Here’s something you may benefit from knowing: Just because you get “advice” from someone, it doesn’t mean it’s advice you should follow. It may sound good, but that doesn’t mean it IS good —at least not for you. We’ve seen and have learned the hard way that many people give marriage counsel that they really shouldn’t. Even WE give advice sometimes that may not work. That’s because well-meaning people, friends, relatives, marriage educators, counselors, and even “experts,” can sometimes give flawed advice. Lets face it, as human beings we are all flawed.
God is the only counselor you can fully trust in the way He guides. He knows you better than anyone else ever could —even better than YOU sometimes. He is all knowing. In Psalm 139, the psalmist said,
“O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord.“
From what we’re told in scripture, you can rest assured that God, who made you, knows best how to guide you to Truth and understanding. As you follow His leading, He can help you build a marriage that is the best it can be, as individuals who work together, with Him and each other. [Read more →]
