I was reading a devotional from a denomination who respect some bible books not recongized in the cannon. I tells for today that we should not trust on our own wisdom but seek the counsel of others. And I thought that was pretty fair. We need to take counsel from others when we need a decision to be made. But I think the best counsel is from prayer and turning the problem over to the Lord first and then maybe get a second opinion on whom the Lord touches to guide your life. It is important to examine the integrity of the one giving you counsel. We want someone who is sincere and truly helping. Experience is a big help. We need someone who's been there in the same situation and can guide us. Secular help is not bad. We need to know what science knows about it and certainly medical doctors know a lot about the body when it's about an illness. Physicologist know something about depression and can recommend some good drugs that can help the body when it can help itself. Professional advice is a good standby. Don't expect to pray away cancer or that God will take care of your slothful life. Talk to school counselor about proven guidelines for you children. Remember these are just guidelines. In the end ask God what is the best advice on a matter. But avail yourself all the information availiable before making a trip or decision. But above all ask God for wisdom to discern the right way to go. We shouldn't let anything terrify us because God can deliver from any situation. But above all try to be senene in making a decision. Do not be hasty or make a decsion when you've lost your temper. Count to 10 ten times before saying anything. But in all be prayer and supplication make you request known to God so he can give you peace in your undertaking. May you be blessed. Amen. thbg
