Let Yahweh Be Your Counselor

Have you ever thought of going to a counselor to help you with your problems? I know my immediate reaction to this thought is to talk myself out of it if at all possible. I mean counselors use “psychology,” and what if the counselor I get does not agree with my beliefs?

What if I don’t like the person, or they can’t understand me? There are so many ways to let fear rule our actions. Counseling is not a bad thing to do, it can be very helpful.

Counselors can teach us things, like how to deal with our thoughts and our emotions, how to communicate with others, and a lot of other things. Let Yahweh help you to choose someone to talk to, whether that is a professional counselor, an elder in your assembly or a good friend. It can really help to talk things out, to pray, to listen to the counsel that is presented, and then do what has been suggested (as long as it lines up with the counsel of Yahweh).

The best news is that Yahweh is an infallible, wise, and ever-pres­ent counselor and He sent His son, the Messiah, Yahshua to be our counselor as well! We are a blessed people if we listen and obey His counsel!

Here is a list of things that Scripture says about counsel and counselors:

Why We Should Listen to the Counsel of Yahweh

  •  Yahshua Came to Be Our Counselor

Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty Elohim, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 11:1-5 – And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of Yahweh shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understand­ing, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of Yahweh: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righ­teousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Ephesians 1:11 – In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

The Scripture Teaches Us to Seek Sound Counsel from Yahweh and/or From Man

Proverbs 15:22 – Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established.

 It Is Available to Us, a Promise

Hebrews 6:17 – Wherein Elohim, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, con­firmed it by an oath:  

His Promises Are His Counsel, the Torah, Tanakh, and the Renewed Covenant

Psalms 1:1-3 – Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of Yahweh; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

There Is Safety

Proverbs 24:6 – For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counselors there is safety. Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

 We Receive Wisdom

Proverbs 12:15 – The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Proverbs 19:20 – Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

Yahweh’s Counsel Stands; It Is Reliable

Psalms 33:11 – The counsel of Yahweh standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

Proverbs 15:22 – Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established.

Proverbs 19:21 – There are many devices in a man’s heart; never­theless the counsel of Yahweh, that shall stand.

Isaiah 46:10 – Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

How to Know If You Are in Yah’s Counsel

You Have Repented

Jeremiah 23:22 – But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

What Happens to the Unrighteous If They Don’t Take Yahweh’s Counsel

Isaiah 30:1 – Woe to the rebellious children, saith Yahweh, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

Psalm 33:10 – Yahweh bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

Psalm 107:11-12 – Because they rebelled against the words of Elohim, and contemned the counsel of the most High: Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help. If your heart needs wisdom, comfort, reassur­ance, hope, mercy, grace and peace, then seek the highest Coun­selor and He will hear your prayers.

Hebrews 4:16 – Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

May Yahweh bless you and heal your heart!
