TAKE HOLD OF DIVINE INSTRUCTIONS.


*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*

*TAKE HOLD OF DIVINE INSTRUCTIONS.*

*Scripture Treasure.*

1 Kings 22: 29-30 *So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead.*

*And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and enter into the battle; but put thou on thy robes. And the king of Israel disguised himself, and went into the battle.*

*Insight and Highlight.*

To ignore knowledge and vital information is as worse as ignorance itself.

*Scripture Commentaries.*

Jehoshaphat feared God and showed this by telling King Ahab that God's prophet must be sought before going to war with Syria.

Jehosaphat's almost fatal error was not ignorance because he had heard what God said about the war.

Jehoshaphat problem was that he did not make use of the knowledge that was made available to him.

Let us look at Jehoshaphat' flaws.

First, one may want to ask how a king like Jehoshaphat, who was one of God's most fearing kings of Judah, could associate with a wicked king, Ahab of Israel.

Second, how could he subject himself to agree with Ahab that he (Ahab) would disguise himself into the battle asking Jehoshaphat to put on his (Ahab's) robe?

Third, how could Jehoshaphat be so careless to agree with Ahab with this arrangement knowing God's prophet Micaiah had prophesied Ahab will not come back from the war?

Jehoshaphat had all the divine information. What could he have been thinking?

He could have died, but for God's intervention, 1 Kings 22: 32-33.

Set boundaries in friendship. He seemed to have trusted Ahab more than he ought to have.

Divine information must surpass what we know or who we trust as friends.

People change, and friendship can cease.

Divine instruction will not come until it is certain and necessary.

God will not waste His words.

There is verified information in our world of today.

If you are not sure of any information, they are verifiable. There are sources available for you to confirm what you have heard so that you may believe or not.

In our world, we can be sure there is no information without a verifiable source, at least.

There is too much information to help you avoid ignorance.

Take hold of information. The greatest of all is divine information.

*Remorse corner.*

To ignore knowledge and vital information is as worse as ignorance itself.

*Call to Word action.*

Prov 4: 5-6 *Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.*

*Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.*

*The Christian clarion duty.*

Take hold of divine instruction.*

Prov 4: 13 *Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.*

*Prayer.*

Lord, help me to take hold of divine instruction, in Jesus name.

Good morning, all, and be blessed as you come into His presence.

God bless you.
