King Solomon fell in love with many foreign women (besides Pharaoh’s daughter), including Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites. They came from nations about which the Lord had warned the Israelites, “You must not establish friendly relations with them! If you do, they will surely shift your allegiance to their gods.” But Solomon was irresistibly attracted to them.  So the Lord said to Solomon, “Because you insist on doing these things and have not kept the covenantal rules I gave you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant. 1 Kings 11:1‭-‬2‭, ‬11 NET

It’s no big deal to God to grant answer to your prayers for breakthrough and material blessings in every form of your desire. The big issue of utmost concern to God is your level of spiritual maturity to handle such blessings when they come.

King Solomon possibly could have remained devoted and faithful to God all through his life time and preserved the legacy of United Kingdom which God used his father David to build.

But for the riches and fame that God gave him, his heart was turned away from God to many foreign women and foreign gods (1 Kings 11:1-13). This was what led to the tearing apart and the forfeiture of the ten of the twelve tribes of Israel after him. I pray for you this day that material blessings that are also of temporal use will not render you unfit to receive your glorious and eternal inheritance in Christ.  Good morning.

Your brother,
