2Ch 14:11 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 not man prevail against thee.
GOD of His entire responsibility. "There is none beside thee to help."
The odds against Asa were enormous. There was a million of men in arms
against him, besides three hundred chariots. It seemed impossible to
hold his own against that vast multitude.
There were no allies who would
come to his help; his only hope, therefore, was in GOD.
It may be that
your difficulties have been allowed to come to so alarming a pitch that
you may be compelled to renounce all creature aid, to which in lesser
trials you have had recourse, and cast yourself back on your Almighty
Put GOD between yourself and the foe.
Asa's faith, Jehovah seemed to stand between the might of Zerah and
himself, as one who had no strength. Nor was he mistaken.
We are told
that the Ethiopians were destroyed before the LORD and before His host,
as though celestial combatants flung themselves against the foe in
Israel's behalf, and put the large host to rout, so that Israel had only
to follow up and gather the spoil.
Our GOD is Jehovah of hosts, who can
summon unexpected reinforcements at any moment to aid His people.
Believe that He is there between you and your difficulty, and what
baffles you will flee before Him, as clouds before the gale.
~F. B. Meyer~
When nothing whereon to lean remains, When strongholds crumble to dust; When nothing is sure but that GOD still reigns, That is just the time to trust.
Tis better to walk by faith than sight, In this path of yours and mine; And the pitch-black night, when there's no outer light Is the time for faith to shine.
Abraham believed GOD, and said to sight, "Stand back!" and to the laws of nature, "Hold your peace!" and to a misgiving heart, "Silence, thou lying tempter!" He believed GOD.
