Thought For Today - August 4 Hear counsel and receive instruction!
The word of God tells us to:” Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end." Psalm 19: 20
Foolish is the person who will not open his ears and his heart to the instruction of God, and likewise, foolish is the person who does open his ears and his heart to the counsel and instruction of the foolish. We ought to be very discerning, and try the spirits, and test any counsel that is given to us by comparison to the word of God. The fool hath said in his heart there is no God. To follow the wisdom and counsel of this person is folly and dangerous.
The world is full of worldly wisdom, and there are ways that seem right unto a man but the end thereof is destruction, but the wisdom that cometh from above is Godly, and there is safety in walking therein.
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor siteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish." Psalm 1
A wise philosopher once said: I cannot tell who is the most blessed of men, or the most successful of men until I can see the end of man."
The word of God guarantees that in thy latter end you will be most blessed and successful if you hear counsel and receive instruction.
"Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death." Proverbs 8: 33-36.
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Timothy 3:16,17.
