In 1 Kings 20, God defeated Israel’s enemies, the Arameans. After the victory, they attacked a second time but when the opposing King tried to make peace, the King of Israel accepted bringing condemnation on himself.
If God delivered you from something, don’t let it have a place in your life again. Flirting with temptation can put you in a worse state than before.
John 5:14 NIV
Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.”
