“Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.” Proverbs 19:20 NIV
I have found that doubt and unbelief contribute to me being slow to act in obedience to God’s Word. It keeps me from moving forward. The more often doubt and unbelief weigh into my decisions, the more delays keep me from receiving my heart’s desires. It can be a vicious circle. The more delays, the more doubt and unbelief. It may start as a little thing. It can continue to grow and rob me of more and more of what God has for me. Sometimes others see it before I do. Their wisdom and counsel are a breath of fresh air. They give me new perspective to take back to the Lord in prayer.
Father, I repent. Help me be sure-footed and know that You are always with me. I am never alone! Keep me firmly rooted in Your Word as a discipline to my heart. Give me faith to move forward and believe for the best! Keep my heart humble and accepting of wise counsel.
