Daily in Your Presence - Jan. 5

Day 5

WONDERFUL COUNSELOR
 

And he will be called

Wonderful Counselor.

Isaiah 9:6

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I see your confused and hurting heart. You are facing a mountain of decisions, yet you feel paralyzed and helpless to act. I am always ready to counsel you, not with chiding words or accusing fingers but with arms of love. Rest in Me a while, and soon you will see the clouds disappear. I will put My thoughts within you to help you make wise choices. Trust Me today.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Amid the hurt, joy, and unanswered questions, You are there with listening ears and compassionate eyes. With discerning thought and gentle affirmation, You speak directly to the issues of my life. No one but You knows how the patterns of my life fit together.  Thank You, Lord, for always being there.

SIMPLE TRUTH

God is never the author of confusion. His counsel is 100 percent accurate.
