Asa cried to the Lord his God, "O Lord, there is none besides You to help, and it makes no difference to You whether the one You help is mighty or powerless..."
The odds against Asa's men were enormous. Zerah the Cushite marched out against them with a vast army and three hundred chariots [2 Chronicles 14:9]. It seemed impossible for Asa to overcome the vast multitude. There were no allies who would come to his defense. His only hope was in God. Asa, realizing his lack of strength, saw God as standing between the might of Zerah and himself. The result of his trust in God was profound. The Bible shows that the Cushites "were crushed before the Lord and His forces..."
Your Loving Father, God, works in His own strength, not in the strength of instruments. It is His glory to help the weakest and to perfect strength out of the mouth of babes and sucklings. You may be facing a situation that seems so overpowering that man cannot help you. In lesser trials, you may have the luxury of running to men, but now you need to cast yourself on your Almighty Father. It is His exclusive responsiblity to help you overcome any situation. Do not go to Him with your solutions but go to Him in total dependence, believing in His power.
Rest in the Lord. Believe that God is between you and that situation, and it will flee before Him, as clouds in the wind.
Prayer: My Loving Father, thank You for today. Thank You for always being there to help me. I confess that there are times I have tried to do things on my own. Today I choose to trust in You. I rely on Your exclusive ability and responsibility to help me. Amen.
