he inquired of the Lord, saying, "Shall I go and attack these Philistines?" The Lord answered him, "Go, attack the Philistines and save Keilah." 1 Samuel 23:2
David checked with God! Before he invested his time and resources into a new venture, David did an inquiry of the Lord! And, the Lord responded.
You and I will make some major decisions this week. We will perhaps make decisions that could impact us, and those around us, for the rest of our lives.
We we make choices about our finances, our careers, our homes. We will choose friends and give guidance to our children. We will decide where we go and what we do once we get there. Some of us may direct the activities of others. We will interact with strangers, many who will be lost, and without Jesus.
A word of caution and remider to us all: CHECK IN WITH GOD!
Let's let God direct our activities this week! Let's put Him first on every "to do" list. Let's consult with the Master Planner as we start our week!
Let everyday this week begin with a time of reflection, of quietness before our Almighty God as He carefully instructs us on the way we should go!
Just like He did for David, God will tell us when to proceed! And, it will always be perfect timing!
