So David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” -I Samuel 30:8 NKJV

David made an inquiry of the Lord regarding his battle strategy. God responded and gave him direction.

We too, should make inquiries of the Lord about direction in our own lives. Should I apply for this job? Should I marry this person? Should I buy this house? Should I invest in these stocks?

Once we make our inquiry, we wait for an answer. Let’s not be impatient and act before God responds. Once He answers, no matter how unusual it seems, act on that answer immediately.

Inquiring of the Lord will save us from bumping our heads and heartache. We may think we have it all figured out, but the Lord knows all. Let’s seek Him on all our decisions.
