Looking For Ungodly Help Can Make You Compromise

1 Kgs. 15:16-24

Forming an unholy alliance can be a stepping stone to one’s downfall. From today’s passage, King Asa was terrified because of war declared by Baasha King of Israel and he was moved to contact King Ben-Hadad of Syria for help which he paid dearly for. Asa took all the silver and gold that was left in the treasuries of the house of the Lord and those of the king’s house. Asa used this treasure to buy the favour of Ben-Hadad of Syria, so that he would withdraw support from Israel. Apparently, Baasha of Israel could not stand against Judah by himself – he needed the backing of Syria. In what way(s) are you compromising your faith in God just for a morsel of bread? Having unholy connections, compromising your standards and becoming shaky in the face of circumstances. Why don’t you repent today and tell God to help you and forgive you.

Point of Emphasis:   My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Prayer Point:            Help me O Lord, to always wait on You for victory over all my life battles.
