This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 32:8 (ESV)
Today I am encouraging you that God will give you GPS-like directions.
Recently I talked about things feeling a bit out of sorts. Some things seem on track one week and off track the next. It is during these times that our circumstances can feel so overwhelming that we can forget to seek God for direction.
Similar to how we use GPS to give us step-by-step directions, it is important to seek God in the same way—especially when we’re feeling impatient or overwhelmed. This is exactly what David did when he fought the Philistines.
It is important to note that the Philistines had a military advantage over the Israelites because they had a monopoly on iron. This meant that they could easily arm themselves with swords and spears, whereas the Israelites could not. The first lesson is that even when you’re at a disadvantage, you can prevail if you seek God’s direction. David knew this principle very well.
When the Philistines conducted their first raid on Israel’s territory, David sought God’s guidance. In turn, God gave David specific instructions on how to attack them from the opposite direction. At each step, David knew that in order to prevail, he needed God’s guidance.
In contrast, when King Saul had to face the Philistines, he did the exact opposite. He became overwhelmed, sought his own will for matters, and was defeated on the spot.
