Whose Word Do You Listen To?
History attests to the fact that the advise people, co-operations and even entire Kingdoms have taken have either made them or marred them.
You may be one advise away from making a decision that will determine where you spend your eternity.
You may be one counsel away from making a decision that will bring you either success or failure.
You might be one one word away from choosing the right life partner.
The question is, who do you listen to?
It is a fact that the people we choose to listen to will determine the decisions we make and the decisions we make will determine our destiny. Our destiny is simply the outcome of our decisions. The only thing that is pre-destined is the outcome of our decisions. That's why it is so important for us to make the right decisions so that we will turn out the right way and get the right results. Since no one has it all when it comes to all the wisdom, knowledge and understanding needed in life, we feel obligated to to seek advise and counsel.
From ancient times even Kings sought advise. The had personal advisors and groups of 'wise men' who were made up of magicians, sorcerers, astrologers, experienced statemen, any one who had something to offer and could help give them the strategic advantage.
The good Book says 'there is a way that seems right to a man but the end thereof is destruction'
Are you seeking counsel from the right sources in life?
Who do you listen to?
Are your advisers your dream killers without realizing it?
It's sad when people mistakenly turn to their enemies for advise without even realizng it.
Knowing what's is in the heart of man can be difficult, that is why we have to be careful who we listen to.
The creator in His wisdom understands what man's experiences are and He hasn't left us without Help.
Within man is an internal guidance system called our conscience. Within us is an internal compass called our intuition. Within us is an internal sensor called our perception. You will hardly go wrong if you follow them.
Most important of all is the Spirit of God which God releases into those who are saved and have accepted Jesus as Lord and saviour, the Holy Spirit is our exclusive privilege. He comforts, guides, encourages, teaches, reminds and counsels. He supplies knowledge and wisdom, and gives direction and help.
He is one person you should listen to.
