There is a story of a man who was waiting for a traffic light to turn green. On his rear bumper was a sticker that read: “DO NOT FOLLOW ME – I’M LOST!”
Another car stopped next to him. The man rolled down his window and motioned for him to do the same. When the man with the sticker on his car rolled down his window, the person in the car next to him pointed to himself and said, “Me too. But at least you look like you’re going someplace. Mind if I follow you?”
If there is anyone whom everyone needs, it is someone who is smarter than all of us put together. We all need a Counselor who is wiser and smarter than we are, and who has more insight and foresight than any one person could ever possess.
We all need a Counselor who knows us. We need One who knows our attitudes and abilities, our flaws and failures, our sins and shortcomings - yet One who is interested in us in spite of ourselves.
We all need a Counselor who knows tomorrow. We need One who knows what is in store for us and can guide us and guard us through difficult days and long, lonely nights. SomeOne who will be with us from the beginning of life and to the end of life as we now know it.
We all need a Counselor who knows the truth. We need One who will not allow us to hide behind our lies. We need One who will expose our words of deceit or false statements about whom we are. We need One who will show us who we can be through the grace of God.
Prayer: Open our hearts, Father, to the truth of Your Word. Speak to us and convict us through the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: Psalm 16:7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
