Scripture is clear that wisdom comes through the counsel of others.
Proverbs says, "Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety." In His kindness, God provided me with boat loads of wise counsel.
I didn't fight to believe God's promise for wisdom. I doubted the promise of God to "give generously" to those who plead for wisdom. Not only did I doubt the promises of God, but I also doubted the counsel of others.Through this counsel it became clear that my doubts were not from God, and that our relationship was headed towards marriage, both of which were good news to me.But this wise counsel didn't do much to soothe my fears. Because I doubted the wisdom of those God had placed in my life.Romans puts it this way: "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." By letting my heart be ruled by fear and doubt, I was making a very loud statement about the character of God.I was saying that God couldn't be trusted to lead me into a wonderful, God-glorifying marriage.
