Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Chronicles 14 & 15)
“God is with You When You’re With Him”
Text: 2 Chronicles 15:2
“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.”
This Truth that “God is With You When You’re With Him,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
In the beginning of his reign as King over Judah, Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord as his father David did (1Kings 15:11).
When faced with the million man army of Zerah the Ethiopian, Asa stood with God and God stood with Asa and broke Zerah’s army. Hear King Asa’s Battle Cry:
“And Asa cried out to the LORD his God, and said, “LORD, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, O LORD our God, for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude. O LORD, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You!”
So the LORD struck the Ethiopians before Asa and Judah, and the Ethiopians fled.”
(2 Chronicles 14:11,12).
The prophet Azariah’s words from the Spirit of God affirmed that God was with Asa as long as Asa was with God!
Yet these words carried a warning also; that “if you forsake Him, He Will forsake you.”
Here’s our lesson from this; the Faithful Warrior Must Always Abide With Their Commander.
Asa and the people of Judah made a covenant with God to Seek Him With All Their Heart and Soul! That’s Abiding With God!
“Then they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;
and whoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.
Then they took an oath before the LORD with a loud voice, with shouting and trumpets and rams’ horns.
And all Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart and sought Him with all their soul; and He was found by them, and the LORD gave them rest all around.”(2Chron.15:12-15).
Listen up Warrior! God is With You When You’re With Him; and You’re With Him When You Continue To Seek Him With ALL Your Heart and ALL Your Soul! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
