A wise man once said, decision is destiny. In other words, as you make decisions every day about different aspects of your life, you are inadvertently determining your own destiny. Your choice of who to marry, what product or service to launch, who to hire or fire, where to invest, etc. all sum up into what you will experience in your life or business.
Having the right counsel at every juncture is therefore important, so you can make informed decisions that can give you an edge towards success each time.
Our opening text goes further to emphasize the place and importance of a wise counsel, showing that a man who operates by them will walk in safety. This underlines the fact that counsel, when given by a knowledgeable and experienced person, can be very instrumental in your journey to success.
Whether it is through a trusted friend, a mentor, or professional counsellor, a good counsel can be a powerful springboard for your personal growth, and career development. Thus, you must be positioned to receive counsel with an open heart and mind.
Therefore, whenever you are on the verge of making an important decision, remember to seek wholesome counsel before you act. Also, take the time to think and pray through your decisions, and trust the Holy Spirit to lead you on to success.
