Read 2 Chronicles 18:19.
MEMORISE: Jehoshaphat had riches and honour in abundance: and by marriage, he allied Himself with Ahab
(2 Chronicles 18: 1)
It is said that synergy is better than energy. This means coming with other people’s effort can achieve better things than dissipating energy alone. However, this synergy has to be in proper and positive manner. This is what the Holy Ghost wants to bring into your enlightenment through today’s dose of The Living Water.
Jehoshaphat the King of Judah had a track record of godly exploits when he began to reign. (2. Chr. 27:1ff). However, his undoing was the wrong association, negative alliance and silly synergy he engaged in with the accursed King of Isreal, Ahab (1 Kings 21:19). After his marital alliance, Jehoshaphat unadvisedly agreed to go to war with the Northern Isreal King Ahab to take up Ramoth- Gilead. But for God’s mercy, the silly king would have lost his life in that needless and misguided battle!.
Dear friend, whom do you synergise with? Whose company are you? Who is your adviser? Who counsels you? Who is your mentor? Evil association corrupts good manners (1 Cor. 15:33). No matter how godly or pious or spiritual you are, you can no longer be unspotted, when you mingle with the men in the mire (2 Cor. 6:17).
The sinful know they go nowhere. They don’t have any shame, but you know your garment must not be soiled. Therefore you must keep yourself. You are heading towards heaven. Therefore, it is not only illogical but also foolish to be in company of those who are heading to prediction (2 Cor. 6:14). Before joining any league or force of any form, but guided according to the Word of God. You may not receive the grace to survive like Jehoshaphat. Be careful!.
- I receive to go into wrong alliance, in Jesus’ name
- I receive Your grace Oh God to join only the company of those who follow You and keep Your commandments.
- God who helped the synergy between Daniel and the three Hebrews, please help each believer to move only with God’s people.
