Topic: GODLY COUNSEL PRODUCES WISE DECISIONS (Open heavens 2019 Friday 10 May 2019)
Memorise: Proverbs 11:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Read: Genesis 41:33-40 King James Version (KJV) Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye
33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.
34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.
35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.
36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.
37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.
38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?
39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:
40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

Open heavens 2019 Friday 10 May 2019 MESSAGE:
In our daily lives, we need godly counsel. More importantly, people in power need to realise that they need godly counsel in order to rule well. Godly counsel is vital for the success of any human endeavour. I pray that you will never suffer the famine of godly counsel all the days of your life in Jesus Name. In todays Bible reading, Pharaoh demonstrated the character of a wise king. He dreamt a dream which he could not interpret, and he sought counsel to get its interpretation. Amazingly, it was Pharaohs cupbearer who offered him the counsel that led to his problem being solved. The counsel offered by the cupbearer was the result of his encounter with an oracle of God in prison. There are many lessons we can learn from this story, first of which is not to despise those whom God has placed around us, and not to ignore their counsel.
Pharaoh could have dismissed the cupbearers counsel as coming from an uneducated person taking undue advantage of his access to the king. Furthermore, who would have expected to find a genuine and accurate interpreter of dreams in a prison yard? It was indeed the God-factor that made the king seek after Joseph, for all odds were against him. The most interesting thing in the story is Pharaohs decision to put Joseph in charge of the massive project that resulted from the dreams interpretation. How unsearchable are the ways of God!
A lot of godly counsel has been dismissed by people in leadership, leading to their downfall. This has also had destructive effects on the people they lead. Godly counsel can lead to wise decisions that will bring prosperity to communities, cities, nations and organisations. Leaders in all spheres of life should also learn from how Pharaoh placed a round peg in a round hole to achieve good governance.
Pharaoh could have insisted on appointing an indigenous Egyptian to be in charge of the enormous project to be undertaken. He could also have appointed his own child or relative, and that would have bastardised the divine arrangement that God had put in place to save the whole of his empire. Beloved, where do you seek counsel from? Do you go to God and his servants or to the devil and his soothsayers? Remember, only godly counsel can produce wise decisions in your lifes endeavours, regardless of the vessel God uses to deliver it. The Lord has on several occasions used my children in the Lord to give counsel that has taken our ministry to the level where it is today.
This is why I cherish all the children the Lord has given to me in the faith, and why I endeavour to train them in the ways of the Lord, so that they in turn can be channels of godly counsel to me and those I set them over. This has worked and is still working for us.
Father, help me to recognise and accept the godly counsel You send my way, in Jesus Name.
Hymnal: Open heavens 2019 Friday 10 May 2019
Sing Hymn 3: Trust and Obey
1 When we walk with the Lord
in the light of his word,
what a glory he sheds on our way!
While we do his good will,
he abides with us still,
and with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey,
for there’s no other way
to be happy in Jesus,
but to trust and obey.
2 Not a shadow can rise,
not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear,
not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3 Not a burden we bear,
not a sorrow we share,
but our toil he doth richly repay;
not a grief or a loss,
not a frown or a cross,
but is best if we trust and obey.
4 But we never can prove
the delights of his love
until all on the altar we lay;
for the favour he shows,
for the joy he bestows,
are for them who will trust and obey.
5 Then in fellowship sweet
we will sit at his feet,
or we’ll walk by his side in the way;
what he says we will do,
where he sends we will go;
never fear, only trust and obey.
Open heavens 2019 Friday 10 May 2019 Daily Devotional guide was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer’s Ministries. The life of Enoch Adejare Adeboye is a fulfilment of the scriptures in Zechariah 4: 10 which declare, “despise not the days of small beginnings”. Born in 1942 into a humble family in the village of Ifewara, Osun State located in the South-western part of Nigeria Enoch Adeboye often humorously states that his family was so poor that even the poor people called them poor. As a matter of fact, he unashamedly tells his congregation that he never owned shoes until he was eighteen years of age. What he possessed though were physical intangibles such as focus, consistency, diligence, ambition, a brilliant mind and a determination to succeed in life.
In 1956 Enoch Adeboye was admitted into Ilesha Grammar School, Ilesha, Osun State, Western Nigeria and as a youth he discovered a passion for books, and an aptitude for science and in particular the field of Mathematics. This led to an academic journey in the field of Mathematics against incredible odds including but not limited to finances, the Nigerian Civil War and academic politics. By the time he was done, Enoch Adeboye had obtained not only a Bachelors (BSc.) degree in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria, Nnsukka, Nigeria in 1967, but also a Masters (MSc.) Degree in Hydrodynamics and a Doctorate Degree (PhD) in Applied Mathematics, both from the University of Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria in 1969 and 1975 respectively.
One of the motivations for these academic achievements was Enoch Adeboye’s passionate desire to become the youngest Vice-Chancellor (University President) of any one of the frontline Universities in Nigeria. It did seem that his academic ambition would be realized as his academic career flourished. However, this was not to be as a greater career awaited him in the service of the Lord. In 1967 Enoch Adeboye got married to his beloved wife Foluke Adenike Adeboye (nee Adeyokunnu).
