BIBLE THOUGHT: “THE LORD IS WITH YOU WHEN YOU ARE WITH HIM. IF YOU SEEK HIM, HE WILL BE FOUND BY YOU” (2 CHRONICLES 15:2, NASB)
READ 2 CHRONICLES 14:9-15 for a better understanding of the lesson.
HAVE YOU ever felt the weight of the world on your shoulders? Have you felt alone in the fight for the right or that you are weak and the forces of evil around you are so strong? Have you feared that the big bully down the street is always going to get the best of you?
To most eyes, Asa and his army were greatly outnumbered on the battlefield that day. However, with God on their side they greatly outnumbered the enemy.
No matter how weak we seem to be, no matter how strong the evil forces around us seem to be, there is no one like God to help the powerless against the mighty.
When we rely on God and draw our strength from Him, then we will overcome the difficulties of our lives.
When we are on God’s side, we are always in the majority, no matter how many are against us.
Give me a task too big,
Too hard for human hands.
Then I shall come at length
To lean on Thee;
An leaning, find my strength.
-Wilbur Humphrey Fowler
Sing “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God“
Prayer: Lord, there is no one like You to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, for we rely on You. O Lord, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
