Who counsels me?

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Psalm 16

What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?

“The Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.” (Psalm 16:7)
Do you talk through your struggles or challenges with the Lord?
David is wrestling with God in the middle of a crisis, and he senses the Lord’s help.
My experience is the same as David’s, talking troubles through with the Lord.
For me either journaling or walking will do; when I do, the Lord counsels me.
The Voice of the Lord instructs me in my heart and mind as I walk and talk it out.
It is not instant – pray and be better – but its consistent.
By the end of my walk, nothing may have changed, but my mind is in a better place.
I have a better sense of what is true, and of what I need to do.
I’ve done this for years (since I began in ministry), so it comes naturally now.
This is how God speaks to me, maybe you have other ways of receiving God’s guidance.
We were never promised an easy journey, but a constant companion and a certain homecoming.
Why struggle alone; God does not remove the struggles, but He can put them in their place.
Take time to walk and talk things through with God…
He will make known to you the path of life, and fill you with joy in is presence!
PRAYER
Lord, thank You for the years of walking and talking with me through my own unique struggles. I am weak, but You are strong; together we make a great team.

  1. Lord thank you that you are always there listening and ready to guide and give counsel even when I am not aware like during sleep. No trouble or struggle is greater than YOU my Lord. Therefore, I will praise you Lord for you counsel me in the midst of my troubles and struggles. Praise to you O Lord Father Son and Holy Spirit.

  2. TGIF day – Today God Is First as He is every day.
    I continue to walk in His Sonshine as I continue to journey in joy
    for the joy of the Lord God is my strength.
    He is my constant companion
    for I have put my hand into His as He continues to lead and guide me.
    That’s comfort.
    That’s strength.
    That’s true living.

    When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
    What a glory He sheds on our way!
    While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
    And with all who will trust and obey.
    Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
    To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
    Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
    But His smile quickly drives it away;
    Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
    Can abide while we trust and obey.
    Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
    To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

  3. My security is in God in whom I take refuge – He counsels me and promises me safety for eternity – with God at my side I can not be shaken – He makes my lot – my inheritance secure. God is so good!

  4. I’m reminded that my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices because You are at my right hand and I will not be shaken.

    Thank you, o God for keeping us safe, for counseling us and never abandoning us.
