Proverbs 20:5 says, “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, But a man of understanding will draw it out.“
This word counsel in the Hebrew means advice, plan, purpose, strategy.
Often the one with wise counsel is silent, but a man with desire to obtain it can draw it from the wise one.
We all need wisdom. We especially desire that those who rule over us have God’s counsel in abundance.
Always pray for wisdom and counsel to come to the one who needs it. As we pray for that counsel to come, we ask God to reveal His wisdom and understanding to open a way for His plan, purpose or strategy to be revealed to the person we are praying for.
