When it comes to making decisions, we may seek the counsel of many people around us. There are usually trusted advisors to whom we go before we make key decisions. It may be family members, friends, or mentors. But, there is one person who should never be left out of any deliberations: God. 

Ahab proposed that he and the king of Judah go to war against Aram. Jehoshaphat was sensitive to know what God’s opinion was before they went forward. Interestingly enough, after Jehoshaphat heard God’s Word, he still went forward with the war knowing that it would not end well for Ahab. In fact, Ahab was disguised and hiding among the troops and he still met his death as the prophet had said. 

We, who are called to live Spirit-led lives, should never get ahead of God. Always seek His counsel on matters big and small. God never wants us to wonder what our next step will be. Have a listening ear to heaven to hear God’s voice and then obey. Your greatest counselor is the Holy Spirit. Let Him guide you!
