Joshua 9:14 from the Holy Bible, King James Version, “Then the men of Israel took some of their provisions; but they did not ask counsel of the Lord.” The men of Israel unknowingly did business with deceitful men. Had they asked God’s opinion first, He would have warned them. But they didn’t ask and they suffered for it.
I wonder how much easier life would be if we all learned to ask God’s opinion first.
Think about it. God is everywhere. He sees everything. He knows everything. He loves us. He created us. He wants what’s best for us. Doesn’t it make sense to ask God what He thinks about a matter before choosing to do it?
The men of Israel learned their lesson. The next time they needed to make a decision they asked God’s opinion, and they prevailed!
Prayer: God, teach me to ask your opinion before making important decisions. Amen.
