My Life with God

We Must Ask For Guidance

ICDimage1Some time later, David inquired of the Lord: “Should I go to one of the towns of Judah?” The Lord answered him, “Go.” Then David asked, “Where should I go?” “To Hebron,” the Lord replied. (2 Samuel 2:1)

We must ask for guidance. We don’t have the answers, and there’s no reason for us to try to figure it all out by ourselves. God wants to help. He wants to direct us. When we have a posture of submission, we trust Him enough to ask. We don’t always get as clear and simple answers as David gets here, but when we fully trust God, His answers don’t need to fill our checkbox so we can quickly move on. What is more important, the question or answer? Consider submission and how it plays into both.
