And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, “The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel.” For the Lord had ordained to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, so that the Lord might bring harm upon Absalom. 2 Samuel 17:14 ESV

A negative counsel is that which is against you plus the plans and purposes of God concerning you. Our text reveals how to overcome it.

Beloved, actions are based on understanding, understanding on knowledge, whereas knowledge is based on interpretation, interpretation on information and information on counsel. Whenever God is trusted and cried unto, He uses whatever is available to confuse and frustrate the wise and makes their counsel against the believer seem foolish and stupid, so they’ll remain rejected. Spiritual sensitivity always lead to right actions which are usually costly and right actions bring right results. Until you take the right action or actions, the Lord will not frustrate the counsel of the wicked and until frustrated you’ll never experience salvation.

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Lord God, help me remain spiritually sensitive, obedient and willing to make whatever sacrifice such sensitivity demands. Today and always, as I trust and call out to You, frustrate, defeat and turn into foolishness every evil and negative counsel that’s against me in Jesus name.
