New Glory Devotional: EMBRACING DIVINE COUNSEL – Saturday, October 13, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.” (Proverbs 19:21).

Read: Proverbs 19: 20-21

Apart from hearing from the Almighty, one great access that every believer must crave is the ability to see correctly. You can only access the miraculous when you are sufficiently graced to see through the eyes of the spirit the provisions of God for your utmost deliverance and sustenance.

“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29).

The treasures of heaven are not found in the surface they abound in the depth of divine knowledge, counsel and wisdom.

You ability to discover God’s provision for you in the miraculous is the only gateway to eternal life of peace and prosperity. God has his plans for you but the revelation of this lofty plans is the greatest challenge of my people. While you run helter skelter, God is simply watching and waiting to see what will become of your human labour that is void of divine favour.

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

Man is so limited in everything. If you can only unravel the counsels of God for every situation of your life, you will discover there and then that you are greatly loved and never abandoned. You are only frustrated when your mission on earth lacks divine touch and wise counsel. The frustration of so many businesses today came as a result total dependence on human skills, connections and expertise. Know man can receive anything except it’s been given by the Lord. If your desire is not the counsel of God for your destiny, you will struggle all your life to maintain and sustain it. This is the simple reason why many conclude today that marriage is about management as against enjoyment and peace.

“There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.” (Proverbs 19:21). If you will succeed eternally, you need the counsel of the Lord. If your relationship will end up in a fruitful marriage, you must secure divine counsel and leading. If you won’t be frustrated on that project or business adventure, you need to urgently approach your maker for direction and the revelation of His will. Your decision to out smart God is your readiness to struggle in regret eternally. There’s no better way than the route that God has charted for your entire prosperity and safety. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11). You are limited in thought and wisdom. Doing it alone is dangerous. That’s why you see so many single brothers and sisters returning with regrets after 3-4 months or years of fruitless dates with several ungodly partners. Dating is nothing different from gambling. You are simply toying with your emotions when you can’t see through the eyes of the spirit what God has planned for you maritally. It’s better never to be married than to fall into the wrong hands. Marriages void of the counsel of the Lord will surely lead to eternal pain and frustration coupled with deepest regrets. You need to be guided in your quest for a life partner both in marriage and all other life adventures.

“But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:10). You can only posses your portion in the miraculous through the Holy Spirit connection. If you are not filled you will live as a fool. If you are not controlled and directed by the Lord you will live a miserable life without knowing. You must be a genuine child of God to access the depths and secrets benefits of the almighty. Your prayer and word life is the channel to receiving from God. There are also men and women of God loaded with divine wisdom and experience whom God has position to lead you in the way to follow. “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.” (Proverbs 11:14). It’s never to late beloved, there’s still a solution if you have missed it in that courtship, business or marriage. Seek the Lord in prayers and move closer to the channels of eternal breakthrough in Christ Jesus.


Father, open my eyes of understand and grant me access to Your counsel for my glorious destiny. Don’t allow me to miss my portion in the miraculous.
