The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Proberbs 12 15
Note: If you truly want to know where you stand with God. Look at your decisions and let us see if God really approved of What it is you decided.
If you want to know, you put yourself in a position to receive the answers. You don’t come off as if you have all the information that you need to move forward. God has sent the comforter for those who do not mind someone telling them which way is right.
Fools do not want to hear what they already assume they understand. You have dealt with people who are so stubborn and bull headed that they have to hit their head against something, that is the only way they stop to look at their circumstance.
You also can not lead fools.
People who don’t follow the rules will not bend their will to anyone. They have what they need and they are satisfied. They do not pursue anything that is righteous or noble. They take and conive their way through life using bullish tactics to get by. The force the weaker ones to hear their side of every story.
Foolish squander their good fortune. They buy the biggest thing that everyone can see just to show up another. Before a foolish man can become a wise man, he must loose everything to humble him to the core.
The question in this verse, is are you listening? We go on with our day as planned and never seem to inquire of the Lord for the directions that we should take throughout the day. Then when we find ourselves on a road to destruction, we cry out to God for advice and counsel and we feel like He abandoned us, when we let go of His hand and ran off.
Foolish people don’t listen. So, don’t be a foolish child, open your ears and your heart and pay attention to the road signs so you will know the way out of a dead end in advance. As long as we keep bull dozing our way through life we will constantly have to start over.
I know you dont like to mess up, so it is best we get ourselves on a steady stream and current flow of true knowledge, and that knowledge is in God and His people.
Here’s my last thought. Don’t put it past the Lord to send you someone who gets on your last nerve, just to teach you His lesson for you. He will send you a Pharoah, or a Herod. Just to test your humble nature. You know those people who won’t let stuff go…
