The Lord ordained specific purposes for each life and to accomplish those we were never meant to “go it alone.” We cannot grow spiritually without the wise counsel of people He places in our lives—not just friends or one or two casual acquaintances, but a circle of those with integrity to speak up when something isn’t right. 

Isolated believers cause heartache for themselves and others. They either do not have or refuse to have a strong circle of mature believers to watch for them.

Unfortunately, it takes time, often years, to realize the damage done. The person on top today likely will not be then. We need an entourage of those highly developed in God’s Word with spiritual discernment to surround us—wise counselors, godly influences. 

For you and me life is no place to go it alone.
