MESSAGE: – Open Heavens 30 May 2024 Thursday Daily Devotional

Our Bible reading for today tells us that without counsel, purposes are defeated. In other words, if you plan to do something and you don’t have any advice, you might not be able to achieve it. Proverbs 20:18 says: Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war. Getting advice or counsel, as the Bible calls it, is very needful. Do not begin any endeavour without getting good advice.

Proverbs 24:6 says, “…in multitude of counsellors there is safety.” When you surround yourself with many good advisers, you will be safe and unlikely to make costly mistakes in life. Note that it is not every piece of advice that you should take. God said in Proverbs 8:14 that counsel and sound wisdom are His. Every counsel you take must ultimately be from God, and as such, you should ensure that every bit of advice you receive aligns with the word of God before you accept them. This is because some clever people might come to you with pieces of advice that sound very good but that are ungodly and misleading. God is the best counsellor.

In fact, that is one of the names of the Lord Jesus Christ according to Isaiah 9:6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Whenever you get advice from anybody, check for what the word of God says concerning it.

If you discover that it is not in agreement with the word of God, then you should know that it is not coming from godly wisdom, and you must reject it. This is why you need to know the word of God yourself so that when somebody gives you a bit of advice, you will be able to differentiate if it aligns with the word of God or not. Be like the Berean Christians; always ensure that you search the Scriptures to confirm everything you hear, irrespective of who says it (Acts 17:10-12).

Seek God’s counsel in everything that you do. Study His word and listen to His advice through the mouth of many wise counsellors who are children of God and who understand His word. This way, you will remain on the right path and will not be led astray.

Key Point – Open Heavens 30 May 2024

Before acting on any advice, ensure it aligns with the word of God.

Open Heavens 30 May 2024 Thursday Hymn

HYMN 28: Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah

1 Guide me, O my great Redeemer,

pilgrim through this barren land;

I am weak, but you are mighty;

hold me with your powerful hand.

Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,

feed me now and evermore,

feed me now and evermore.

2 Open now the crystal fountain,

where the healing waters flow.

Let the fire and cloudy pillar

lead me all my journey through.

Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,

ever be my strength and shield,

ever be my strength and shield.

3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,

bid my anxious fears subside.

Death of death, and hell’s Destruction,

land me safe on Canaan’s side.

Songs of praises, songs of praises

I will ever sing to you,

I will ever sing to you.
