Seeking to know what God would have you do in a situation can sometimes be a difficult thing. Has God given specific instructions, as he did in the story of Joshua and the Gibeons (Joshua 9:1-27)? The Israelites got into ‘trouble’ because they “did not inquire of the LORD”. They were deceived by the Gibeons. We do not know what would have happened if they had stopped to seek God’s wisdom in the situation.
Sometimes our inability to know what God wants is simply our inability to seek him at all! Seek Him with all your heart! You will find Him! God promises that much (Jeremiah 29:13). But we MUST seek!
