The Mighty and the powerless (February 1, 2013)

2 Chronicles 14:11 Then Asa cried out to the Lord his God, “O Lord, no one but You can help the powerless against the mighty!  Help us, O Lord our God, for we trust in You alone.  It is in Your Name that we have come against this vast horde.  O Lord, You are our God; do not let mere men prevail against You!”

King Asa was one of the few good things in Judah.  He followed the Lord and did what was right.  He knew God was the only one who could save them.  Today, there are many powerless people struggling against the mighty of this world.  There are people willing to stand up and fight for them; however, they can’t fight these battles without God’s help.

Unborn babies, abused children, people with special needs, people being sold or kidnapped into slavery, the confused, the poor, the mentally ill, the physically impaired–all need God to fight for them.  In a world that focuses on perfection, only the perfect person–Jesus Christ–can rescue them and us.

King Asa, later in life, was attacked by the King of Israel and instead of turning to God as he had in the past, he asked the King of Aram for assistance.  How soon man forgets where his help comes from.  Let us always remember–our help comes from the Lord.

Father God,
You are powerful enough to help the weak overcome the strong.  It is in Your Name that we come against those who oppress the poor, abort the unborn, sell slaves, abuse children and the impaired.  This world is evil, but Christ has overcome the world.  May we always turn to You in our time of desperation and greatest need rather than to the people and things of this world.  Amen.
