Are You REALLY Suggesting Almighty God Cares About My Emotions?
Don’t Miss Another Free Daily Session With Your “Wonderful Counselor”
“I tried to understand but it was painful, until I….” (Psalm 73:16-17) Until you did what? I need to know, because I have this pain in my heart and I don’t know how to get rid of it. Asaph the psalmist knew how to have his emotional and mental pain resolved. It was simple. It was easy. It is a step I can take every day, and my emotional and mental pain can also be healed by the Wonderful Counselor!
Why I stopped trying to be my own therapist
Asaph was in a downward spiral. He had tried to obey the Lord and what had he gotten for his troubles? A chance to watch the wicked grow fat and rich and happy while he got nothing but misfortune and suffering. It was frustrating, depressing and taking a toll on his faith. He was becoming envious, angry and bitter, questioning why he even tried to stay pure and whether God really cared about him at all. And the more he thought about it all, the more he tried to think himself out of his funk, the deeper into it he went (Ps. 73). Sound familiar?
Fortunately, Asaph knew he wasn’t the best person to counsel himself. He knew that his own observations and conclusions were hopelessly inadequate for true understanding and healing. And he knew where to go for a better perspective – a perspective that would overcome his negative emotions, heal his heart and put a song of praise and thanksgiving in his mouth instead of complaints: “It was troublesome in my sight until I came into the sanctuary of God…With Your counsel You will guide me…” Asaph knew enough to stop trying to counsel himself and seek out the Wonderful Counselor.
I won’t be convinced that it’s all going to be okay
Are you ready to stop trying to “counsel” yourself, to talk yourself out of whatever painful emotion is eating away at your heart? Are you ready to admit that logic and reasoning are never going to take away your depression? Are you ready to give the Wonderful Counselor a chance to finally replace the negativity and darkness in your spirit with joy and light?
I have stepped from self-counseling to heavenly counseling, not only for myself, but whenever I counsel others. Can anything beat direct counseling from My loving Heavenly Father? How could I possibly improve on that? When we step from self-counsel to heavenly-counsel we enter into peace.
With all the troubles in the world surrounding us, you can live in faith, hope and love, and I will teach you how. God has changed me and I will explain step by step how He did it. And yes, it will work for you too. This new counseling approach takes practice. Why not practice receiving wonderful counsel? Life becomes richer, easier, more fun and more fulfilling.
Listen in on some sessions with my Wonderful Counselor
The Lord spoke to me: Let’s laugh as we do this. People like to laugh. You are calling them to laughter. Laughter heals the heart. A merry heart does good like medicine. Have you taken your medicine yet this morning? It should be taken three times a day. So make sure you get your three belly laughs in each day, for without them, you could get sick. (Prov. 15:13; 17:22)
Laughter is at the heart of the gospel
It’s all about living in the mindset of faith, hope and love, and that sure can’t be done without laughter. Laughter heals. Anger destroys. Laughter sets one free, fear entraps. Laughter lets you experience joy and hope for your future. Hopelessness brings the darkness of gloom into your heart.
So laughter is surely at the heart of the gospel. It produces the heart realities I spoke of: faith, hope and love. These three abide forever. They will never perish. They are the fuel upon which you are designed to run. (1 Cor. 13:13)
Only true laughter comes from above
Come laugh with Me. For apart from Me there is NO TRUE LAUGHTER. There is the laughter of this world which is weak and fake and transient. It is not of Me. It is not from the heart. It is not based on eternal things. It is shallow, fleeting, and temporal. It is not of Me and it does not heal the heart. So come, laugh with Me saith the Lord of Hosts. (Ps. 2:4; Eccl. 3:4)
God sits in heaven, laughing
I sit on my throne in heaven and I laugh. I laugh at the foolishness of foolish men. I laugh at the devices of evil men who think they will remove Me from their midst. Have they accomplished that yet? They have been trying for thousands of years, and have they succeeded? No! And again I say unto you no! They have not. More people are alive today who believe in Me and My heaven and My miracles than ever before in the history of My world. So have they won? Have they succeeded? Have they accomplished their goal of ridding society and their lives from My presence? NO, and again I say NO! They have not, and they WILL NOT! (Ps. 2:4; Isa. 9:7)
Who is worried about the wicked?
So do not fret yourself about evil doers for they shall not succeed. They shall not prevail for they are fighting against the Most High God. They are fighting against Me. Do you think mere man has a chance to win over his Creator and his Sustainer? No, I think not, saith the Lord of Hosts. For I give them the very breath they breathe. I fill their hearts and minds with fear or with faith. I confuse them or give them clarity of thought. I raise up their enemies against them or I grant them peace on all sides. How can this kind of a God lose any battle with mankind? He cannot. I will not lose. So fret not yourself because of evil doers. (Ps. 37:1; Prov. 16:7; Isa. 13:17)
Who is inadequate?
And you feel you are so small and inadequate, that you cannot accomplish that which I have called you to do. Well, of course you can’t in yourself, but since it is MY destiny which I have called you into, it will be accomplished through the strength of MY Spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts. It will not be accomplished through the puny efforts of man. It will be accomplished by the strength of the Lord of Hosts. I will prevail! I will equip! I will accomplish! I will conquer! It will be My victory in and through you, saith the Lord of Hosts. So trust in Me and do not look to your own devices. I will supernaturally prepare a path for you to walk on. It will be the work of My hand so that no man can take the glory. (Phil. 4:19 Jn. 6:63)
God loves our weakness
I use the weak things of this earth to confound the wise. So do not be wise in your own conceits. Be wise in the strength of the Lord. Learn of Me and My ways, so that in your weakness, you may be made strong. Know that by the power of MY strength the battle is won, the victory is received, the gift is given. It is not of man, least any man should boast. (Ps. 71:16; 1 Cor. 1:27; 2 Cor. 12:9-11)
So boast in the Lord and in the strength of His right arm. Because His arm is not so short that it cannot save. His hand is not so weak that it cannot deliver. Make sure your sins do not block My strength from flowing, for then you will have wisdom and then you will experience success (Gal. 6:14). Behold I have spoken. Behold it is to be done.
How was that for wonderful counsel? Do you feel better? I know I do! You just received wonderful counsel from the Wonderful Counselor Himself.

Practical, Outrageous and Worth $1,000,000
“The course, ‘Pure in Heart’ (former title of ‘Counseled by God’) is worth a million dollars to me. It moved the issues of life from the theoretical and theological right down into the heart. In the second chapter Mark made this outrageous statement that every accusative thought is of the Accuser, and every positive, life-giving, up-building thought is from the Holy Spirit, the giver of life. I realized that 80 percent of my own thinking was negative. It so smote me in my heart. I prayed, ‘God, this is completely unacceptable – completely! I cannot go through my life with 80 percent of my mind yielded to the enemy, to the Accuser!’ … I remember responding, ‘Oh, God, You know I need You to help me with this one, I need You to give me a jab every time my mind starts to be negative and critical about people because I don’t want to do this, Lord.’ I knew I didn’t have the resources and the self-discipline to get on top of it. I was afraid to promise Him that I would stop. I needed a miracle that would transform my heart and thinking, so my thoughts could be positive and life-giving.”
Dr. John Arnott, a CLU graduate
Founding Pastor of Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship
(from “The Importance of Forgiveness” pages 7,8)
What does it mean to be Counseled by God?
A genuine word from the Lord heals the broken-hearted. All the “how to” books in the world can never do what a rhema word from God can do for the inner man.
“The words that I (Jesus) have spoken to you are spirit and are life.” (Jn. 6:63)
But shouldn’t I feel bad about being a dirty sinner?
We help you become absolutely clear in your heart who the accuser is and who the Comforter is. We renounce all accusative thoughts including all thoughts which steal our faith, hope and love. You will discover the five senses of your spirit and see from Scripture how God filled these five senses in Abraham’s life and birthed a miracle out through this father of faith. You will learn to follow the same steps and be a son or daughter of faith. You will begin to incubate ONLY God’s thoughts in the five senses of your spirit, and birth ONLY His kingdom of peace, light and joy in the Holy Spirit, never satan’s kingdom of gloom and darkness.
You will learn to let God speak to your heart and counsel you about the basic emotional pressures of life, letting Him replace them with His opposites as His voice releases His grace within your heart.
Are you plagued by worry, fear and anxiety? When you listen only to what the Lord is saying, all that will be replaced by faith!
Does anger, frustration or bitterness simmer just below the surface of your heart, ready to erupt if you don’t maintain constant control? Come to the Counselor Who knows exactly what to say in this moment, and unveils His view of the canvas of life, which will transform that wrath into divine love.
Are you weighed down by guilt over all the things you’ve done and all the things you have left undone – a guilt that steals your confidence and makes the future look bleak? Allow the Author to unlock His secret plot twists which shall redeem all things for His glory, and you will find hope springing forth in your heart!
Do you look at yourself with disgust and despair, feeling like you are inferior to pretty much everyone else and you can never measure up? Allow your Father to show you the masterpiece He has created and re-created you to be as you find your identity in Him!
Today is YOUR day!
We guarantee your heart will be lighter and freer as a result of this course. We even teach you the principles of inner healing, so you can allow Jesus to walk with you through your darkest moments and heal them with the peace of His presence.
And finally, we teach you how to die moment-by-moment to the strivings of your flesh, and draw instead upon the in-working power of His Spirit so that you are able to be transformed by His light.
What could be better than this? Today is your day to receive healing in your heart. Why endure the pain any longer?
Lives transformed as people are counseled by God!
Healed from depression, got married and landed a job!
“Counseled by God has played a huge role in cementing my healing from depression in the autumn of 2009. This book has provided a stream of hope, confidence, passion and love, which has led me to marriage, to paid employment, to voluntary activities and to a greater-than-ever love of God and of people, including myself. To me, this book has been a miraculous and supernatural study guide. I am so grateful to God for His inspiring the creation of this book. I so want to promote this book to friends as ‘the best thing since sliced bread’. ”
Simon John Townend

I now have deliverance with assurance
by Camille Stevens, a CLU student
Do you feel like no matter how much you serve God, you really should be doing more? Do you ever wonder if the more time you give to “ministry”, the more God will love you? Do you think you just might earn extra points with Him based on the number of hours you spend in church a week? Do you feel guilty saying “no”?
If so, read this. Camille shares her journey of being counseled by God through condemnation, anger and more with refreshing openness and honesty, in a way we all can relate to. You’ll feel better just for reading it!
Peace like I’d never known
by Christine Taimanglo, a CLU student
“Before taking this course, I had feelings of depression, anger, fear and guilt. As I went through the course, God spoke to me time and time again about what I needed to do to overcome these emotions. By the end of the course, I had such peace like I’d never known before in my life. I’d recommend this course to anyone who is struggling in these areas. If applied, it can make a difference.” Click here for her story.
How much time should we invest learning to receive God’s wonderful counsel?
If people from Genesis to Revelation received healing from the Wonderful Counselor, is it not in our best interest to master this skill? Is it not better than a psychologist, a psychiatrist or even counsel from your pastor? This is direct from God Himself! And yes, we always recommend you bounce all journaling calling for significant changes off from your three spiritual advisors, so you are sure to be running the race properly. I suggest you take three months, either individually or in a group, and fully internalize the principles of this Spirit-life training module.
