Make sure you are listening to the right voices in this season. You want to surround yourself with people who are cheering on your pursuit of God.
Hey, friends, it’s Brandi Belt. And I want to take just a minute and encourage you to make sure that you are listening to the right voices. So often we have people in our lives that tell us to play it safe. They’re well meaning loving people, but they don’t understand that God might be challenging us to walk on the water, God might be drawing us into a deeper relationship with him and stretching our faith in new ways. Sometimes that can be scary, not only for us, but for the people around us.
Proverbs 11 says in the there’s a wisdom in the multitude of counselors, you need to make sure that you know who you’re receiving counsel from in this season, it’s easy to listen to voices, and people that are familiar to you. They’re comfortable for you to connect with. Maybe it’s family relationships, maybe it’s, you know, long friends, long term friendships. But I want to encourage you to make sure that you really go and seek the Lord in this season, to evaluate who you’re listening to. Because you want to make sure the people you’re listening to are people that are going to be cheering on your pursuit of God and all that He has for you. You want people in your life, that when you tell them what God has done, they are excited for you. You want people in your life that when you go to them and you say hey, I need some insight. I need some counsel. I need to understand what it is. Maybe I’m missing that’s preventing me from walking into the next thing God has for me. You need those people in your life. So I just want to encourage you to make sure in this season, you ask God for those friends
