Beware the Warning Signs

Now Solomon made a treaty with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and married Pharaoh's daughter; then he brought her to the City of David until he had finished building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall all around Jerusalem. 1 Kings 3:1

Solomon was praised as an obedient and wise king who loved the Lord. However, by allying himself with Pharaoh and marrying his daughter, Solomon violated God's commands and sowed the seeds of his future downfall into sin.

Are there warning signs that you've been ignoring today that could spell trouble in the future? Perhaps your faith is wavering in a key are of your life or you simply can't trust God to provide for your needs.

If a man with Solomon's wisdom couldn't spot serious warning signs, it's likely that, at times, you too may need a spiritual reminder from God and need to wake up and take immediate action. Perhaps Solomon's sin also came about because he relied too heavily on his own wisdom.

A life of faith will have many ups and downs, and the best defense against falling into sin isn't your own wisdom. Every believer, no matter how wise, needs the support of friends and guides, much like the Old Testament prophets, who can speak--what are to you--revelations and show the path away from sin.

Prayer: Lord, help me to remain vigilant against sin in my life today.
