Joshua 9

Text: And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the Lord .
Joshua 9:14 KJV

Learn and Apply: There are times when we agree to a deal simply because it makes sense to us, only to realise later that we made a bad deal. Joshua and the princes heard a compelling story which made sense based on the evidence they were presented with. In the end however, they realised they had been fooled by those they were meant to destroy.

It may have been that they thought the matter too small to seek God’s counsel, or that they relied on their wisdom rather than on the counsel of God. No matter is too small for God. It is always safer to seek God’s counsel and approval, as that is a sure way to success in any endeavor (Proverbs 3:5-6).

As we face decisions daily, from the big ones to the seemingly small ones, let us always confide in God, who is the source of all wisdom. Thankfully God has promised to guide us with his eye (Psalm 32:8)

Pray: Thank you Father for the wisdom you freely give to all who ask you. Give me wisdom for every decision I have to make in Jesus name.
