August 19-He Inquired of the LORD

Journey through 1 Samuel

1 Samuel 23.1-6 “he inquired of the LORD”

Focus Verse-1 Samuel 23.4

Once again David inquired of the LORD, and the LORD answered him, “Go down to Keilah, for I am going to give the Philistines into your hand.”

Insight-I really appreciate how David consistently seeks God’s guidance concerning what he should do.  Not only that, rather than fearing the people when they doubt whether God really wants them to defend the village of Keilah, he essentially says, “Ok, let’s ask God and see what He wants us to do.”  Then, not only did he inquire of God, but they also immediately obeyed and followed through with what God led them to do.

Active Response-I need to be more consistent with looking to God for direction.  Not just in the big things, but in everything I do.  I want to learn to not just be consistent in seeking God’s direction, but also that I would learn to follow with immediate action.

Loving Leader, help me to seek Your guidance and to follow it closely in all that I do.  Amen.
