“…Son of man, receive into your heart all my words that I speak to you and hear with your ears…”- Ezekiel 3:10 (NKJV)

Having spoken so much about the importance of magnifying spiritual counsel, it is important to understand that you have a responsibility to go for counselling whenever you find yourself in a situation that needs one. Unfortunately, I have discovered over the years many people don’t bother going for counsel because they feel they know it all, but your case should be different. Many years ago, I met a young man who categorically told me that he didn’t bother to meet a pastor for anything because he felt he knew more; yet this guy who was speaking was so broke and confused. I told him “no matter what you think you know; you must learn to go for more knowledge”. I took the time to lecture him on the importance of going to someone higher in spiritual authority for counsel because they did not just get to where they were by chance. I specifically told him that beyond knowledge, there are experiences one in spiritual authority may possess that he didn’t have. He finally repented of such arrogance and we prayed together. To the glory of God, the situation he had been battling for about six months came to an end in a week.

Beloved, you must learn to seek counsel in things that are unclear to you, so that you can receive guidance and, when given, lay hold of it tenaciously and value it. In Proverbs 15: 22 (AMP), the Bible says, “Where there is no counsel, purposes are frustrated, but with many counsellors they are accomplished.” Before you make major decisions in your life, be wise enough to seek spiritual counsel and accept it when it comes, don’t receive counsel and still go ahead to do the same thing you have in mind. The reason for counsel is so that your plans can be adjusted and executed to produce the desired results. Purposes and plans are established by counsel; and (only) with good advice make or carry on war (Proverbs 20:18 AMP). So, as you carry on with your activities today, hear counsel, receive instruction and accept correction, that you may be wise in the time to come.” God bless you!


If you want your plans to go well the way you want them, then receive counsel and value them!


Thank you, Heavenly Father, for giving me your word today, henceforth I will no longer take spiritual counsel for granted. I will always value it and it seriously because now I know that my life depends on it. I decree that as I go on this path, I am succeeding in every area of my life in Jesus name. Amen!
