At church recently I’ve been looking at the life of David, seeing what we can take and use in our lives today.
What I‘ve found and taught on has not exactly been ‘rocket science’ though; the lessons to be honest have been pretty obvious.
Take this one from the start of 1 Samuel 23 for example.
When David was in trouble and had to make a decision he consulted the Lord.
He brought what he though he should do and asked the Lord for advice.
And once he checked and heard from the Lord he obeyed.
This is a lesson we all need to learn!
As I said it is not a deep theological lesson, it is a pretty obvious thing that we should all know.
The Word is not difficult; it is pretty simple to understand.
The other important point to take from this verse is that David was obviously going to the Lord again and again; the Word says ‘yet again’.
This implies he sought the advice of the Lord many, many times, and this is what we should mirror in our lives.
He knows best, we do not.
Take my advice and learn from the life of David; if you have a decision to make ask the Lord for his advice.
And then when you hear back do what He says!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you are interested in our lives and ready and willing to give us your advice”.
1 Samuel 23 v 4…..And David inquired of the Lord yet again. And the Lord answered him and said, Arise, go down to Keilah: for I will deliver the Philistines into thine hand
