Sacred Counsel

Read Job 25:1 through 30:31

When faced with a dilemma, many people do a desperate search for counselors. If a person is willing to pay for it, there seems to be a coach to match every problem that arises, from career choices to physical conditioning to finances. While seeking out those experienced in a specific area is a wise endeavor, remembering that humans have limitations is also sensible.


Job ended his speeches with thoughts about wisdom. In his life, Job certainly had experience to match his words. But he still looked heavenward for wisdom.


God understands the way to it and he alone knows where it dwells, for he views the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens (Job 28:23–24).


When people are at an impasse, there is a God who loves them and has the answer to their woes. But some take Him for granted. Even though God has given certain people knowledge and wisdom to help others in difficult times, God available to His people through the Holy Spirit and through His Word. And His advice is never wrong.


Prayer Suggestion: Lord, help me to seek and receive Your counsel when I face problems.
