WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THIS JESUS?
(Listen to divine counsel)
“While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of Him.” Mathew 27:19
Praise be to God for His renewed mercies towards us this morning.
In the past few days, we have been looking at the events that lead to the crucifixion of Jesus. We have seen some of the negative voices that influenced Pilate to succumb to the will of the people although he knew Jesus was innocent. It is evident from the Bible text that Pilate received counsel from his wife. She emphatically stated that Jesus was a “just Man”.
Pilate didn’t adhere to the counsel from his wife and her dream and that caused one of the greatest tragedies in history. Anytime you refuse counsel, you create an avenue for the enemy to manipulate you into destruction.
“Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14
Always note that God is ready to speak to us on a daily basis. He speaks in different ways through the written Word, the spoken word, the Spirit of God, our inner spirit, counsel from a godly person, visions and dreams, and through unsolicited prophecy. We just have to listen and follow.
“Wealth, fame and education are not guarantees to good success. When you walk in God’s counsel for your life, you position yourself for good success.”
May you do not lose your salvation because you failed to listen to divine counsel.
Pray with me;
My heavenly Father, lead me by your Spirit to walk in divine counsel. Give me the discipline to adhere to wisdom in Jesus' name.
