“So the men took some of their provisions, but DID NOT ASK COUNSEL from the Lord.” Joshua 9:14 ESV

Spiritual independence is an assertion of maturity and capability which is unacceptable to God. Our text reveals it’s foolishness and uselessness.

Beloved, Joshua and Israel depended and acted on their wisdom, asserted independence and ignored God in the matter of the Gibeonites which boomeranged on them. Since evidence can be deceptive and human judgment limited, spiritual independence is always unacceptable to God as it always end in regrets. Until you learn not to see any matter as insignificant, you won’t learn to first consult God in everything. Until you learn to first consult God in everything you’ll always depend on your wisdom, and your life cannot be free of throes and woes!

Grace upon grace!
