BE VICTORIOUS - Bro. T. Stephen

Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of 2 Chronicles 14:11, “And Asa Cried out to the Lord his God and said, “Lord it is nothing for you, to help   whether with many or with those who have no power, help us O Lord for we rest on you, and in your name we go against this multitude. You are our God; do not let man prevail against You.”

From the above context we see the character of Asa.  He did that which was good and right in the sight of God. He found that God’s eyes were always upon him. And that helped him to do what was right and pleasing to God. He removed the altars of all the foreign gods, and the high places, and broke down the scared pillars and cut down the wooden images. He commanded the tribe of Judah to seek the Lord, God of their fathers. He removed the incense altars of foreign gods, from all the cities of Judah. Therefore   the kingdom was quite under him.  And he built fortified cities, in Judah, for the land, had rest. There was no war, because the Lord had given him rest. Asa was more like his ancestor David, in character.  He further built high cities, and made walls, around them and towers, gates and bars, as God had given rest on every side. “This proves Asa’s bold and strong hand in exercising power over the Land of Judah.  

When the land was at rest, Zerah the Ethiopian   came out against them with an army of a million men and 300 chariots. So Asa and his army went against him.  He was scared to face the large battle troops so he cried out to God,   saying, “Lord it is nothing for you to help whether with many or with those who have no power. Help us O Lord, our God, for we rest on you, and in Your name we go against this multitude. O Lord do not let man prevail against you. So the Lord on hearing the cry of king Asa responded to him immediately. The Lord was pleased with Asa, because he did all that was pleasing in the sight of the Lord. So as soon as he called upon the name of the Lord for Help the Lord descended upon him in a mighty manner and struck the Ethiopians before Asa, and Judah, and therefore the Ethiopians fled, from the battle field. God encourages all those of you reading this message that God will come down to help you when you call upon His name in truth. He will fight the battle for you. He will never put you to shame before your enemies. Moreover God through the character of king Asa encourages you to be bold and do all that is good in the sight of God.

When you walk in the ways of God, then He will surround you with His mercy and Grace. He will cover you with a hedge of protection. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. He will hear your cry and reach out His righteous right hand to help you. He will never forget you nor forsake you. He will help you come out of your worst situation that you may be facing in your life. Because of huge debts you are unable to face the people around you.   Or maybe you have been suddenly thrown out of your job for no reason of yours. It is a simple thing for the Lord to do, whether with many or with those who do not have power. Therefore submit yourselves in the mighty hand of God as Asa did, and you shall be victorious in your life. God bless you.

Prayer:  Our loving heavenly Father, we   thank   You   for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for encouraging us to do, that which pleases You. Help us to work according to your plan and purpose in our life. Just as Asa put away the altars of foreign gods, may we boldly put away all unwanted things from our heart, like pride, selfishness, anger, and learn to be more submissive before men and God. Not return evil for evil. But do good to all. Make us victorious in our life.

In Jesus Name We Pray.

Amen.
