Guidance vs. Advice
There’s a big difference between advice and guidance. Advice normally comes from someone who wants to see you succeed but not ‘do better’ than them. Guidance typically comes from someone with a lot of wisdom. Someone that will steer you in the right direction.
In Matthew 4:1 The devil advised Jesus to do such things as jump off a cliff or worship him. He knew the devils intentions and didn’t fall into the temptation presented to him.
Is someone else’s advice for our lives greater than the guidance that God gives us? Perhaps he has sent someone in our lives to lead us down the right path but we can’t seem to weed out what’s real vs what’s fake?
That’s when prayer becomes relevant. Seek God in all that you do and he will guide all of your steps.
