Don’t Compromise your Position

So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah went up to Ramoth Gilead. The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “I will enter the battle in disguise, but you wear your royal robes.” So the king of Israel disguised himself and went into battle.

Now the king of Aram had ordered his chariot commanders, “Do not fight with anyone, small or great, except the king of Israel.” 2Chronicles 18

The above situation reminds me of a line from a movie I saw some time ago, I’ve forgotten the tittle and I barely remember the plot; one character said something like; keep your distance from me, there are people shooting at you, they might miss you and hit me instead.

Majority of us will probably never gallop into a battlefield, ready to bring down the adversary and if need be die the soldier’s death, sword in hand face to the enemy. As a matter of fact unless you’re like my two friends Amelia and Swaley who between them have 5 horses, most of us will probably never even mount a horse but we all fight nevertheless.

Sometimes in an attempt to help a friend, you may have been a guarantor for a loan or a surety of some sort. Helping a friend is a noble thing but you must never compromise your own strong position in the process.

Ancient wisdom says “…if you have put up security for your neighbour, if you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger, you have been trapped by what you said,   ensnared by the words of your mouth. So do this, my son, to free yourself,   since you have fallen into your neighbour’s hands: Go—to the point of exhaustion— and give your neighbour no rest! Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler”. Proverbs 6:1-5

I see you receive the wisdom not only to get yourself out of every compromising situation but also to live your life away from such circumstances in Jesus’ name.

What a great way to share your view point, and a reminder for spending time in the present moment and drive happiness from the little things that life brings.

The catty looks really sweet and cute. I also have a persian cat in white colour. She enjoys playing with ball and enjoys going outside with me.
