Moments of Faith Daily Devotional 16th February 2024 By Prophet Frank Udoh

Title: “You Will Succeed if You Adhere to This Advice”

Scripture Reading: Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV) – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”


In a world filled with competing voices and conflicting advice, it can be challenging to discern the path to success and victory. However, the Bible provides timeless wisdom and counsel that leads to true and lasting success in every area of life. In this devotional, titled “If You Follow This Counsel, You Will Win,” let’s explore the transformative power of God’s counsel and how following it leads to victory in every circumstance.


Reflect on the words of King Solomon in Proverbs 3:5-6, where he exhorts us to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and to lean not on our own understanding. This foundational principle of seeking God’s guidance and wisdom is the key to success and victory in every aspect of life. When we submit to God’s counsel and direction, He promises to make our paths straight and lead us to victory.

God’s counsel is unlike any other advice or wisdom the world offers. It is rooted in His perfect knowledge, wisdom, and love for us. When we align our lives with His Word and seek His guidance in prayer, we tap into a source of wisdom that surpasses human understanding. God’s counsel provides clarity, direction, and strength to navigate life’s challenges and obstacles.

What does it mean to follow God’s counsel? It begins with trusting Him wholeheartedly and surrendering our own plans and desires to His will. It involves seeking His guidance through prayer, studying His Word, and listening to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. As we submit to God’s counsel and follow His leading, we experience His faithfulness and guidance in every area of our lives.

When we follow God’s counsel, victory is not merely a possibility; it is a promise. God assures us that He will lead us triumphantly through every trial, temptation, and adversity we face. Our success and victory are not dependent on our own strength or wisdom but on God’s power working within us. As we trust in Him and follow His counsel, we can walk in confidence, knowing that He is faithful to fulfill His promises.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the counsel and wisdom you provide through your Word and Spirit. Help us to trust in you with all our hearts and to lean not on our own understanding. Guide us in the paths of righteousness and victory, and give us the strength to follow your counsel faithfully. May our lives be a testimony to your faithfulness and the power of following your guidance. In Jesus’ name, amen.
