Prov 20:5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, But a man of understanding will draw it out.
Isa 12:3 Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
John 4:11, 13, 14 “The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? … Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.””
Most of the ministers will tell us to go to the word of God to get His counsel. The problem for many of us is how to draw His counsel form this deep well of living water. A man was wandering in the dessert and came to a well. He was thirsty and he wanted to drink the water from the well. But, he did not know how to draw it from the well because, there is no rope or a bucket to draw the water from the well. This is where many of us are stranded to find God’s leading to our issues or needs at that time, using the scriptures. God knows this and that is why He gave our Beloved Holy Spirit the Helper.
He is the Rescuer of our life in the dessert, Who is the living water for our weary souls. He enables us to draw His counsel in many ways but most common are the following:
- Opening our eyes to a part of a scripture which deals with our issue or need
- Dispense prophetical uttering through fellow believers who has the gift of prophesy and then through that utterance, He will point out the counsel that is hidden in the prophecy.
Written word of God and prophecy is for believers who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who believe in faith will find the truth through Spirit of Truth and the truth will set them free. The world can not receive the Spirit of Truth because it neither sees Him or knows Him (John 14:17); because of that they do not understand the truth. For us, who believe the truth is the power of God. Therefore, let us leave the world and inherit the Spirit of Truth.
