Showers of Blessing!

“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers” 2 Corinthians 6:14. 

Apart from King David’s instruction in 1 Kings 2:3- 4 to Solomon the Lord appeared twice to King Solomon and He said, “I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you.  And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days.  So if you walk in My ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days”  1 Kings 3:12 – 14.

We read in 1 Kings 3:3 that “Solomon loved the LORD” and in return “God gave Solomon wisdom and exceedingly great understanding and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore” 1 Kings 4:29.  He spoke three thousand proverbs, and his songs were one thousand and five 1 Kings 4:32.

King Solomon drifted away from the Lord because of his love of foreign women of whom the Lord had said to the children of Israel, “You shall not intermarry with them nor they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods” 1Kings 11:2. 

The Word says, “Solomon clung to these women in love” (1Kings 11:2) and his wives turned away his heart (1Kings 11:3) from the Lord. 

We read how King Solomon went after other goddess and did evil in the sight of the Lord.  This made the Lord angry with Solomon who had appeared to him twice (1Kings 11:9).

Jesus Christ has great plans for you.  Do not hinder His plans by entering into relationships which the Lord does not approve.  Be careful with whom you associate with.  Stand firm in the Lord so that nothing can persuade you and take you away from the Lord. 

2 Corinthians 6:16 says, “And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?  For you are the temple of the living God.

Be Blessed!
