Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.
Living On Purpose requires an embrace of those things that helps one move forward in that which should be for your life as declared by God. The what should be for your life is God’s purpose and plan that leads to the vision of the promises of God being realized. To have vision, one must be open to God impressing upon your mind the ideas and steps to live the well-lived and joy filled life promised, life and life more abundantly. The impression of God upon your minds is a direct result of you embracing what God is doing with you and around you and it is up to you and I to glean, discern from our lived experiences in order to LIVE fully in that which should be as God declared. Embracing is to take in and bring close to you and strategically and methodically move forward and upward to the higher calling of God. The wisdom of the Proverb writer is that embracing wise counsel, counsel that is both experimental and beneficial that helps you to glean, discern in order to move forward in a way that yields the best benefit for you pressing forward in God’s purpose and plan for your life. God’s purpose and plan for your life can be elusive but with wise counsel you are able to begin the process of connecting dots. The connecting of the dots are not a precise activity, it is often cluttered with tries and mistakes, which necessitate you also embracing constructive criticism that helps you to fit the wise counsel and you to what it is God has purposed and planned for your life.
