Apostle Grace Lubega
Jeremiah 32:19 (KJV); Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:
In this world, ministries, careers, families and even entire nations are shipwrecked at the sea of bad decisions.
For a believer who suffers such a fate, the reason is usually that he or she did not look to God for divine counsel.
Our theme scripture tells us that God is GREAT IN COUNSEL. It means that no matter how difficult a situation is, no matter how conflicted you may feel in a given set of circumstances, no matter how complicated your choices may be, God always has a way out.
There is no situation for which God cannot tell you what to do.
Why do you feel stuck not knowing what to do? Why are you stranded in the depths of indecision as though the great counsellor has gone mute?
Some people are confused because they have consulted everybody around them and still do not know what to do. Others make decisions by popular vote depending on how many people seem to agree with it. The majority can be wrong but God is never wrong.
Live a life where God is the first point of counsel. Let your decisions be God-decisions because the God that is great in counsel is with you and is for you.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. I rest in the blessed assurance that You are the God who directs my ways and leads me in the paths of righteousness. I look to You as the fountain of wisdom. I make the right choices because I have You to guide me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
