Trust wholly in God. ( Ephesians 3 v 20 -21 )
We read about King Asa in 1 Kings 15, and in 2 Chronicles 14-16 who was king of Judah,
for most of his reign he acted in a godly manner, for most of his reign. He received
encouraging words from God,and sought Him and trusted him ,when faced with an enemy
who had a vast army,he prayed a wonderful prayer.'' Lord,there is no one like you to help
powerless against the mighty.Help us , O Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your
name we come against this vast army.O Lord, you are our God; do not let man prevail
against you.'' What a wonderful prayer, those words ,''we rely on you'',are key words
he could run away,but no, he stands by faith, depending upon his God,and so faith was
rewarded,and God granted him the victory. Later on a prophet goes to him , with words
of encouragement, God would continue to bless him if he continued to seek God.
Trust wholly in your God ,no matter
how great the difficulties are.
