God Speaks a Fresh Word by Joyce Meyer - posted March 01 Wednesday

Seek, inquire of and for the Lord, and crave Him and His strength.…
—Psalm 105:4
When King Jehoshaphat heard that a huge army was amassing to attack Judah, he knew what to do. He needed to set himself to seek not the advice of the people, but to seek God and hear directly from Him.
No doubt, Jehoshaphat had been involved in other battles before this one, so why couldn't he use the same methods he had employed in previous situations? No matter how many times something has worked in the past, it may not work to solve a current crisis unless God anoints it afresh. He may anoint an old method and choose to work through it, but He may also give us brand-new direction, instructions we have never heard before. We must always look to God, not to methods, formulas, or ways that have worked in the past. Our focus, our source of strength and supply, must be God and God alone.
Jehoshaphat knew that unless he heard from God, he was not going to make it. The Amplified Bible calls his need to hear God's voice "his vital need." It was something he could not do without; it was vital. It was essential to his life and the survival of his people.
You may be in a situation similar to Jehoshaphat's. You, too, may need a fresh word from God. You may feel that, like a drowning man or woman, you are going under for the last time. You may be desperate for a personal word from God in order to survive.
God wants to speak to you even more than you want to hear from Him. Seek Him by giving Him your time and attention, and you won't be disappointed.
God’s Word for You Today: Be open to hear a fresh word from God today.
