Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Joshua 9:14

The Israelites sampled their provisions but did not inquire of the Lord. – Joshua 9:14 (NIV)

Life can get really busy. And there can be times when we simply forget to get God’s help on things. Maybe you didn’t even think to ask God about that weird question you had about science. But here’s the truth, God wants to help you in every area of your life.

He will help you understand science better, if you ask Him. He made the world, so it only makes sense to ask Him questions about how things work. He knows it better than your science teacher or science textbook. So don’t just go to God for spiritual questions, go to him for questions about the earth, planets and how they’re made too. There are so many benefits for asking for God’s advice.

In today’s verse, we see what happens when we forget to ask God about things. The nation of Israel didn’t ask God about a treaty. As a result, they made a treaty with the Gibeonites, which wasn’t a good thing. God wanted to deliver them, and instead because of deception on the part of the Gibeonites, the children of Israel made a treaty not to harm them.

Forgetting to include God in your life isn’t wise. God knows about all things, from who to make a deal with to how science works. So encourage yourself to ask Him. If you don’t understand of get something, ask. God wants to help and speak to you.
