You can tell a person’s spiritual condition as you observe where he gets his wisdom and strength from.
David, together with his mighty men just lost their wives and children to the Amalekites. His men even thought of stoning him to death as a result. He cried so many tears that the Bible said that he no longer had any strength left to weep.
But he found strength in the Lord His God. (1 Samuel 30:6)
He later inquired of the Lord if they were to pursue the Amalekites.
God told him to go for it.
Right about the same time King Saul was seeking wisdom. But Saul looked for it through the witch of Endor. This was the beginning of a downward spiral spiritually.
Here is where you can observe one’s spiritual condition.
Saul sought wisdom through worldly means.
David sought it from God who knows all for He is the Alpha and Omega, knowing the end from the beginning.
When push comes to shove, who do you run to for wisdom and strength?
The Scriptures are readily available for us. His Word is our primary source for insight about life and living.
Let’s approach Him who not only knows everything but desires the best for us at will ultimately bring Him glory.
