More like David..

Shew! Business is booming at our office and I am going crazy with firewood orders. I feel like my main duty is avoiding the problems. A zillion times a day I get questioned on how I want someone to handle something. I use my best judgement, don't second guess myself and move on to the next fiasco. I do that so many times a day that it has become second nature to me to spout off an answer and move on. 

I read a devotion on David the other day. His obedience to the Lord was so great. He would win a battle and go back to his knees and ask God what to do next. He relied on God to direct his every move. 

"So David inquired of God again, and God answered him...." 1 Chron. 14:14

I know God has given me the skill and ability I need to do my job. That doesn't mean I don't need to ask for his guidance and wisdom. I want His direction in my workplace. I want our family business to flourish and grow. How better could I benefit the company than praying for God's will and direction? 

I know that God has big plans for me. I know that because He said He did! (Jeremiah 29:11) If I didn't consult Him on a decision, I would be doing myself a huge disservice! What God has for me is so much better than the plans I can devise. Although I know that, I am still guilty of getting ahead of myself and leaving Him out of the equation.  

One of my goals in 2014 is to specifically ask God what He has for me. It seems simple, but I am a control freak! I must remember He's got this.. He knows what He's doing. I want to be more like David. :)
