Bible Verse of the Week: 2 Samuel 5:23

"So David inquired of the LORD, and He answered, "Do not go straight up, but circle around behind them and attack them in front of the balsam trees."-2 Samuel 5:23
This verse was right after a previous battle with the Philistines which David had won by the help of God. He did not feel arrogant or triumphant to fight the second battle without inquiring of the Lord. He did not venture upon his own strength. Instead, he waited until God told him with clear instruction what to do. We need to learn not to make a step without God's sign. We can avoid so many bumps in our lives if we seek the Lord before making any moves. We must pay attention to God leading us; if He is silent, wait until He speaks. Those who move without God would later rather have waited for His instruction. Let us act as David did and not make any big move without first inquiring of the Lord. ~Jesselyn
