Live By Faith And Not By Sight
In the governance of a nation, there are many examples of foolish decisions that have been made when wise counsel has been ignored, or when a proud leader has disregarded the advice of knowledgeable generals. Similarly, there are other instances when victory has been secured, when decisions have been based on wise counsel, or rulings have reflected informed guidance: "For in the abundance of counsellors there is victory."
As Christians, we live by faith and not by sight, and often we are faced with decisions or choices which may have a significant impact on our future life and witness. And this little proverb is an important reminder to seek godly counsel when we are undecided or facing a challenge, contemplating a change, or required to make an adjustment in our life's circumstances.
God often uses seasoned believers to offer advice, and many times we discover that it is out of the mouth of multiple witnesses, that we receive godly wisdom in our life-choices.
Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wise counsel of Christian brothers and sisters that You have placed in our lives, to give us godly guidance and wise instruction. May we be willing to listen to their advice and we pray that You would confirm the guidance we receive in Your Word and through Your Holy Spirit. Use us, we pray, to offer wise advice to others, and to be ready and willing to respond to Your leading and guiding in every area of our lives. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
