Joshua 9:14 And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the LORD.
Amazingly people are so quick to make decisions without thinking about what God would have to say about what they are doing.
The Gibeonites come and say that they live a great distance from them. They have thought of every way possible to deceive God’s people and are very effective at doing so.
It will only be a few days until they realize just how deceived they have been but it will be too late. They will have given their word and their word is their bond.
The problem is that they listened, they thought logically, and they were deceived. They did not ask counsel at the mouth of the Lord. They did not find out what God had to say about it.
I am often quit to listen to others, to believe them, to do what they say to do and make a mistake. I know that I have a problem soon because I forgot to consult with the Lord through His Word.
Do you make this mistake? Should you decide today to seek God in your decisions before it is too late?
