“All this also comes from the LORD Almighty, wonderful in counsel
and magnificent in wisdom.” Isaiah 28:29 (NIV)
At different times in our lives we have needed to seek advice from a person more knowledgeable than we. This advice may come from a doctor, a lawyer, a therapist, an expert on rearing children.
Spiritually speaking, we have an adviser who watches over us every day of our lives. He has watched over us since we were formed Psalm 139:13-16. We call on Him when we have problems or illness in our lives. We worship and praise Him when our lives run smoothly.
His name is Jesus. His role in our lives is that of counselor. Isaiah describes Him as “wonderful counselor; what does that mean to us? Have you had a time in your life where you sought God’s counsel over the advice of earthly friends or worldly ‘experts’?
