2 Chronicles 14.11-12 – Trusting in God
Posted: 13 July 2010 in 2 Chronicles
And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let no man prevail against thee. So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled.

Sinful creatures that we are, most of us, most of the time, resemble the ancient Israelites in the desert of Sinai. They were always needing one more sign from God, before they felt able to go on trusting in him. Here, however, is an example of somebody trusting in God’s providential care, and reaping the rewards of their faith.

Elsewhere in the Bible are to be found examples of the very different results which follow when people attempt to rely on their own strength. It is not God’s will that we should be able to function independently of him. Were we able to do so, the presumption of thinking that we could get by just fine without our Creator would most surely soon follow.
