January 17, 2020 SEEK HELP
When we are working toward our goals in life, we sometimes need help. We need to bring in others to do certain things for us. We may even need to seek advice on what we should do or not do. Seeking the right help is important. We should seek godly counsel and God’s word to help us make right decisions to reach our goals. If we seek the wrong people for help, we could easily go down a wrong path. We need to pray about and test advice from others to be sure it is in line with God’s word.
1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” (NLT)
1. Write about a time when you needed help.
2. List who you went to and what happened.
3. Know God wants you to seek Him when you need help.
4. Go to His word and seek godly people to help you.
Dear Lord, we pray You will lead us to Your word when we need help. We pray for the courage to share our problems with godly people who will help us make wise decisions. We want to stay on track doing Your will and seek godly advice rather than worldly help. Help us to find the right help that is in line with Your will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
The best way to succeed is not to try it alone. Seek God’s word and many godly advisers to help.
Proverbs 15:22 “Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success.” (NLT)
We need wisdom from those who are living a godly life to help us make right decisions toward our goals.
Proverbs 20:18 “Plans succeed through good counsel; don’t go to war without wise advice.” (NLT)
Getting help from those who follow the ways of the world could hurt us and others. We should seek godly help.
1 Corinthians 15:33b “bad company corrupts good character.” (NLT)
