    Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin, yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won't he much more clot...

Our thinking is often consumed with what is happening today, or tomorrow, or sometimes what happened yesterday. God thinks in the long term. He can see our entire life at once. Think of it like t...

Enemy At The Gates

  • This our bread we took hot for our supplies out of our houses on the day we went out to go to you; but now, behold, it is dry, and has become moldy. These wine skins, which we filled, were new; and behold, they are torn. These our garments and our shoes have become old because of the very long journey.' The men sampled their provisions, and didn't ask counsel from Yahweh's mouth. Joshua 9:12 WEB

    One day some strangers came into the Israelite camp and said that they were from a faraway land. They had intentionally dressed in ragged clothing, and they carried old supplies like stale bread and cracked wine skins. They wanted to make a deal with the Israelites who were gradually taking the Promised Land.

    The Israelite leaders went through their supplies, saw the old bread, the cracked wine skins and were convinced. They were so confident that they had this correct that they did not bother to pray and ask God about it. They unknowingly made a deal with the enemy, and agreed to let them stay. Soon it was revealed that these men were from a nearby village, one of the next on their list. The Israelite leaders had let their own (lack of) wisdom lead them into a trap, and God had let them do it without saying a word because they did not bother to ask Him.

    The examples provided for us in the Bible tell us that the Lord will not always intrude on our lives, but that He will let us live our life just as we want, with, or without Him being involved in it at all.

    Include the Lord in the decisions of your life everyday. Invite Him to be a part of it, and He will. He would have gladly answered Joshua if they had only taken the time to ask. Always inquire of God before making binding decisions.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for Your wisdom, which I know is greater than mine. Please help me remember to stop and pray a moment before I sign something, for You can see what is going on behind the scenes and in people's heart, when I cannot. Lead me down the right path, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Dear Father in Heaven, I never want to make the wrong move without prayer and your guidance!  Keep me on the path of which you have set me on and if I steer away, gently guide me back and forgive my ignorance and sin for not consulting by prayer with you.  Thank you for this day and for the gift of your love, compassion and peace but most of all for your most precious Son Jesus!  Amen!!
