If you are like me, there are times when I have to make decisions and I go ahead and make all the plans before talking to God about it. Dangerous, dangerous move.
No matter how simple the situation seems to be, it is very important that we get the direction and stamp of approval from our Daddy. In 1 Samuel 23:1-5 David was faced with a situation that without thinking about it, he could have gone ahead and wage war, but he did what was the right thing, he enquired of the Lord. The Lord answered, but the men David appointed to go to war, were afraid. David did not pressure them, because he clearly understood the strength of the enemy. He again enquired of the Lord.
The outcome, David and his men were victorious. He enquired, God answered and assured David of his presence.
