DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
A Public Trust In God
2 Chro. 15:7-15
The invasion of Zerah’s overwhelming army presents us with one of the most inspiring stories of the Bible. Asa’s army was out-numbered by more than double. Prior to the battle, Asa prayed for God’s help (2 Chro. 14:11). Following the victory, the prophet Azariah, son of Oded, exhorted Asa to continue his obedience to God (2 Chro. 15:7-8). Returning to Jerusalem, Asa gathered the citizens and renewed the covenant with God and decreed death to all who practised idolatry. Asa’s faithfulness brought rewards (2 Chro. 15:9-15). Have you ever made a public declaration of your faith among your friends, relatives and neighbours? Do other people know what you stand for? You need to learn this act.
Point of Emphasis: For by strength no man shall prevail, therefore, put your trust in God.
Prayer Point: O Lord, give me the grace to trust You in all situations of life.
