“At this, all Adonijah’s guests rose in alarm and dispersed.”
I Kings 1:49
Adonijah took it upon himself to declare himself king succeeding his father, David, yet, the Lord’s plans were for David, not Adonijah, to succeed as king. The people were somehow swayed into believing Adonijah when he declared himself king and they came to his celebration. Why do you think they just took Adonijah’s word? When the people figured out that they were supporting the wrong person, they rose in alarm and dispersed.
Do you pray for the authority in your life that they would consult God and act according to God’s plan and not their own agenda? Have you prayed that God would put on your heart which leaders to support that God has already planned for a leadership position? Let’s pray today for our country’s future leadership and our Church’s future leadership.
