The king of Syria got message to Ahab, king of Israel, that he would be coming to take all of his silver and gold and wives and children.
Ahab didn’t protest.
Then the king of Syria said that when he came he would also go throughout Ahab’s servants’ houses and take whatever he thought would be beneficial to him.
Ahab then realized that he had a problem.
He called upon the elders of Israel for counsel. They told him to stand against the king of Syria, to fight for himself and his people.
He took their advice.
Sometimes we decide to let seemingly little things slide by thinking it will be harmless or it will suffice the devil. That thinking is flawed. The “little things” are cracks that will eventually crumble a foundation if left alone. And the devil shows no mercy.
Every decision that we make concerning submission to Jesus or submission to the schemes of the devil affect us. Consider none of it lightly.
Never give the devil an opening to gain ground in your life. Always fight for what is right in Jesus.
