Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Chron.14 & 15)
“God is With Us When We Are With Him”
Text: 2Chron. 15:1-2
“Now the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded.
And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The LORD is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.
“God is With Us When We Are With Him,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Contrary to his grandfather Rehoboam, Asa Prepared His Heart To Seek The Lord; “doing what was good and right in the sight of the Lord”(2Chron.14:2).
After 10 years of rest and a test of Asa’s Faith in a dramatic victory over the Ethiopians, God reminds Asa that his rest and victory over the Ethiopians was because God was with him when he was with God. God also warns Asa that if he forsakes God and returns to idolatry that God will forsake him as well.
We take a lesson from this today. When we engage life in harmony with God, we can be Absolutely Confident that God Is With Us! We fight the fight of Faith on the Battlefields of life victoriously because God Is With Us and We are with Him in Obedience! In other words, our Life and Times are determined by our heart’s position with God.
When our heart is seeking God in all our ways, meeting regularly each day for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, chewing on His Word, and living what we’re learning from Him; we have rest in His Word, and ultimate victory over all our spiritual enemies. The fight may be long and hard (to build our faith), but the end of the fight will be Victory!
If we forsake God, by choosing “what is right in our own eyes,” by relying on our own limited knowledge and ability; God will forsake us for a season to correct us and bring us to confession and repentance.
Listen up Warrior! The Righteous Warrior’s Heart is seeking God in all our ways.
What God Wants Is What I Want! What God Doesn’t Want I Don’t Want!
Our Commander Jesus Christ Leads The Way and You and I Follow and Imitate Him! Ooooh Rah! God is with Us because We are with Him! Oooh Rah!
