BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU PUT ON


The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Wear my kingly robe; I’m going into battle disguised.” So the king of Israel entered the battle in disguise. (2 Chronicles 18:29 MSG)

Put some thought to what you put on, you may find yourself implicated in something you did not expect. Always be a step ahead in everything. A prophesy had gone out for the doom of king Ahab in the battle that was coming. King Jehoshaphat heard it and yet when King Ahab asked him to put on his kingly robe, he did it without thinking. Ahab himself was going to disguise himself.

Don’t be too trusting of people no matter how close they may seem. Many are ready to sacrifice you for their own lives. Don’t take proceeds of crime, nor receive a small token from a bribe. Those doing it might intend to make you the sacrificial lamb. Don’t volunteer your name to be put in by people who you have not tried and tested. You might find yourself in trouble for things that you didn’t do!

The devil always tries to pause as an angel of light. He will try to bring you into trouble through many means and ways. Ahab was clearly aware of his fate and wanted to pass it on to Jehoshaphat and save his own life. Wake up child of God, it is better to lose friends than becoming the prisoner in their place.

When the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat, they said, “There he is! The king of Israel!” and took after him. Jehoshaphat yelled out, and the chariot commanders realized they had the wrong man—it wasn’t the king of Israel after all. God intervened and they let him go. (2 Chronicles 18:31-32 MSG)

If it wasn’t for God’s intervention, Jehoshaphat would have died just for a robe. Better walk with nothing than wear things that are aligned with evil and death. Don’t covenant with criminals and non believers, they have no principles and will soon sacrifice you. Don’t overstretch grace because of stupidity, use your mind and the wisdom that God has given you through Christ.

I pray for you today that spiritual intelligence will be in you to discern and overcome all the tactics of the enemy.

Declare this,
I take hold of the wisdom of Christ. From now on I will not be naive and I will apply my mind in all the decisions that I make.
