Proverbs 20:18(KJV); Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
It is one thing for God to give you an instruction, it is another for Him to reveal the full counsel pertaining to that instruction.
In this life, I have seen men and women who left the presence of God having received only an instruction and did not wait on Him enough to hear the counsel that followed the instruction.
The result of this is that they got stuck as they tried to execute the instruction because God had not explained to them the pattern and His way of how they had to go about it.
Some of these people utterly frustrated the purpose of God upon their lives.
In Acts 20:27, the apostle Paul testifies to the fact that he received the fullness of the counsel regarding his assignment.
He said, “For I have not shunned to declare unto you ALL the counsel of God.” He received and heard ALL he had to receive and hear.
Because of this, he had the authority to say, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”( 2 Timothy 4:7).
While it is a commendable thing to hear the instructions of God, it is equally important that you also wait on Him for the counsel of that instruction. This is the guarantee that you will finish well.

GOLDEN NUGGET: While it is a commendable thing to hear the instructions of God, it is equally important that you also wait on Him for the counsel of that instruction. This is the guarantee that you will finish well.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the wisdom You continually impart in my spirit. By the knowledge I have received today, my life of prayer and communion has been redefined. I know what to ask and how to wait on You, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
