In I Samuel 25 & 26 I have been reading about David and how on two different occasions, He obeyed God and did not take Saul’s life when he was presented the opportunity to do so. Often we believe that God has “delivered” an opportunity into our hands but when we step back we often realize that this is just not the case. At Catalyst a few years ago I heard Andy Stanley preach on this passage and he made the case that just because we are presented with an opportunity does not mean that we should take it! Following God requires obedience and wisdom and seeking the counsel of others. Being in relationships with others who can speak truth into your life are key when it comes to obeying God.
What relationships are you engaged in that speak truth into your life?
How do you discern if any opportunity real is from God?
