First Things First

1 Kings 22:5 NLT Then Jehoshaphat added, "But first let's find out what the Lord says."

When you're troubled and need an answer from the Lord, it is perfectly okay to go to someone and have them intercede on your behalf.  However, it is even more important that you go to the Lord, praying and seeking His face.

The Lord is your savior and you must have a relationship with him.  Even if someone comes to you with "what the Lord has told them about you," you still need to go to the Lord on your own.  Do not allow intercession or prophets to take the place of you seeking the Lord for yourself.

Remember that the Lord always confirms His word and His sheep know His voice.  I encourage you to spend time studying God's word to learn His voice and His ways.  Always consider what the Lord says about every situation that you're in. I can assure you that He will never get tired of hearing from you because He desires to have a relationship with you.

Wishing you confidence in your walk with God! Enjoy the day that the Lord has made!

*I encourage you to read the entire chapter when you have time. This should encourage you even more to always seek the Lord.*
