I will bless the Lord who has counseled me;
Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night.
I have set the Lord continually before me;
Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Psalm 16:7-8 NAS
Jesus is your safe place. Let Him be your counselor.
Tell Him anything. Tell Him everything. Let Him help you excavate all the hurts, all the anger, all the wounds from your aching heart and mind. Watch Him gently gather up each of them and by His miraculous, almighty, and omniscient touch, heal them.
Listen as He tells you what He thinks of each, so you can see them as He sees them. Then watch Him shape each one into something beautiful, tossing far away from you the shards of pain and remnants of guilt.
Watch Him render powerless the enemy’s assault.
And let Him help you stop being your own enemy.
Allow Him to renew your mind and restore your heart. He is the ultimate counselor and your victorious warrior who loves you and rejoices over you.
The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior.
He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love,
He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
Zephaniah 3:17 NAS
Jesus is your safe place. Run to Him!

Many times God uses godly counselors to help us work through our issues. I encourage you to seek godly counsel if you feel you need “someone with skin on” to come alongside you as you allow the Lord to heal you. May He be glorified as you seek and receive the healing that is yours in Him.
