The man of God saves the day

A man of God can make a huge difference to an entire kingdom.

1 Ki 12:21-24 21 Now when Rehoboam had come to Jerusalem, he assembled all the house of Judah and the tribe of Benjamin, 180,000 chosen men who were warriors, to fight against the house of Israel to restore the kingdom to Rehoboam the son of Solomon. 22 But the word of God came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying, 23 "Speak to Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all the house of Judah and Benjamin and to the rest of the people, saying, 24 ‘Thus says the LORD, "You must not go up and fight against your relatives the sons of Israel; return every man to his house, for this thing has come from Me.""" So they listened to the word of the LORD, and returned and went their way according to the word of the LORD.

Rehoboam was the son of Solomon. Because of his foolishness he lost 11 of the 12 tribes to Jeroboam. He was about to make another foolish mistake and lose the 12th tribe and his own life as well.

God spoke to Shemaiah, the man of God, and Rehoboam listened to him and did not lose the kingdom and his life.

As a man of God, you can make a great difference in people’s life by speaking to them the words that God gives you to speak to them.
