God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. When we are in tough situations and we do not know what to do, or we need wisdom to make critical decisions in our lives, we can call on God. When we do not know the right thing to do in a given circumstance or we do not know the mind of God concerning a thing, we can call on Him.
Sometimes we suffer because we have chosen to go our way instead of God’s, we have refused to seek God’s counsel. When we walk in God’s will, in His path, in His word, we cannot stumble or fall in darkness. If we want to walk without stumbling or/and falling we must always cry out to God for guidance. David was a man who always called on God for direction and God always answered, he (David) won every single battle he faced.
Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Psalm 25:4 (AMP)
