“Therefore David inquired of the Lord, and He said, ‘you shall not go up, circle around behind them, and come upon them in front of  the mulberry trees.’”  2 Samuel V:23.

David was wise to keep in constant contact with His God. He knew that the goals and strategies of his enemies were as fickle as the human heart. The methods he'd used to combat the Philistines in the past might prove ineffective in the future. As a mighty military leader, David did not have to rely on reconnaissance for information, he could access the perfect knowledge of His all-seeing God. In this case, the Lord gave him specific instructions to carry out an ambush instead of a frontal assault. David's God is our God, too. Trust Him to know the best course of action for you, today and always. 

Yesterday we prayed and gained the victory in a certain way, today we need to pray again, for God’s method for yesterday may not be His method for today.

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us, and if we know that He hears us, we know we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. – I John 5:14-15
