“First seek the counsel of the Lord”

Boy Reading the holy bibleWhen we wonder why areas of life seem limited and we just seem unable to break through to victory, let’s go back to Step One: “First seek the counsel of the Lord” (1 Kings 22:5, 2 Chronicles 18:4).

Why wonder about any area of life?

  • When three armies joined against Jehoshaphat, “Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord…(2 Chronicles 20:3).
  • When Moses was asked a particular question, he answered, “Wait until I find out what the Lord commands concerning you“ (Numbers 9:8).
  • Now if anyone of you is lacking wisdom, let him be requesting it from God, Who is giving to all generously and is not reproaching, and it shall be given to him(James 1:5).
  • Part of Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount” includes this important lesson: “Yet seek first the kingdom and its righteousness…(Matthew 6:33).

Seek first…First seek…Inquire of the Lord…Find out what the Lord commands…be requesting it from God.

When we need direction and the path is unclear, we need only apply this simple principle from the scriptures. It’s just that simple.

Blessings and joy in the journey.
