Week 28 – 13th July 2014

What He says He does

  1. Isaiah 11:2

  • Judges 20:18
    And the children of Israel arose, and went up to the house of God, and asked counsel of God, and said, Which of us shall go up first to the battle against the children of Benjamin? And the Lord said, Judah shall go up first.
  • The Counsel of God is more than just advice, it is the decisive and authoritative declaration of God’s unfettered will in a matter in life


  1. 2 Tim 1:6-7

  • Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
  • The Spirit of God will do all that is necessary to strengthen us, including getting rid of the unnecessary and stirring up all that God has deposited into our spirit through His Holy Spirit


  1. How do we receive the Spirit of Counsel and Might into our lives?

  • Psalm 25:14
    The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning. (Amp)
  • Whatever God has promised in His Covenant, He will do and He will reveal the secrets of His Kingdom to us when we draw near to Him in intimacy
