Joel Osteen Daily Devotional June 30 2022 : Are You Sure?

    Joel Osteen Daily Devotional June 30 2022 : 

    Today’s Scripture

    2 Samuel 5:19, NKJV
    So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand?”

    Today’s Word

    When the Philistines heard that David had just been made king over all Israel, notice his humility in today’s Scripture. David was a great warrior who had won many battles, yet he didn’t proudly declare, “This is a no brainer. I’ve got this.” He got quiet and said, “God, what should I do?” He was saying, “God, I don’t want to go if You’re not going with me.” He showed his dependence on God. He recognized where his strength, his favor, and his ability came from.

    Sometimes when we face a challenge, we assume God is on our side and there’s no question about whether we go to battle. But a wiser approach is, “God, what do You want me to do with this opposition. Shall I attack, or shall I be still and let You fight for me. If I go in, will You give me the victory?” We’ve all fought battles where we didn’t come out like we thought. Maybe it was because we didn’t inquire of the Lord.

    Prayer for Today

    Father, thank You that You haven’t left me to work out my destiny on my own. Thank You that when I face an obstacle or challenge that I can come to You for wisdom and guidance in my decisions. Help me to stay humble and not assume that You are going with me into a battle. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
