1 kings 14:1-13
ARE YOU REAL OR IMPERSONATING❓
1 Kings 14:6
Impersonation is one act that is gradually eating the moral fabrics of our society. A lot of people these days pretend to be what they are not. Some people pretend to be rich when they are not. Many pretend to be Honest and Humble when they are not. Worsening it still, others pretend to be born again when in truth they are only being religious.
What we do not usually realise is that it is futile to impersonate another person in the presence of the Holy Spirit. This was what King Jeroboam and his wife perhaps did not know. So they were caught up in the trick.
When was the last time you attempted disguising yourself claiming to be what you are not and pretending to be someone else? If you will be sincere enough, you will admit that every act of impersonation is a loss of self-confidence and identity. And when the person is caught, the consequences are pathetic.
Who knows if the King and his wife had been sincere whether God would have shown them greater mercies? Of course, God is always merciful to those who are sincerely penitent. We should also pray to be as discerning as prophet Abijah: though physically he was almost blind, yet his spiritual antennas were very sharp and connected. And thus he was not deceived by the impersonator.
Living a fake life will always prove disappointing at the end of the day. Always
Note that the worst deceit is self deceit
Lord, please help me to over coming all the trappings of pretense.
