PART TWO OF THE LIFE OF ASA

WOW, THIS IS AS GOOD AS A JOHN WAYNE MOVIE

ASA HAS 580,000 MEN, AND THE ENEMY ONE MILLION; 2 Chronicles 14:8-15

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

8 Now Asa had an army of 300,000 from Judah, bearing large shields and spears, and 280,000 from Benjamin, bearing shields and wielding bows; all of them were valiant warriors.

9 Now Zerah the Ethiopian came out against them with an army of a million men and 300 chariots, and he came to Mareshah. 10 So Asa went out [a]to meet him, and they drew up in battle formation in the valley of Zephathah at Mareshah

CAN YOU IMAGINE FACING AN ARMY TWICE YOUR SIZE WITH CHARIOTS AS WELL. THE NATURAL TEMPTATION WOULD BE TO BE FILLED WITH DOUBT AND FEAR, BUT NOT ASA, HE HAS BEEN SERVING GOD AND IN A FAITHFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AS HIS SERVANT.

JUST LIKE IT SAYS ON OUR MONEY IN GOD WE TRUST SO SAYS ASA;  VERSE 11

Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, “Lord, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O Lord our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; let not man prevail against You

WHAT AN IMPORTANT LESSON FOR US ALL, OUR ENEMIES WHETHER THEY BE HUMAN OR SPIRITUAL, THEY ARE NOT COMING UP AGAINST US, THEY ARE COMING UP AGAINST OUR GOD.

I MET A YOUNG MAN ONCE WHO TOLD ME HE WAS DEMON POSSESED AND THE SON OF A PASTOR. I ASKED HIM WHY WOULD HE ALLOW HIMSELF TO FILLED WITH A DEMON, HIS RESPONSE; “MY PARENTS HAVE CHOSEN GOD OVER ME, I WILL DESTROY THEIR MINISTRY.” I READ THESE VERSES TO HIM AND TOLD HIM GOD WOULD ALSO CHOOSE HIS PARENTS OVER HIM IN THIS SPIRITUAL BATTLE. WAS HE PREPARED TO BATTLE GOD?

THE QUESTION REALLY CHALLENGED HIM AND HE ASKED TO BE COMMITTED TO A MENTAL HOSPITLE, WHICH I GLADYLY OBLIGED, KNOWING THAT THE HEAD DOCTOR AND MOST OF THE NURESES WERE CHRISTIANS AND DEAL WITH BOTH THE MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL PROBLEMS HE WAS HAVING.

NEXT TIME SOMEONE COMES AGAINST YOU FOR YOUR WALK WITH GOD, OR YOUR TESTIMONY, OR VALUES REMIND THEM THEY ARE TAKING ON GOD ALMIGHTY NOT YOU!

So the Lord [b]routed the Ethiopians before Asa and before Judah, and the Ethiopians fled. 13 Asa and the people who were with him pursued them as far as Gerar; and so many Ethiopians fell that [c]they could not recover, for they were shattered before the Lord and before His army

SUBTLE WORD HIDDEN IN THAT VERSE, BECAUSE OF ASA’S COMMITMENT TO GOD AND HIS PURPOSE ASA’S ARMY “BECAME GOD’S ARMY”

WHEN WE DEVOTE OURSELVES TO GOD WE BECOME HIS VICTORY, AND HIS VICTORY IS ASSURED.

WELL STAY TUNED FOR PART THREE.
