Inquire of the Lord

1 Samuel 30:8 And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.

This bible verse tells us what David did next as He sought to deal with the troubles that besieged him. After grieving and strengthening himself in the Lord, here is what he did,

So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”

There is such importance in inquiring from God or asking God for direction or seeking His guidance, no matter how things may seem. We are made to be aware in John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

This is the point where we base our minds solely on God because Jesus Christ himself has promised us of the Holy Spirit of God, whose part of His functioality in us is to teach us and bring all things to our remembrance.

Nonetheless, its paramount that christians wait on God and should always inquire from Him because of His Holy Spirit which He has promised us to guide us into all truth.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew things to come.

I am telling us now, that things are not always as they appear. It pays to inquire of the Lord when you are going through difficult times, He will lead you.

Its most interesting to know that those that are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.


Father I thank you today for the promise  of the Holy Spirit to lead me into all truth and to guide my paths, bringing all things to my remembrance, thank you for the inquire of Thee and You answer in Jesus Mighty name Amen.

Kindly pray this prayer in your own words, this is just a prayer guide.
