What honors God?

It is a Tozer kind of day.

If God gives you a watch, are you honoring Him more by asking Him what time it is or by simply consulting the watch? – A.W. Tozer

We struggle incessantly trying to find out God’s will for us. People attempt to accomplish this in many different ways. Some pray to God for wisdom (James 1:5) and diligently search the scriptures for guidance. Some pray to God for the answer and then have to assume that God has blessed whatever endeavor they are contemplating because God “made them feel at peace.” This “Godly” answer may contradict the scriptures but they assume that is OK since they “know in their heart” the truth. Which method is most pleasing to God? God has given us his written word and an intellect to search it. He expects us to work out our salvation (Phil. 2:12). Are we honoring Him by honoring His Word or are we honoring him by ignoring his Word?
