Welcome to 11/09 and the DIVINE ANGER NOT TO INCUR is in 1Kings 11/09-
“And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice”

Solomon was one of the most beloved personality to God in the Bible.
Before he was born, God had told his King David his father about him, his name and his purpose on earth. 1Chron.22:9,10
Despite being born to a mother that David married after an adulterous affair with her, God still gave Solomon two special names- Solomon (Peaceable) and Jedidiah (Beloved of God). 2Sam.12:24,25
Despite being the tenth son of David, Solomon was chosen by God above all the other sons to succeed his father as the king of Israel. 1Chron.28:5,6
Solomon was the only man who won a divine jackpot from God to ask anything from Him in his dream. 1Kings 3
Solomon also had two spectacular personal encounters with the Most High God.
Solomon went on to become the greatest and grandest King of his generation. 1Kings 10

Despite all these excess love lavished on Solomon by God, he allowed his heart to go after strange gods in his old age- “For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.” vs 4
This sinful act made him to incur the wrath of God as the kingdom was rent from him- “Wherefore the Lord said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.” vs 11
This sinful act remained a blackspot in the excess love story between God and Solomon- “Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.” Neh.13:26

No matter the excess love you enjoy from God, you must stay clear of sin so as not to incur His divine wrath on earth and in eternity.
DON’T ALLOW YOUR HEART OR ANYBODY DECEIVE YOU, OUR GOD IS A GOD OF BOTH EXCESS LOVE AND EXCESS JUDGEMENT!

Prayer
O Lord fortify me with perfect heart to continue to enjoy your excess love and never incur your anger on earth and in eternity in Jesus name.
DON’T LET SIN MAKE YOU INCUR DIVINE ANGER!

Good day
GOD’S EVER LOVED SAINT
