"Because they relied on The Lord God ."(2 Chronicles 13:18)
It was there in reading of the account of wars Asa, king of Judah, would be involved in that His verse caught my heart, "Because they relied on The Lord God ." This is exactly what He wants us to do. To rely on Him. During all of the living of this life.
His family numbers are more than we are able to count. We have been given so many tools to band together and lift others up to Him. In all steps of living, so many are praying for each other. Talking to our ABBA. And knowing - He listens. To each and every word.
"In the same way The Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but The Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groaning's too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of The Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God."(Romans 8:26-27)
What hope there is knowing we are not alone. Without His Family. Ever. What blessings rain down upon us from each other. What security there is in knowing, without doubt, our ABBA is in total control.
In all ways. For always.
"For The Eyes of The Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him." (2 Chronicles 16:9)
