Jesus has paved the way to a clear path so you can constantly go for advice or insight and listen to God for guidance. It’s going to be a great day because God has given you the resources needed to step ahead with confidence.
Reading today in 2 Samuel 17, Absalom seeks advice in how to overtake his father. The advice to Absalom from Ahithophel is to kill David and then the whole army would surrender. The advice to Absalom from Hushai is to have an all-out attack on David’s army with Absalom leading the way.
Ahithophel pictures David and his men as being weary and weak. On the other hand, Hushai pictures David and his men as experienced fighters that are as fierce as a wild bear robbed of her cubs (v. 8). Hushai’s counsel is accepted over Ahithophel’s because they believed the Lord had determined to frustrate the good advice of Ahithophel in order to bring disaster on Absalom (v. 14).
Leaders, executives, and families many times rely on others to help make decisions but when all is said and done, nothing provides more advantage than the one on one time with God. Prayer is our greatest power. When you pray and develop a plan each day with God, there is confidence because you know that you will do the right things that will lead to success.
This day with You Lord, give us a plan. You are the light so that we can see the Way. You are the Way, the Truth, and the life. Let us take in this lesson of today, trust in the Holy Spirit for guidance, and always be growing in faith. Your lessons will help us meet adversity, put things in perspective, and prompt us to step ahead to victory. Amen.
Thanks for the morning insight. This is it: “Prayer is our greatest power.”
