So many times when we need direction, God will speak in the supernatural, whether in a sudden burst of insight or in a dream.
He will bring to us the spirit of counsel. Often we have been upheld, consoled, and directed by the counsel of the Holy Spirit.
Often when we are not receiving counsel from the Holy Spirit, we are looking to our friends rather than expecting Our Father to answer and direct us. Do not misunderstand, there is wisdom in talking to people, but we must remember to look first and most to the Lord for wisdom.
So, beloved, direct your heart back to relying on Jesus for everything. God is in the here and now. His counsel is practical, and He will make it known to those who seek Him.
