“Those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.”
Pr 11:13 NLT

BE CAREFUL WHOM YOU CONFIDE IN

If you need help with a problem in your personal life, your family, or your career, keep the following things in mind: (1) Bad news is often remembered longer than good news. Long after you have resolved the issue and moved on with your life, the wrong people will continue to focus on it and talk about it. That’s why God’s Word says, “Those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.” (2) Be careful who advises you. “The thoughts of the righteous are right, but the counsels of the wicked are deceitful” (Pr 12:5 NKJV). Be sure you reach for the right person. There are many sources of wisdom in this world, “but the wisdom that is from above is…pure…peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and…hypocrisy” (Jas 3:17 NKJV). Note the words, “the wisdom that is from above.” Confide only in a counselor who walks according to the principles of God’s Word. (3) Make sure the person you trust isn’t confiding in others you wouldn’t trust. They say you can tell a man by the company he keeps. And it’s true! The Bible says, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly” (Ps 1:1 NKJV). (4) “Problem talk” can portray you as a victim instead of an overcomer. Nobody wants to back a loser. When Job lost everything, almost everybody avoided him. It was only after God doubled Job’s blessings that they returned to participate in his life and bring him gifts. It’s always wise to control your mouth, your thoughts, and your focus. Remember, silence can never be misquoted.

Reflection:

  1. Who are your friends?
  2. Who do you confide in when situations arise?
  3. What have you learned about yourself when your’e faced with trials?

    ” Remember, silence can never be misquoted.” This right here just changed my life. Lord, help me feel it but not speak it. May the secrets of my heart fall on holy ears and the purpose in me be nurtured and not coveted by those who portray themselves as “friends” in Jesus name. May I remember the safest place to run when I have something to say is to your throne, humbly and submissively waiting to hear what thus saith the Lord.

      “May the secrets of my heart fall on holy ears and the purpose in me be nurtured and not coveted by those who portray themselves as “friends” Amen. May God help us. Have a lovely day 🙂
