Seeking guidance and mentorship
"Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed" - Proverbs 15:22
Proverbs 15:22 says, "Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed." This verse reminds us of the importance of seeking guidance and mentorship in our personal renewal and growth.
God has designed us to live in a community, and part of that community involves seeking out wise counsel and guidance from those who have gone before us. Whether it be through a mentor, a trusted friend, or a professional counselor, seeking advice and wisdom from others can help us gain new perspectives and insights on our lives and experiences.
Furthermore, when we seek out guidance from those who are further along in their journey, we can learn from their experiences and avoid making the same mistakes they did. We can also gain encouragement and accountability to stay on track and continue growing.
As we seek guidance and mentorship in our personal renewal and growth, let us not forget to turn to the ultimate source of wisdom: God Himself. He promises to guide us and direct our paths if we seek Him with all our hearts (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Pray with us
Dear God, help me to seek out guidance and mentorship as I continue on my journey of personal renewal and growth. Give me the courage to be vulnerable and open to the advice of others, and to learn from their experiences. Above all, help me to seek You and Your wisdom as the ultimate source of guidance in my life. May I always be open to Your leading and direction, and may I use the wisdom and insight I gain from others to glorify You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
