DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
God’s Marvelous Help
2 Chro. 26:14-15
Our God is marvelous. He equally helps His people in marvelous ways. He is a present help in time of need, (Ps. 46:1). Uzziah was a minor when he became king. His age and experience would not help him to perform credibly in his new role. He therefore sought God for help and God helped him marvelously and equally prospered Him. God did not abandon Uzziah mid way. He gave him extra-ordinary help and support as long as he acknowledged God. Uzziah enjoyed the help of God until he became strong. He achieved great things that are beyond his age, experience and skills. His fame spread over the world even to the boarders of Egypt. That is the Lord we serve. He can help anyone who seeks Him for help. God is ever committed to the course of His children. He can do what no man has done and what no man can do. Do you need wisdom for excellence? Please, seek God. Are you presently confused? Please, seek God as He would show you the way out.
Point of Emphasis: God is a present help in time of need, seek Him.
Prayer Point: Lord, help my career, business, family, ministry, etc. and do not withdraw Your helping hands from me.
