Re:Verse passage – Judges 1:1-2, 8-13, 20 (day four)
Israel made a lot of mistakes when it came to their relationship with God. They did get one thing right though…before they proceeded after the death of Joshua…they inquired of the Lord. Knowing God’s direction and moving in His power and provision is critical to being a conqueror. Israel did not always follow God’s direction (i.e.- “completely drive out the inhabitants so they don’t turn you away from Me”).
What we do with God’s Word when we gain understanding of it is essential to victory. Obedience must follow His commands. Seeking God first, before anything else, is key to success…obedience to His direction is key to blessing and victory. Many times we fail to stop and seek God before we launch off on some task or adventure. Remember to approach God first in prayer to gain His Perspective and Will…then move forward in obedience to His direction. Be a conqueror!
