‘Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the Lord your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. ‘ Deuteronomy 16:18
‘If cases come before your courts that are too difficult for you to judge—whether bloodshed, lawsuits or assaults—take them to the place the Lord your God will choose. Go to the Levitical priests and to the judge who is in office at that time. Inquire of them and they will give you the verdict. ‘ Deuteronomy 17:8-9 
God has given us wisdom in His word, by which to live and make decisions. The principles of His word are to guide our daily life, rather than us seeking a new revelation and sign from heaven for every decision we face. But He has not left us unprepared or without aid in facing the hardest questions and greatest quandaries. His Holy Spirit is available to us as a resource when our wisdom and understanding runs short, to guide when we don’t have the answers.
God’s will is revealed in my life as I faithfully apply God’s word and God’s wisdom in the small, daily, insignificant decisions and situations that I face. He has given me all that I need, to navigate life in a way that is pleasing to Him. The Hebrews of the Old Testament had to go through the priests in order to hear from God on questions too great for them to handle, but today I have God’s Holy Spirit living inside me as a daily guide for the situations that I face. His presence is constant, and His voice is sure no matter the situations that arise.
This week, I need to walk with confidence in the wisdom that I find in God’s word…and with the peace that comes from knowing that the Holy Spirit will guide me whenever the path gets murky.
God, thank you for the assurance that there is no situation I could face, which is too complicated for your wisdom to handle, or too complex for your voice to guide me through. Help me to live daily with your wisdom, and turn to you above all else when I am unsure of the next step.
