Counsel of the Holy ~ Prophetic Insight

This morning I was contemplating an old song from Petra after a conversation with a friend and ministry colleague. It really reminds us of the importance of the Word of God in our lives. If we want to walk in wisdom, we must start by reading the scriptures. This lyric from the song resounded in my head, “Wisdom cries for all to read”.

I really sense there has been an assignment from the enemy robbing us of our desire and hunger for the Word of God. He knows it is life to us and has done his level best to distract us from our daily bread. It really needs to be daily bread or we will become spiritually malnourished. In the Name of Jesus, I break this assignment off you and decree fresh hunger to fall now!

This passage in Isaiah is an intriguing one. It is found in the context of judgement upon Israel. But I sense in these dark days we must draw near and heed the counsel of the Holy One of Israel afresh. It is life and health to us in this season of warfare we have entered into. We must open our mouths and speak hard sayings. For this, we need the wisdom of God. 

That say, “Let Him make speed and hasten His work, that we may see it; and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, that we may know it.” Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5:19-20 NKJV

Ponder these lyrics from Petra’s song “Counsel of the Holy” (1988) today concerning the importance of the Word of God in our lives. 

There is a light burning in the darkness

A book of Hope

A morning light

Breaking over the mountains

To where the eagle flies

It gives us wings to touch the sky

It is the wisdom of the wise

Counsel of the Holy

The written Word of God

Wisdom cries for all to read

Counsel of the Holy

The greatest book of all

Is the path of victory

A book of wonder

A book of life

A book of promise faithful and true

A book of miracles for all who will believe

A book of wisdom to all who will receive

The counsel of the Holy

The written Word of God

Wisdom cries for all to read

The counsel of the Holy

The greatest book of all

Is the path of victory

Wisdom cries for all to read

Wisdom cries for all to read

More precious than rubies

More precious than gold

Mighty is the wisdom of the Lord 

Get into the Word of God today. It is your lifeline.

Blessings,
