BOAST IN THE LORD 1Kings 20:1-11

Our God is a God who specializes in making impossibilities possible. Because all power in heaven and on earth belongs to Him, He can do and undo, in fact He specializes in using the foolish things of this world to confound the supposed wise.

In our text today, Benhadad king of Syria, taunted Ahab king of Israel that all the silver and gold in Israel, with Ahab’s wives and children are under him. Ahab agreed that they were at his mercy but when he went ahead that Ahab should bring out his family to him, then Ahab sought out the elders, V7-7 “So the king of Israel called all the elders of the land, and said, Notice, please, and see how this man seeks trouble, for he sent to me for my wives, my children, my silver, and my gold; and I did not deny him. And all the elders and all the people said to him, do not listen or consent”. He declined and Benhadad vowed to destroy Samaria.

Ahab responded V12 “And the king of Israel answered and said, tell him, do not let him who girds on boast himself like the one who loosens his armor”. Though Ahab had made some mistakes before this time, but he never doubted what God can do. He knows that it was nothing for the Lord whether to save with little or many people. And God did prove Himself to Israel.

There are times our actions might have brought negative recompenses into our lives and we don’t know what to do when the enemy comes taunting us. Be bold to call upon God to fight and defend you. He loves you and will do anything for you as long as you return back to Him. Do not allow devil to have field day in your life, put him in his proper place by calling upon God. He is all powerful and will deliver you.


Prayer point: Father Lord destroy, every persons and powers making boast over my life in Jesus name.
