So the Israelites examined their food, but they did not consult the Lord. -Joshua 9:14 NLT

Because Joshua and his leaders didn’t consult the Lord, they were tricked.

Consulting God on every move we make and everything we do is highly important. We only have a limited picture, but God sees it all. And because God sees it all, He can prepare us for things to come and traps to avoid.

We may think a business deal will be our ticket to success, but God sees that it will end miserably. We may think we should study a certain section, but God may tell you to study another section.

We should never get to a place where we’re too smart to consult God. He has our best interests at heart. Let Him lead you.
