Bridge Over Troubled Water

Help us, O Lord our God, for we rest on You, 
and in Your name we go against this multitude. 
- 2 Chronicles 14:11 - 

Asa was faced with the options of panic or pray. He was attacked by an Ethiopian army of a million men.

Asa faced this huge fighting force.

Instead of relying on military strategy or cowering in dread, Asa turned to the Lord God in urgent prayer.

He prayed a powerful and humble prayer.

He confessed his total dependence on Him, he asked for help, and appealed to Him to protect His own name (2 Chronicles 14:11).

The Lord responded to Asa’s prayer.

Asa won the victory over the Ethiopian army.


When we are faced with problem of different types, let us not panic.

Instead, let us turn to God who fights for His people and gives them victory.
