It had come to David’s attention that the Philistines were warring against Keilah. David went to The Lord asking if he should lead his people into battle against the Philistines.
The Lord said yes. He told him, “Go, and smite the Philistines, and save Keilah.”
David rallied the troops. He told them the plan of action.
They were hesitant. They were doubtful that The Lord would ask this of them.
So David enquired of The Lord yet again. And again he received the same instruction.
So David and his men fought the Philistines. They saved Keilah.
Isn’t it a comfort to know that God is leading us?
The whole world may be going in a different direction but knowing that God is with you gives you the courage to keep traveling down the road He has put you on.
Sometimes though you just want the reassurance that He is guiding you and that you’re not getting off the path He has laid out for you.
Ask Him to reassure you in those times and then boldly get on with it.
