Plans succeed through good counsel; don’t go to war without wise advice.
Proverbs 20:18 NLT

There’s been a push in society where people are being applauded for making decisions independently of anyone else. Major decisions such as, marriage/divorce, moving for a job, and major investments should be linked to good counsel. If God says good counsel is important, who are we to say otherwise?

Good counsel should begin with God. He’s the best Counselor we’ll ever have. Go to Him with any and all plans and decisions. Allow Him to tell you what’s best and obey.

Although God is the beginning of good counsel, He may not be the only counsel. As we seek God, He may tell us to talk to this person, read a certain book, or listen to a podcast for further education in an area. As we follow God’s instructions, all our plans will succeed.
