1Samuel 11:3 “And the elders of Jabesh said unto him, Give us seven days’ respite that we may send messengers unto all the coasts of Israel: and then, if there be no man to save us, we will come out to thee.”
These elders made wide consultations and it was in the course of it they met Saul. What they should have done first was achieved through trial and error.
Beloved, make consultations when confused on a matter. Even when you think the action you want to take is correct, a second opinion might just confirm it or show you the lapses in your plans. There just might be something you’re not seeing. Another intelligence might just make your good plans better.
You cannot travel the journey of life without inputs from others. I suggest you always talk to your mentors and spiritual authorities. There are people who have been through what you’re going through who came out tops, why not seek for their counsel? Why “fail” in what somebody successfully “pass” through?
You might even be surprised that they’ll give you a counsel that even though not needed immediately, might become relevant somewhere down the line.
Moses was a successful prophet, leader and deliverer of the people. He was doing well and achieving amazing results but just one consultation with his father-in-law changed his operations:
Exodus 18:17 “And Moses’ father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.”
What shocked me was that when Moses went to God for a confirmation, God told him to listen to Jethro his father cum mentor and change his operations! It means Moses could have wearied himself out if that counsel didn’t come at that time.
Friend, don’t live your life aloof. Listen to others, speak to your mentors, read books and consult wide. In a multitude of counselors there is safety.
Remember, it was in the process of consultation they met Saul!
Above all talk to God! Seek for guidance, just one word from the Lord is all you need. Once He speaks your mind will be at rest. His Word is His Voice!
