It seems to me that God did not intend that we solve every problem we have with spiritual power. It will, therefore, be erroneous to think that prayer is the solution to every single problem.
When Samuel was instructed by God to anoint David king, he was afraid that Saul who was King at that time would kill him, Samuel, if he knew. Although God is all powerful he decided to use wisdom to solve the problem.
‘And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the Lord said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the Lord.’
1 Samuel 16:2
God asked Samuel to tell Saul he was in the city to offer sacrifice and not disclose the real reason for his visit. There are many problems in life that can be solved by wisdom.
Let’s pray to God to show us when to use wisdom and when to use power.
