bitterness of heart, gain some understanding as to why people can’t be there for others in trial, and learn to open up and share wisdom to those who have an ear to hear it.

That in part is kind of why I blog to share encouragement to others going through things like I have or am going through. To show there is a light at the end of the matter. As well as, to not keep counsel secret and just to myself.

Now, some wisdom does have to be tailored to match the circumstance of an individual, but there will always be an underlying chord of similarity that can be shared to help another out.

I am so very thankful for the wisdom that has been imparted to me by my Pastor Juanita Gibbs. She has given freely of it without withholding and her encouragement to blog has been one I am thankful for also. She has helped me come from under that bitterness and share what I can to this audience.

Faith Seeks Councel Pt 2

The heart of man plans his course. But God directs each step.

For years I have planned my life out and nothing has gone according to those plans. God had sonething different in mind.

When I allowed my relationship with God to become more a focus in my life His leading my steps became very noticeable the more.

I may have had a plan to do something God had other plans of course. He knew I needed some growth and culitvation in areas before somethings I planned out I could walk in. God knows what is best and see’s the real deal.

Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed.
Proverbs 15:22 NASB

Of course most of my plans were made within my will and not His. When God brought Godly counsel in my life it has begun to help shift me to where He wants me to be.

By the counsel that I have received from my Pastor Juanita Gibbs it has helped me begin to grow in my personhood (character), womanhood (Godly woman) and workin me toward my purpose.

By taking on this counsel it has helped me in my teaching of the children I work with, it has helped me transform my blog style into finding my message. Its through counsel we will find success.

By thinking we have obtained it all without counsel, which yes I have done is pride. God cant work with pride, keeping humble and taking counsel is the way of success.
