Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Psalm 1:6 - For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.
Read - 1 Kings 22:50, 2 Chronicles 21:1-17, 2 Kings 8:16-22
Jehoram takes over the reign of Judah after his father Jehoshaphat and his grandfather Asa passed. Although they had both been good and godly kings, Jehoram follows the example of the kings of Israel instead. He is murderous (killing his brothers) and idolatrous (married a daughter of Ahab and Jezebel who brought Baal-worship into his life). He made a choice and chose very wrong. He paid for it with a horrible stomach disease and his nation paid for it by the days of peace ending. There are many examples to follow. Let’s make sure we are following Godly leadership as our example, model and pattern for how we will live and lead.
Lord, with all the examples in the world, let me follow the example of Christ in all I do.
There are two Jehoram’s in this season: https://www.gotquestions.org/King-Jehoram-Joram.html
Destruction is on it’s way. God had delivered peace to Judah during the right of his dad and grandpa but now the Philistines and the Arab’s are attacking and looting the nation! Track this destruction back to the heart of the king that is divided by idolatry. Track this back to the deceiving work of Satan who somehow led Jehoram to follow the example of evil Israel even though his own family and nation was doing better! Misled by the Enemy!
