Morning Thrive - "Godly Counsel"

“Godly Counsel”

Hey everybody! We’ve been talking about finding God’s will, and here’s another thing, and boy is it really important: seek godly counsel. As you’re trying to seek God’s wil,l you need to have three or four people in your life that are mentors. People that are godly and who maybe are just a step or two ahead of you in life, so that they can speak truth into your life, and maybe give you a different perspective. I heard people say that you are a composite of the five people you spend the most time with. Now think about that, if you spend the most time with godly people that are rooted in God’s Word, if that’s who you run with, then you’re going to become a person like that. But if you are hanging out with a bunch of people that don’t walk with God and are ignorant really, of God’s truth and don’t have biblically wise discernment, then you’re going to end up being like them. So, who are the five people in your life that you spend the most time with, that really encourage you in your walk with God? This is why we need the church, because it’s in the church that we can surround ourselves with godly people and gain godly wisdom from them. The Bible says in Proverbs 11:14, “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” So, why don’t you come to First Colleyville this weekend if you can, come to one of our services at either, 9:00am, 10:15 am or 11:30 am. If you’re not close to Colleyville, go to a Bible teaching church and ask God to show you His will for your life.
