Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency. For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children. When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
Psalm 73:1-3, 12-17, 22-24
One of the greatest blessings that we are blessed with as children of God and heirs of the Kingdom is our access to a godly counsel. Practical advice, plan, prudence, and how to handle critical issues and puzzles of life. God, in His infinite mercies, has, wants, and is pouring upon the Church the Spirit of counsel in these strange times and the world we live in. The greatest sign of growth and spiritual advancement is the ability to receive godly counsel, corrections, rebukes, and discipline that may not make sense in the beginning but may turn out to be a lifesaver.
