Where does your wisdom and comfort come from? Who or what do you turn to in your time of need or when you have an important decision to make?
Make it a habit to always seek the Lord, His word and His counsel whenever these tough situations arise. Look to prayer and the Word of God to guide your footsteps.
When we open our ears to hear what the Spirit is saying, we allow our hearts to be encouraged, thereby allowing the Holy Spirit to operate in us. God will do what he says He will do. We can anchor our faith on His Word.
