Ask God

Joshua 9:14  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 4
And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the Lord.
Here we have a great lesson. Fellowship with the world will dull our communion with the Lord. What Joshua and his men saw convinced them that their visitors were telling the truth. So they accepted them without asking for the Lord’s thoughts on the matter. From that day on, the Jewish people formed an alliance with a tribe of the land. This alliance should never have been made. ALWAYS ASK THE LORD for guidance, young believer. The world can put on a pretty good act if they choose to and may trap you in a wrong relationship.
