A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: Reliable God [17/03/2017]
Thus the children of Israel were brought under at that time, and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the LORD God of their fathers. 2 Chronicles 13:18. Read: 2 Chro 13:1-18
As times and seasons change, men also change, hence, the Bible says in Pro 25:19, “Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint”. At any point in time, only God Almighty can be reliable. To be reliable is to be trusted. Psalms 125:1 “They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever”. To be Victorious in the battles of life is to rely on God Almighty. Only those that rely on God are entitled to triumph over the circumstances of life sweatlessly. You can’t be victorious in life by simply depending on your limited strength or on mere mortal who cannot help him/herself.
Here is a battle array between a divided kingdom of David; Jeroboam king of Israel and Abijah king of Judah. Jeroboam came against Abijah with eight hundred thousand chosen men while Abijah came with four hundred thousand chosen men. Jeroboam was smitten and lost the battle to Abijah king of Judah. One lesson to learn here is that, the battle of life is not determined by multitude or how much you possess but who you rely on. It’s determined by who your ally is. Abijah and his men prevailed because they relied upon the LORD God of their fathers.
* The battle of life is not determined by multitude or how much you possess but who you rely on.
