1 Samuel 28:5, 6  When Saul saw the vast Philistine army, he became frantic with fear. He asked the Lord what he should do, but the Lord refused to answer him, either by dreams or by sacred lots or by the prophets. (NLT)

1 Samuel 30:8  Then David asked the Lord, “Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them?” And the Lord told him, “Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!” (NLT)

If God speaks and you do not listen, or if God speaks and you do not do what he says, you should not be surprised when he doesn’t speak upon your command. If you seek God with determination to do what he says, whatever it may be, you should not be surprised when he shows you the way you should go.

Here we have a pair of kings. Only one of them had an ace up his sleeve. One tried to cheat the game. The other played by the rules. Can you predict the outcome of this high-stakes match?

You may have heard a preacher or a radio announcer say, “God listens.” He does. He also speaks. He speaks most regularly to those who most regularly seek to hear and obey him. 

How will you pray today?

I will seek God in prayer early and often, with expectation and eagerness.

Our Father, you have given us the gift of prayer. Teach us to pray. Teach us to listen. Teach us to hear and obey. Teach us so that we may know you better, serve you faithfully, and abide in your grace, mercy, and love at all times. Amen.

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”
