Saul said, “Let’s go down after the Philistines at night; we will rout them until the break of day. We won’t leave any of them alive!” They replied, “Do whatever seems best to you.” But the priest said, “Let’s approach God here.”
1 Samuel 14:36 NET
Thank goodness for people who remind us that we should approach and ask God for His will.
Saul could have made a mistake doing what he thought was the right thing to do. He was beating the Philistines. He wanted to continue the battle, but one of the priest encouraged him to ask the Lord.
This should be the path that we take as we navigate life. We should inquire of the Lord every step of the way.
What a great thing you can do for others when you remind them to seek the Lord’s counsel. What a great thing someone does for you when they remind you to seek Him!
God is active in our lives. This is what we see throughout all of Scripture. Through the Holy Spirit, He will show you where you need to go and what you need to do.
Father, guide me and lead me through the power of the Holy Spirit. Show me the path that I should take, that my life would be pleasing to You.
