The Bible describes King Ahaziah of Israel as wicked. Yet, King Jehoshaphat of Judah a God-fearing man chose to enter into an alliance with him. Together they invested into an endeavor that would have made Israel richer. They built a fleet of trading ships. However, the alliance was not approved or ordained by God! Therefore, God turned what had the potential to be a great blessing into a disaster. The ships, with so much promise, never left the harbor. The Lord destroyed King Jehoshaphat’s work because of the wicked person he chose to ally with in order to achieve his work.
Do a personal audit. Are the persons you are allying with approved by God? Your unordained alliances can block or revoke your blessings. Choose your alliances wisely!
