He did not seek guidance from the LORD. Therefore the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse. – 1 Chronicles 10:14
We tend to go to God when nothing else is working.  That is an epic leadership fail. God has every right to expect to be the first voice we seek. 
Do you have a way you listen to God?  Do you make room for his voice?  Do you wait eagerly for him to speak?
