Just a Thought for September 1September 1, 2015
We are not left alone to figure things out. Once you are a believer, you have the mind of Christ. Not that your mind becomes the mind of Christ. Your must renew your mind. But in our spirits is the mind of Christ. We also have the Holy Spirit to counsel and comfort us. And we have the Word which is the counsel of the Lord. David had counsel but not in the amazing ways we have by grace.
“I will bless the LORD who has given me counsel; My heart also instructs me in the night seasons” (Psalm 16:7 NKJV).
The Lord’s counsel also comes in the night seasons. Some versions of the Bible translate this as in the night. But I see this as “night seasons.” These are those times in your life when you feel you are in the dark. It’s those times when things are difficult and you don’t see the light.
That’s when you seek with your heart the counsel of the Lord. That’s when you turn you focus on the Word and walk in the light. There always comes a morning and the dawning of light.
