July 7 – 1 Samuel 23:1-5

David sought God not once, but twice regarding battle with the Philistines to help Keisha.  As hard as I try, I often fail to go to the Lord before moving forward with a life plan, trip, purchase, etc.  Yet, in the midst of his men advising him against battle, where did he go?  He went to God.  Because his heart was in tune with God and his obedience, the people of Keisha were saved.  Will we turn to Christ first for wisdom and be obedient to his will? 

23 Now they told David, “Behold, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah and are robbing the threshing floors.” Therefore David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I go and attack these Philistines?” And the Lord said to David, “Go and attack the Philistines and save Keilah.” But David's men said to him, “Behold, we are afraid here in Judah; how much more then if we go to Keilah against the armies of the Philistines?” Then David inquired of the Lord again. And the Lord answered him, “Arise, go down to Keilah, for I will give the Philistines into your hand.” And David and his men went to Keilah and fought with the Philistines and brought away their livestock and struck them with a great blow. So David saved the inhabitants of Keilah.
