Yaats - To advise, to counsel, to guide; it denotes one of honorable rank; one who is suited to stand near princes and kings as their adviser. It is expressive of great wisdom, and of qualifications to guide and direct the human race.
A counselor is someone who advises. This person will help you sort through issues in your life. Sometimes that may not be pleasant but it is for your own good.
He is the sum total of all knowledge. All wisdom, all guidance, all direction, all truth, all counsel and insight…He knows everything about everything and is never wrong.
All knowledge of the past present and future, of all things, of all purposes and plans belongs to Him. He even knows what is in your heart!!
Everyone needs a counselor at sometime, someone to talk to, and someone to bounce off ideas off of.
Think about what it means that Jesus is a counselor. He could be YOUR counselor, YOUR advisor!
HE KNOWS THE DEPTHS OF SCIENCE…He made the atom, the atom awaits His order every day to keep going.
HE KNOWS THE DEPTHS OF CREATION…he knows exactly how big the sun needed to be, how hot and how far away from the earth so that we don’t freeze of burn. He created the eyeball…the heart…he knows all this stuff
HE KNOWS THE DEPTHS OF TRUTH…he is the truth! Truth is unchanging and unwavering and never plays favorites. The truth doesn’t care how you feel about it, it just stands and works and cannot be denied.
…even if the government outlawed the truth it changes nothing!
HE KNOWS THE DEPTH OF TIME…the past, present and future He is there already.
HE KNOWS THE DEPTH OF OUR HUMAN CONDITION…he knows about our weakness.
HE ALREADY KNOWS THE PLANS OF ALL MEN AND DEVILS…His counsel is so good because He takes into account what is going on in places and conversations that He hears but you have no idea about.
We can expect Jesus to be our “Top Advisor.”
The president of the United States has all kinds of advisors. Within the current Obama administration there are all kinds of people whose sole job is to counsel and advise the president on his plans of action.
Counseling today is at an all time high in our society. From Dr. Phil, to Oprah Winfrey people are seeking advice. There’s certainly nothing wrong with seeking advice and counseling when you have a particular need in your life – in fact the Bible encourages it. However,
we must not lose sight of the fact that we, as believers, have access to most wonderful counselor imaginable – Jesus Christ.
What makes a Wonderful Counselor?
1. He knows you.
