A Wonderful Counselor …

Have you ever needed advice?  Have you ever been in a “life or death” situation and needed someone to be the voice of reason?  Have you ever felt like saying what was really on your mind and needed someone to diffuse your emotions?  Or, maybe you’ve had a lot on your mind and just needed someone to talk to.

I’ve been in some stressful situations, and I’ve discovered that Jesus is best advisor around.  No matter the problem, He always has an answer!  When situations provoke me to panic, His presence always gives me peace.  When the sea of life starts raging, He leads me beside still waters.  And, when I listen to Him, things always work out as they should.  No wonder Isaiah didn’t just call Him wonderful, but He called Him a wonderful counselor (see Isaiah 9:6).

I don’t know what you’re facing right now, but remember – Jesus is a wonderful counselor.  None of our problems are beyond His expertise.  Try Him, and you’ll conclude: “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble” (Psalm 46:1, New Living Translation).
