When you don’t know what to do…


“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

succeeded. 

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 

your hand.” 

2 Samuel 5:19

 

Bless you friends

We are happy when we go to Him for help!


“I asked the Lord for help, and He answered me. 

He saved me from all that I feared. Those who go to Him

for help are happy. They are never disgraced.”

Psalm 34:4, 5

 

I needed to hear that today and thought you did too!

We need His help today and we will need His help tomorrow.

We simply have to ask for it and He will answer.

Life can be tough and unbearable at times but the Lord doesn’t want us going through it alone.

We should never get to a place where we deal with problems without Him. He cares about every

part of our lives and wants to help. He doesn’t like seeing us suffer.

He wants to bring to an end the things that are tripping us up. He wants to stop the trials

from having victory over us. He wants us to win. He wants us to be victorious.

 

Let me say this, the trouble you are facing today will pass because the Lord is helping you.

No matter how dim things appear they will get better. Trust in the Lord. He has got you.

He is on your side. The enemy will not win.

Ask the Lord for His help always.

Bless you, friends.

God is waiting for an invitation into your battles.


“Be glad that you are His. 
Let those who ask the Lord for help be happy. 
Depend on the Lord and His strength. 
Always go to Him for help.” 
Psalm 105:3, 4
This verse encouraged me greatly this week. It was a reminder I needed desperately. The Lord is waiting,
hoping I invite Him into my battles. And that’s the problem at times. I go ahead on my own,
in my own strength and lose. But God wants to fight for me. He wants to help me.
The word says, “Let those who ask the Lord for help be happy.”
They are happy because when they ask, the Lord comes in and helps them.
Breakthrough happens, healing, restoration and a whole lot more happens when He helps.
Don’t rely on your own strength. The Lord’s strength and power are available to you. You just need to ask.
The enemy doesn’t want God getting involved in the fight because he knows he will lose.
Invite the Lord to your battles. He wants to take over and fight for you. He wants you to be victorious,
He wants you to be in peace.
“Always go to Him for help”
God always cares about what you going through. If you hurting ask Him for help, if you stressed, speak
up. The point is this, Invite Him into your battles. Not some of them but all your battles. 
He wants to fight for you. 
Bless you, friends!

Who doesn’t need counsel…??!!!


We are all on a journey, a journey God has mapped out for us. But for that plan to take shape in our lives there is something we need. For us to be successful and accomplish what God has called us to do it’s important we realize the importance of advisors, counselors, and mentors in our lives. I will not say it is a must have but it is very important.
King David as mighty as he was had counselors.

Jonathan, David’s uncle, a wise and literate counselor, and Jehiel son of Hacmoni were responsible for rearing the king’s sons. 
Ahithophel was the king’s counselor, Hushai the Arkite was the king’s friend. Ahithophel was later replaced by Jehoiada son of Benaiah and by Abiathar. 
Joab was commander of the king’s army.  1 Chronicles 27:33-34

King David surrounded himself and his family with wise people. Even though he was king and even though He had a relationship with God he still had people who he could go to for counsel. This is a lesson for us too. We need to surround ourselves with wise people. We don’t need to be afraid to ask for counsel from people we deem as wise! We were not created to be an island. God created community for a reason.
Surrounding yourself with wise people is a very intentional thing. You have to go out and ask people. You have to humble yourself and go to someone who has been through more and ask for help.

I haven’t got to where I am by myself. There were times I just had no idea what I supposed to do but God brought people in my life who brought clarity to me. Your destiny is about other people and INVOLVES other people. You were not created to be a one man army! Reading the scripture I shared with you was a good reminder for me. If King David needed counselors and he was a man after God’s heart how much more do I need counselors?

Do you have someone who you can go to for advise and counsel from time to time. I don’t think it’s supposed to be all day everyday. God is the first point of call. King David always turned to God first and it seemed as he walked the road God marked out for him, God brought wise men into his life. Like I said in the beginning, having counselors is important. Counselors and advisors come in many forms these days. There is nothing that states your counselor or advisor must be someone who lives in the same area as you or must be someone who you can talk to face to face or must be the same colour or age or gender! Ask God to show you why certain people are in your life! Don’t limit yourself. One of my mentors is dead. I learn from him through the material he has left behind. Another counselor of mine lives on another continent who I have never met face to face! God wants you to accomplish your destiny. To make sure you accomplish it God sends you people to help. We just need to be humble enough to admit we need help and ask for help. God will not leave you alone.
