2 Samuel 17:14
And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel. For the Lord had ordained to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, so that the Lord might bring harm upon Absalom.
Absalom had 2 advisors – Hushai amd Ahithophel.
Ahithophel spoke first and gave the better advice but somehow Absalom after listening to Hushai’s advice, those to go with Hushai -thinking it to be better.
Scripture is careful to record why Absalom made the wrong choice.
God had planned for Absalom to fail so that David might be saved.
Our enemies may have awesome advisors and formidable armies.
But if God is on our side, who can be against us?
Seek God today. HE IS ALL THAT YOU NEED.
