The men of Israel looked them over and accepted the evidence. But they didn’t ask God about it. – Joshua 9:14 (Message)
Its easy to get wrapped up in all the things going on around us. If you’re like most people, you’ve got tons of things in your life screaming for your attention. In all the busyness it’s pretty easy to leave God out of our lives. Most of the time, we don’t intentionally leave God out, it just happens in the midst of our business. We simply forget to include God in our decision making.
That’s a lot like what today’s Bible verse is talking about. In this verse, the leaders of Israel made a really bad decision because they didn’t ask God about it. God was willing to give them information to help them make a good decision. However, they never even asked God. As a result, a really bad decision was made.
Decide to learn from the mistake the leaders of Israel made. Determine to get God’s advice when making decisions and follow His leading. When you get God involved in your decision making, everything else will fall into place!
