How many of us make decisions without consulting God first?
How many of us make decisions without consulting God first? We only go to Him for the important or big stuff. We talk to Him after we've exhausted all other options, or what we tried didn't pan out in our favor.
What if we went to God from jump? What if we asked Him for what we wanted instead of trying to make it happen on our own. Are we afraid of His response? Do we think we're more powerful than He is? Maybe we don't need Him. We seem to be getting along just fine doing it our way.
God said if we delight in Him, He will give us the desires of our heart. Now that doesn't mean everything we ask for we will receive. James 4:3 says "When you ask you don't receive because your motives are wrong". Are the reasons behind your ask selfish or to bless others?
My point is, go to God with a pure and sincere heart. Include Him in everything. It doesn’t matter how big or small it may seem.Talk to Him about your plans and vision and ask Him for direction. Ask that His will be done and watch Him order your steps. Don't let it be, you have not because you do not ask.
