From the moment that we awake each morning until we close our eyes in sleep each night, we need to be in constant prayer and fellowship with God our Father. Whenever we are contemplating our plans for the day, it is wise for us to draw near unto God to seek wisdom to determine if our plans are in accordance with his plans and will for us. His plan for us will ultimately prevail for our good and his glory.
"But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works." Psalm 78: 28.
"And Saul said, Let us go down after the Philistines by night, and spoil them until the morning light, and let us not leave a man of them. And they said , do whatsoever seemeth good unto thee. Then said the priest, let us draw hither unto God." 1 Samuel 14:36. Saul's plan for the day was to go after the Philistines by night, but was it God's plan for him? The priests advised him to draw nigh to God to determine God's plan.
"And Saul asked counsel of God, shall I go down after the Philistines? Wilt thou deliver them into the hand of Israel? But he answered him not that day." 1 Samuel 14: 37
Through the sacrifice of Christ, we who belong to him have access to God the Father, day and night, and he invites us to draw near to him in fellowship and prayer to seek his guidance in all our daily affairs.

"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith ,having our hearts sprinkled from an evil concience, and our bodies washed with pure water." Heb 10: 22.
"Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded." James 4:8.
