Set Your Heart On Seeking The Lord

1 Kgs. 12:26-27

“And Jeroboam said in his heart, “Now shall the kingdom return to the house of David: If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of these people turn again unto their Lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah”.  We can see that Jeroboam’s focus was to prevent losing his people and position to Rehoboam’s kingdom as a result of their going to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. What should have been his focus? He should have focused on God’s promise to him that if he obeyed God’s laws his kingdom would endure. It is true, Jeroboam had a serious concern here, but he never set his heart on seeking the Lord in this serious matter. He did not seek God’s wisdom about his concern. What concern do you have today? It is time to seek the Lord.

Point of Emphasis:   Jeroboam had a serious concern here, but he never set his heart on seeking the Lord.

Prayer Point:            O Lord, I seek Your wisdom for every concern of my life. (Name them one by one.)
