Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Wednesday. March 9th. The 4th day of the Hebraic week.
Our verse today is 1 Kings 21:20.
Ahab said to Elijah, “So you have found me, my enemy!” “I have found you,” he answered, “because you have sold yourself to do evil in the eyes of YHWH..”
Ahab said “You have found me, my enemy!” How sad. The prophet of YHWH was the enemy of the King of Israel. Hard to imagine isn’t it? Yet, this was the case. The man who represented the one true God was the enemy of the man who represented the people of the one true God.
Now obviously, no one who claims to be in the faith wants to think of themselves as an enemy of YHWH. However, we see it is still possible. How does this happen? How can we claim to be in the faith yet become an enemy of the very one we claim to be following? It just seems impossible right? Of course it does. But it’s not impossible. In fact, sadly enough, it could be happening with many people at this very moment.
Don’t seek YHWH on your terms. Be careful who you place around you to influence you. You may think the acquaintances in your circle don’t affect your decisions or life style. But they do.
Remember, everything starts small. Weeds don’t just appear. They start as tiny seeds. If not kept in check, weeds can become your norm. If you don’t keep your “small sins” in check, they will slowly over take your life. The next thing you know, you may be calling YHWH’s prophet your enemy.
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
