I can plan events pretty fast
But I need others to execute my plan
So, what looks like will work perfectly for me
May not work at all for those whose help I need

In the days when I lacked maturity
I would ignore advice from others
As I’d think I had all bases covered
Only to find out later that my plan was full of blunders

Sometimes God doesn’t talk to us directly
Sometimes for guidance, there is no specific scripture to read
He gives us protection through the advice from others
It’s up to us to take and digest their advice
And not to think we are always right.


Proverbs 19:20 says Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. When planning events or making decisions that will impact others, it’s good to run the plans by someone(s). Perhaps you left out an important detail, or perhaps what you are planning may not be the best thing to do at this time. In any event, God puts people in our lives for guidance and instruction. Even if you are a smart person or good at what you do, don’t ignore the counsel of others.
