I find that for me the best type of Counsellor is one in whose quiet presence I am invited to do my own thinking. The right question at the right moment can help. It can feel like a helpful hand on the rudder when thoughts are perhaps all at sea.
Why not sit down with Jesus today as He asks you to talk through and think through the question Elijah was asked: “What are you doing here?” God knows the answer to that question already. He asks it so that we can come easily or with a struggle into true understanding of reality. That’s where we meet the real God.
