It’s not uncommon in trials where a lot is at stake to have two attorneys representing the client–lead counsel and second chair. The best lead counsel know everything about the case. They have the wisdom and experience to handle any situation. They anticipate the problems with their case AND the strengths of the opposition. They have a plan for how to win a favorable verdict. This is attorney you want on your side. This is the one you can trust. If our choice of lead counsel is so important for one earthly trial, isn’t it even more important for the great life God has planned for us?

Often I make myself, a friend, family member or a colleague–lead counsel in my life. But–God knows more than anyone! Furthermore, He knows the heart of every person involved my decisions. He has a transcript of their past and He knows their every motive for the future. He knows if they will hurt me or if we are on the same side. When my heart is inside His, His presence gives me the wisdom of His divine instincts. I’ve seen Him do it. His Word says: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.” (Daniel 2:20-22) THIS is our Amazing Father!

When He is lead counsel in our life, He reveals what’s hidden by darkness. He reveals truth. He gives us wisdom to do our job, raise our family, be a friend, etc. He gives us everything to accomplish the amazing destiny He planned for each of us! When we are second chair to HIM, we always have a wiser and more experienced counsel to consult. We are not overwhelmed because we walk fearlessly with our Omnipotent, Omniscient Father. Our future is never more secure than when we are constantly dependent upon Him. He is our best lead counsel!
