We know that God is the “Wonderful Counsellor” (Is 9:6), but we often take that to be a mere spiritual comfort rather than a practical call to listen and follow His instruction. Perhaps the most beautiful description of God’s wisdom and counsel is this:

This also comes from the LORD of hosts;
he is wonderful in counsel
and excellent in wisdom.

Isaiah 28:29 (ESV)

With such a God, we not only take great comfort, but we also raise our hand to ask Him all our questions. With such a God we stand in line to present our troubles, decisions, and dreams to Him for input. With such a God we look up His name in the Author index at the library and read whatever He has written. With a God described as “wonderful in counsel and excellent in wisdom”, we learn all we can from.

In His wisdom He made Himself known to us. He published a Book so we can read, re-read, and read once more again. He created a social group of other believers in Him so together we can counsel one another in His ways.
