“Some time later King Jehoshaphat of Judah made an alliance with King Ahaziah of Israel, who was very wicked. Together they built a fleet of trading ships at the port of Ezion-geber. Then Eliezer son of Dodavahu from Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat. He said, “Because you have allied yourself with King Ahaziah, the Lord will destroy your work.” So the ships met with disaster and never put out to sea.” (2 Chronicles 20:35-37 NLT)
Hello, Family, King Jehoshaphat had the nation of Israel riding the fence. He followed God, but there were remnants of false gods still in Judah. This prevented the nation from fully turning to God. Jehoshaphat made a poor choice, he made an alliance with a wicked king. God was not happy and caused his (Jehoshaphat’s) plans to fail.
What if Jehoshaphat had eliminated all the shrines to the false gods? How prosperous Judah could have been if Jehoshaphat had turned the nation a hundred percent toward God? Family, we can no longer afford to piecemeal God. That last little shred of your old life must be taken out otherwise it will remain and you will not operate a hundred percent capacity. Gotta get it all!
Much Love & God Bless
