“After this, David inquired of the Lord saying, Shall I go up into any of the cities of Judah?
And the Lord said to him, Go up. David said, To which shall I go up?
And He said, To Hebron.”
2 Samuel 2:1
When David was faced with a difficult situation he sought the Lord. He sought the Lord for
answers whenever he could. He rarely did his own thing and seeking the Lord was why he
He never boasted to be the most intelligent or strongest. His confidence was in the Lord and it showed
in how he dealt with problems.
When he didn’t know the next step to take, the direction he was supposed to go or when a problem was
bigger than him he ran to God for help and answers.
I was encouraged by that. What happens when we are in over our head or when we are out of ideas?
What do we do when we are confronted by troubles that threaten to stop us dead in our tracks?
Do we look to people or to God?
Going to God should be the first thing we do. He will help us no matter what we face.
Going to God made a difference in David’s life.
Going to God gave him victories wherever he went.
Going to God gave him the answers he needed.
When you go to the Lord for help, He will step in and help you. Situations will change,
and problems will be solved when God gets involved.
The word is simple today.
When you don’t know what to do, ask the Lord for help.
When you need help against a powerful enemy ask the Lord for help.
Don’t try to do it on your own. The Lord is with you.
“David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver
them into my hand? And the Lord said to David, Go up, for I will surely deliver [them] into
