Winning Wisdom: Enlist Help

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. Proverbs 11:14

While we understand that God has made us sufficient in all things (2 Corinthians 9:8), it is pertinent for us to know that we've got to look beyond ourselves and what we are capable of doing sometimes, and enlist the help of people, especially when we are facing difficult situations that we can't pull through. Enlisting people's help won't do any damage to your personality or confidence, it will, at the end, get the job done or fix the difficult situation.

I had a friend in school, when I was studying for my masters degree. We were in the same department, but he was in the post graduate diploma program. This young man was writing his thesis but was having challenges. I sensed that he was struggling with it, so I approached him and ask him how he was doing with his thesis. He answered fine. Several times I asked him, but his answer was always the same: fine. So I decided to allow him be.

About two years on from that time, I got a call from him, telling me that he couldn't write his thesis then, and after so many struggles, he stopped the program. This is a classic example of what some folks are going through. But they will rather die than to ask for help. Classic pride. But they don't know that "where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety." Don't be too proud to enlist the help of people when you can't pull through some difficulties. That's one of the reasons you have them in your life. Enlist help.

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:

Are you in any difficult situation now, and you've tried all you can to come out of it by yourself, but keep failing repeatedly, beloved, call for help now. You will be glad you did.
