2 Chronicles 13-14, Luke 12:1-34
11And Asa cried to the Lord his God, “O Lord, there is none like you to help, between the mighty and the weak. Help us, O Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this multitude. O Lord, you are our God; let not man prevail against you.” -ellie
Who is Jeroboam?
He was the son of Solomon
Thankyou so much! Don’t know how I missed that haha
After reading the comments, I went back and re-read Asa’s prayer; it combined with the Luke reading was a powerful reminder that prayer is the most important weapon against anxiety
I’m struck by the war that Abijah and Judah engages against the rest of Israel. You think back on the sorrow that Israel had as it went to battle against the tribe of Benjamin. Truly just as Jesus said he came to divide, brother from brother here are separated by love for God and love for idols. May we be just as fiercely loyal to the Lord and His commandments.
25And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
A good reminder that I am not in control. He is sovereign and I need to trust in Him.
