Listen to advice and accept discipline

Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:20-21 NIV

It is important in our lives that we listen to wisdom and stay teachable throughout our lives.  People become unteachable when they become filled with pride and believe some how they have arrived.  But it is simply a deception of the enemy because as long as we are living on this earth we are in constant growth, process, and transformation.

If we will simply draw near to the Lord each day He will lead and guide us in our lives as to which way we should go.  The only way to develop intimacy in our relationship with God is by spending time with Him.  Those who fail to invest in their relationship with the Lord will have a very shallow relationship that will only be surface deep.

But for those who are willing to invest they will develop a deep intimacy and fellowship with the Lord.  We will come to recognize His voice and His leading.  It will carry us throughout the course of our lives and is vital in us becoming the sons and daughters that God has called us to be.
