I. SON OF MAN this year you need a counsellor. And Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not still a prophet of the LORD here, that we may inquire of Him? Is there no one to offer you counselling? Seek counselling in the matter confronting you. As a leader, you need counsellors who will tell you the truth sometimes against the tidings of the day. You as a youth need a counsellor; as a couple, you need advisors; as an employee, as an employer, and as a Minister of the Gospel you cannot be successful without godly counsellors. WHO ARE YOUR INNER CHAMBER MEMBER(S) WHO DAILY GIVE YOU COUNSELLING?
II. DAUGHTER OF ZION, so the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of the LORD; but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.” And Jehoshaphat said, “Let not the king say such things!” You need Prophet Micaiah who will tell you the hard truth and not blemish the facts. Don't worry when some people hate you because you speak the truth. Surely, surely, I say unto you the truth which is light will overcome falsehood which is darkness. Stand for what is right, and don't sell your birthright for a portage of a meal, it will lead you to destruction. WHERE THERE IS NO COUNSEL, THE PEOPLE FALL; BUT IN THE MULTITUDE OF COUNSELLORS, THERE IS SAFETY.
III. MY BELOVED SISTERS AND BROTHERS IN CHRIST, avoid paid prophets who will prophesy for the wages and not what God says. The king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, having put on their robes, sat each on his throne, at a threshing floor at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them. As an advisor, don't give bandwagon counselling. Then the messenger who had gone to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, “Now listen, the words of the prophets with one accord encourage the king. Please, let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak encouragement.” SPEAK ACCORDING TO GOD WHAT SAYS, NOT WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT TO HEAR.
IV. BELOVED BRETHREN; and Micaiah said, “As the LORD lives, whatever the LORD says to me, that I will speak.” Then he came to the king; and the king said to him, “Micaiah, shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall we refrain?” And he answered him, “Go and prosper, for the LORD will deliver it into the hand of the king....” Then he said, “I saw all Israel scattered on the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd. And the LORD said, ‘These have no master. Let each return to his house in peace.” Be the standard at all times. Seek for good counselling and you shall sail any troubled waters of 2023. This is DIVINE COUNSELLING sent forth through the Authority and Power of Christ Jesus and serve the Brethren through God's Vessel Francis Ameyibor, Yes! Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days.
V. 2023 MY DIVINE YEAR TO PURSUE, CAPTURE, AND TAKE POSSESSION – Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
PRAYER: I pray that the eyes of our hearts may be enlightened this year in order that we may know the purposes and plans of God for us in 2023 and enjoy the riches of his glorious inheritance through Christ Jesus’ name AMEN!
