On a beautiful morning, I opened my Bible, followed my Bible reading plan, and red this chapter. A story about King Ahab of Israel enticing King Jehoshaphat of Judah to help him retake Ramoth Gilead from the Arameans. To me, it's another story about the old Kings of Israel & Judah.
So, I went ahead and do my daily devotion. I got a book for my daily devotion as well. What I read exactly is the explanation for the story above. Then it just strikes me deeply.
King Ahab actually planning to get King Jehoshaphat killed, by letting him wear the king's robe. And King Ahab himself, disguised as the soldier of Israel. King Jehoshaphat almost got killed, but God didn't allowed it, He let a strayed arrow hit King Ahab instead.
Human can devise a plan, be it good or bad. But if it isn't the will of God, no plan would ever work out.
