How quickly the people seemed to forget God, and who He was for them, and how He had helped them! But then, how quickly we can forget as well! God is available, and when the people got serious and sought Him, there He was to help them.
Lord, forgive me when I forget how very available You are for me. I want to remember that You are always there, and that I can go to You first. Thank You for reminding me once again how available You are, and that not You, but I, change and move. AMEN
The earth belongs to the Lord, and everything in it. Who is this glorious King? He is the Lord All-Powerful-He is the glorious King. Psalm 24
God is Available
1 The Spirit of God entered Azariah son of Oded. 2 Azariah went to meet Asa and said, “Listen to me, Asa and all you people of Judah and Benjamin. The LORD is with you when you are with him. If you obey him, you will find him, but if you leave him, he will leave you. 3 For a long time Israel was without the true God and without a priest to teach them and without the teachings. 4 But when they were in trouble, they turned to the LORD, the God of Israel. They looked for him and found him. 5 In those days no one could travel safely. There was much trouble in all the nations. 6 One nation would destroy another nation, and one city would destroy another city, because God troubled them with all kinds of distress. 7 But you should be strong. Don’t give up, because you will get a reward for your good work.” (2 Chronicles 15:1-7 NCV)
14 Then Asa and the people made a promise before the LORD, shouting with a loud voice and blowing trumpets and sheep’s horns. 15 All the people of Judah were happy about the promise, because they had promised with all their heart. They looked for God and found him. So the LORD gave them peace in all the country. (2 Chronicles 15:14-15 NCV)
