A friend shared this with me recently. I needed a reminder on who to look to for counsel. I’ve had people seemingly fail at giving me guidance recently, and it’s hard when I’m trusting someone to look out for me. But God is good, and he will lead and guide me, and us, if we ask Him to.

But we are not to place the responsibility of our duty upon others, and wait for them to tell us what to do. We cannot depend for counsel upon humanity. The Lord will teach us our duty just as willingly as He will teach somebody else. If we come to Him in faith, He will speak His mysteries to us personally. Our hearts will often burn within us as One draws nigh to commune with us as He did with Enoch. Those who decide to do nothing in any line that will displease God, will know, after presenting their case before Him, just what course to pursue. And they will receive not only wisdom, but strength. Power for obedience, for service, will be imparted to them, as Christ has promised. – DA 668.4
