Get Counsel

Without counsel plans fail,but with many advisers they succeed. ~ Proverbs 15:22

I am a planner by design. I am not as spontaneous as many think I can be. I think things through, analyze and strategize the right approach before doing it. It seems like a long and exhausting process for you to undergo. However, it becomes the best way to design your life or business.

Getting counsel is important when you are ready to take on a new business venture . Don’t plan and despise counsel because you feel threatened by the input of others. I know that everything I have ever planned or done has succeeded based on the counsel and advisers I have had.

There is nothing that will succeed in your life without advisement. I am not saying become co-dependent on others, but seek out those with Wisdom in the area you are looking to grow or develop in your life. I wanted to be successful in healthy eating, and I sought out an adviser to assist.

The problem with non-successful people is they don’t like to seek advisers. Have you ever thought how does an NBA player leave the court and become a business tycoon? They have sought out advisers and wise counsel. Have you wondered why you are not moving forward in your business or personal goals?

Yes, I know we have the Holy Spirit, and people say that is all you need. Well, I challenge you to go further and get wise advisers to help you excel. Business development, cities infrastructure, and nations are not maintained off of the mind of one person. There is always a board of advisers.

Just think, even heaven has a counsel! If God required a council of elders around his throne, why don’t you have a counsel around your business or life goal? Follow the design of God, and success is destined for you.

Now, remember I am a prophetic teacher. So, here is your tea time question

Do you have a counsel of wise advisers around your ventures? If not, why? If so, do you follow or use the advice given?

Sip your tea!

Wisdom Rules

Wisdom makes the wise man stronger than ten rulers of a city. ~ Ecclesiastes 7:19

We never realize how powerful having God’s wisdom can be in our lives.

Throughout our life development, we achieve knowledge through school, mentors, books, television and other various of other sources. However, we never realize that the strength of our character, our success, and fortitude is wisdom.

The Bible tells us in Proverbs 1:1, The beginning of all wisdom is the fear of the Lord. We read this scripture to mean fearing him. The beginning of wisdom is the understanding that God is a sovereign, wise ruler, is where wisdom starts to become imparted in our lives.

Have we not challenged ourselves to be smarter than the next person, to only find out we are not wise due to knowledge. Wisdom will lend herself only to those who have to achieve the first golden rule she carries, which is reverence for God. Once you have obtained this, then you can become stronger than the greatest kings over nations. Wisdom will lend to those who seek it through the only provider of it … God.

I love to end your time with questions because being a prophetic teacher I want to challenge you to think.

Have you achieved the first golden rule of wisdom in Proverbs 1:1-2? If, so then are you ready to be made active by wisdom?

About Isolating Yourself…

A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment. ~ Proverbs 18:1

Have you ever thought it is best to just be alone? Did you ever realize isolation is selfish? Have people told you it’s not good to isolate yourself, and you thought, oh yes it is?

Solomon who had the wisdom of God, said isolation is not wise judgment. Isolation can lead to deep depression and the use of the idle mind.  The Bible says, “ an idle mind is the devil’s workshop” (Prov: 16:27-29).

Don’t allow your problems and issues to cause you to isolate yourself.  Push past those moments and locate someone to pray with you or talk to you. When Jesus went to pray, even he had the disciples nearby to watch over him.

I want you to challenge your thinking for the day. When you feel isolation creeping on you, ask yourself why do you desire to be isolated? If your answer is simply to be isolated,push past the emotions,  then choose wisdom to call someone to pray for you.

The Increase of Wealth

Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished, But he who gathers by labor will increase. ~  Proverbs 13:11

The world we live in today, with all of the entertainment, we think wealth comes with such ease. Think. every time you turn the television on you are fooled into believing you can just get wealth dishonestly.

Wealth takes hard work and determination. Money gained by dishonest means, won’t last. You have to obtain wealth the correct way. When you labor for wealth, you will get the increase properly, and it will sustain. Stop looking at others who have gained wealth quickly, and equating this to wealth to God.

While you are building your business, ministry or writing books the recognition may not quickly come. If the monetary gain is not happening fast, don’t cut corners or try to come up with dishonest means to gain the wealth. You just keep working hard staying diligent in your pursuit, and the reward will come.

Ask yourself am I trying to cut corners to gain wealth?

Take God’s Leading and Not your own

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct[a] your paths. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

We are always needing to understand things that are happening in our lives, and how we are going to get through certain situations. I know it becomes easy to rely on your understanding and create your path.

The moment when you feel like your way seems right, pause and reflect. Allow yourself to trust God’s path and plan. Don’t rely on your understanding, but sit down and pray and seek God for the knowledge and direction for your life.

Are you asking God for understanding and guidance?
