How many times can we find ourselves in the same place as Asa? We can feel like we are desperate for help of some kind, and so go to someone or something other than God. The scripture tells us that Asa was, “faithful all of his life”, and yet at a time of crisis, he went to someone other than God for help. What a lesson for us to learn! God truly is searching for those who have complete trust in the Lord.
2 The LORD looked down from heaven on all people to see if anyone understood, if anyone was looking to God for help. (Psalm 14:2 NCV)
2 God looked down from heaven on all people to see if anyone was wise, if anyone was looking to God for help. (Psalm 53:2 NCV)
Father, I do so want to be one of those You can find always looking to You for help and guidance! Forgive me when I look for help from other things; from other places or people. You are my God, and I love You. AMEN
I will praise Your greatness, Lord. Everything that You do is right. You are loyal to all You have made. You are close as I pray. Psalm 145
The Lord Searches
7 At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him, “You depended on the king of Aram to help you and not on the LORD your God. So the king of Aram’s army escaped from you. 8 The Cushites and Libyans had a large and powerful army and many chariots and horsemen. But you depended on the LORD to help you, so he handed them over to you. 9 The LORD searches all the earth for people who have given themselves completely to him. He wants to make them strong. Asa, you did a foolish thing, so from now on you will have wars.” (2 Chronicles 16:7-9 NCV)
