Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
There are times in each of our lives, no matter where we are in life when we need the counsel of other godly people. Maybe you have been offered a job and you aren’t sure if you should take it, maybe your children are overwhelming you, maybe you have issues with your parents or maybe your marriage isn’t what it should be. Having a life coach or a counselor or going to your pastor is a wise thing to do. If it is a big issue, you may need to collaborate the counsel of a few godly people.
Now, here’s the deal; I have heard some very godly women tell those they were teaching that they should never talk negative to anyone about their husbands. Let me clarify something for them because that statement should never and I really do mean never, be left by itself because there are situations where you need to talk and you need the counsel of other godly people in your situation. I am sure they must mean that you should not be running around constantly telling all of your friends and people you meet all of the negative things about your husband, “he doesn’t pick up his socks, he doesn’t help with the kids, he doesn’t help with the dishes, he leaves the toilet seat up…… “ If all you are doing is complaining about his “little flaws” you are opening the door to Satan to have something to build on. You certainly don’t want that to become your focus. Let’s face it though, there are some situations where you may be losing who you are because those aren’t the issues your husband has, his go much deeper and you need some godly counsel to sort it out and to know how you need to handle it because you can’t see it all clearly because you are too close to the situation.
Getting a counselor or Life Coach is not something to be ashamed of, it is quite the opposite really. God gives us people who are able to help us see the godly way through the struggles in our life. It is important to be able to talk to someone when you need extra guidance in your life. I know….. I have heard the argument that we just need to take everything to God and we should never need a counselor, but that is like saying you should never need a plumber because you should be able to pray about it, or you don’t need a doctor because you should be able to pray and be healed. There is nothing wrong with seeking good godly counsel to get you through your struggles in life.
If you are struggling, yes, I would first suggest that you pour your heart out to God and give it all to Him. Then, I would suggest that you seek out a godly person in your life or if the problem requires, find a good godly counselor. God loves you and He wants to give you the answers you are seeking, don’t be afraid of godly counsel, whatever you do, don’t keep it all locked up inside!
