What do you do when your enemies surround you on every side and defeat looks imminent? Cry? Give up? Quit?
I’m Dr. Matthew Lee Smith and I want to share some Hope For Today to remind us that only the Lord can help us!
Attacked by an army of over a million men, the king of Judah, “cried out to the Lord his God, “Lord, only you can help the weak against the powerful. Help us, Lord our God, because we rely on you and we have marched against this multitude in your name. You are the Lord our God. Don’t let a mere human stand against you!” (2 Chronicles 14:11, Common English Bible)
In many ways, these are dark days for Christians. If we believe the Bible and take the God of the Bible at His word, then much of our culture is in juxtaposition with us. Name a subject; God is probably on the other side of our “do whatever you want to feel good” culture.
Legal assaults against businesses, colleges, and Biblical imagery across our land are hardly news anymore. It seems like millions have chosen to eradicate the name of Jesus and his followers voices as well.
To our present reality, the king of Judah reminds us to act in faith and pray with passion, “Lord, only you can help the weak against the powerful. Help us, Lord our God, because we rely on you and we have marched against this multitude in your name. You are the Lord our God. Don’t let a mere human stand against you!”
