Trusting God in the Obvious (2 Samuel 2)

When you are faced with a big decision, do you seek God first? What about in the small decisions when the answer seems obvious? That's where I struggle the most to slow down and ask God.

David knew he would become king after Saul’s death. He had already been anointed and told he would be the next king. So after Saul’s death, the next step for David would have been obvious.

But David did not budge until he asked God first if he should move back to Judah, the home territory of his tribe. Then when he received confirmation from God, David moved forward.

2 Samuel 2:1 After this, David asked the Lord, “Should I move back to one of the towns of Judah?” “Yes,” the Lord replied. Then David asked, “Which town should I go to?” “To Hebron,” the Lord answered.

Lord, Please give me the wisdom to slow down and seek You in all things rather than moving ahead with what seems obvious. You alone know the best timing. I need to follow You from behind rather than try to follow you from the front while trying to take the lead. It's easy when the next step seems obvious to move ahead thinking I know what You want me to do. Lord, please help me slow down and ask You first in all things, even when it seems obvious.
