2 Chronicles 14:11 (14:10 LXX)

And Asa cried out to the Lord his God and said, “Lord, with You it is not impossible, whether with the many or with the few. Strengthen us, Lord our God, for we trust in You. And in Your name we go against this multitude. Lord our God, do not let man prevail against You!”

Personal Challenge

Life is full of challenges and difficulties. If we try to live our lives in a way that glorifies and honors our God, then these challenges and difficulties often expand exponentially. But Asa, the king of Judah reminds us here as to how insignificant these challenges and difficulties are to our God. Here he is with a small army facing the Ethiopian army. He has 300,000 men and the enemy has 1,000,000 men and 300,000 chariots. And what does he do? He proclaims that this is not his battle to fight. but his God's. He knows that with his Lord and God absolutely nothing is impossible. He proclaims that our struggles against the challenges and difficulties of this world are not just earthly battles but spiritual battles as well and that his God, my God, our God is right there beside us and strengthening us. What a great reminder as I head out the door for another day in a world that is full of challenges and difficulties. Glory be to God and may no man prevail against You!
