Wednesday – History

Joshua 7-9

Highlight Verse:

“So the Israelites examined their food, but they did not consult the Lord.”

Joshua 9:14 NLT

This was referring to when the Gibeonites deceived the people of Israel. The decision seemed so obvious to them that they didn’t stop to inquire of the Lord.

Tonight, one of my daughters asked me to order something on Amazon that we had talked about earlier. I told her to sleep on it and if she still wanted it tomorrow, I’d order it for her. (She was paying me for it). By the end of the evening she told me not to order it because she wanted to save her money for something else.

Why is it that we are sometimes so confident that we don’t bother praying about a decision? I’ve done it. Sometimes, those decisions turn out bad in ways we couldn’t possibly imagine before we made the decision.

Of course hearing from God is a topic all to itself.

Have you made decisions that you wish you had talked to God about first?

How do you go about asking God to make His will known in a decision?
