GUIDED BY THE COUNSEL OF GOD

GUIDED BY THE COUNSEL OF GOD

It is always God’s pleasure to guide His children in the best way that He has cut out for their life’s journey. He leads us step by step, day by day, into His glorious plan for our lives. He has promised to do so, and He is always faithful to His Word. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11) (NKJV).  And His words also say, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you” (Psalm 32:8) (NIV).  His words never fail.

The Word of God is indeed the counsel of God so, whenever we ask God for directions, He gives us a Word in the scripture that is relevant to what we are seeking answers for. This is the reason the psalmist said, “your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105 -NKJV). When we choose to walk in the Word of God we walk in His light, His counsel, His purpose, His peace, and all His abundant blessings, which means every darkness must disappear around us because we carry His presence.

Therefore, as children of light I pray that you continue to cultivate a lifestyle of seeking God through His Word, through meditations, prayers, singing edifying songs of praise, and worship on a daily basis. Asking Him to speak to you expressly on a daily basis and to give you wisdom and direction on what to do in every given situation, being confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion (Philippians 1:6).

Whenever we allow the counsel of God to guide our lives, we find ourselves doing His will because the Word of God is the will of God. And God’s will, leads to destiny fulfilment following His Word in Psalm 73:24 (NKJV), “you will guide me with your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.”  This shows that God is never tired of receiving me to glory. This shows that God is never tired of leading us, provided we are not tired of asking for His leading and walking in obedience.

Our prayer should always be, “Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You” (Psalm 143:8N KJV).  May the voice of the Lord continue to come clearly to us day by day. I pray that the Lord sends His Word of guidance to us on a daily basis that we may fulfill our glorious destiny in Jesus’ name.
