The Path

The Path

The Best Path:

This time GOD said, “Don’t attack them head-on. Instead, circle around behind them and ambush them from the grove of sacred trees.” (2 Samuel 5:23, MSG)

Word of the day:

A few months before today’s scripture, the Philistines were going up the same valley, and when David asked the Lord what to do, the Lord told them to attack. When the Philistines returned from their first defeat, perhaps David surmised: “There is no need to pray to God this time. I know what to do.” But David realized that yesterday’s information might not be relevant to today’s challenge, so he asked God again. , the same valley, but this time the Lord said, “I have a strategy for you.

God’s ways are not our ways. He doesn’t want you addicted to a recipe, He wants you to be addicted to Him. He wants you to develop this habit of receiving guidance on a daily basis, asking, “Lord, how do you want me to solve this problem? Lord, give me Your wisdom, Your thoughts, Your favour. This is how God guides you on the best path for your life. You can’t solve every problem the same way.

A prayer for today:

“Father, thank you for your promise that you will lead me on the best path of my life as long as I continue to seek your will. Thanks for not having to figure it out myself. Help me not to assume that I know what to do and can solve problems the same way. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
