It seems that Jehoshaphat could not say no
In this new video we see the great events of Jehoshaphat’s reign and three practical lessons for us. In writing these few lines, it strikes me: it seems that Jehoshaphat could simply not say no to those who solicited him. This leads to associations for which there will be unfortunate consequences and for which God will have to chasten him by his prophets.
At least, in 1 Kings 22:49, we see that he finally understood. When the project of the ships failed, he refused the new proposal of Ahaziah: “But Jehoshaphat would not.”
Don’t we see our own walk in Jehoshaphat as believers? We love the Word of God, we walk in it, we grow in faith and trust in God, but it also happens that we do contrary to the Word when we fail to walk by the Spirit. Then, we learn sad lessons.
This video is released with confidence in the Lord that it will be useful to us all.
