“Therefore David inquired again of God, and God said to him, ‘You shall not go up after them; circle around them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when you hear a sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall go out to battle, for God has gone out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines’.” 1 Chronicles 14:14-15, NKJV.
King David inquired of the Lord twice with fighting the Philistines and God gave him detailed instructions regarding each of those decisions before him. David did nothing more and nothing less than what God told him and he won each battle.
When you ask God what should you do regarding a decision or challenge before you, God will not only tell you what to do, but also when and how to do it. When He does, do nothing more and nothing less than what He says. Victory is in the details. Grace and favor are found in the details. If God says take two steps and then turn, don’t take three. If He leads you to enjoy yourself, and go on a short vacation, don’t take a long one. The Holy Spirit will lead and guide us. He is our Helper. It is up to us to follow His lead and do nothing more, nothing less.
Prayer: Father, I thank You for always being present to help me and You know what’s best for me. As I seek You regarding the decisions before me or what I’m facing, show me exactly how to handle it. Help me to trust You, and do nothing more and nothing less than what You say. That is all I need to do to be blessed and victorious. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
