    Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I don't make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time!" When he saw that, he arose,...

This Thing is From Me

  • Thus says the LORD, You shall not go up or fight against your relatives. Return every man to his home, for this thing is from Me. So they listened to the word of the LORD and returned and did not go against Jeroboam. 2 Chronicles 11:4 ESV

    When Solomon the son of David passed away, his son Rehoboam became king of Israel. Then a servant of Solomon named Jeroboam led a rebellion and divided the kingdom of Israel into two parts. When Rehoboam gathered the army to take it back, the Lord told them “This thing is from Me.” This had to appear like the worst possible thing that could have happened, and it was all a part of Gods plan. It was no accident that the rebellion split the nation. It came straight from the Lord.

    I was a foreman once at what was a high paying job at the time. I worked really hard and as I was fasting and praying to get closer to the Lord, suddenly I was called to the office and instead of being promoted, I was laid off. The guy that they kept in my place was illiterate and could not even fill out the reports. I was confused and felt wronged, but after praying about it I knew “This thing is from Me.” I walked through a rough patch, led some people to the Lord and then He put me in my own business. In the end it was better, but God had to remove something first, some of my pride.

    Though it is hard to understand at times why things happen, God loves you, and He is in control of your life. Do not panic when bad things happen. Even satan had to get permission from God to attack Job (Job 1:10). If you are trying to be obedient to the Lord, nothing will come on you that He does not allow, and in the end it will work out for good. Don’t give up when a promotion goes the other way.
