Turn Of Events

I want to take you back to Solomon’s prayer when he dedicated the temple. 2 Chronicles 6:20 says, “That Your eyes may be open toward this temple day and night, toward the place where You said You would put Your name, that You may hear the prayer which Your servant makes toward this place.” This comes up later, but Solomon continued on as he named different situations. He asked that the Lord would hear them pray and intervene.

Solomon’s son, Rehoboam, refused the advice of his father’s counselors. Instead he asked the advice of those he had grown up with. Their advice caused a split of the Israelites. 2 Chronicles 10:15 says, “So the king did not listen to the people, for the turn of events was from God, that the Lord might fulfill His word…”

The turn of events in our nation is of the Lord. He has orchestrated what He has said so that He might fulfill His word regarding America. What are we to do? Cry out to Him and watch His hand at work. Rehoboam died, his son Abijah died, and then Asa his son reigned. 2 Chronicles 14:2 says, “Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God.

An army of a million men and 300 chariots came against Asa whose army was 580,000. Verse 11 says, “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 our God, for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude, O Lord, You are our God do not let man prevail against You!”

The Lord stuck their enemy. Verse 13 says that they were overthrown, “…and they could not recover, for they were broken before the Lord and His army…” As I read this I noted that the enemy was physically fighting against Asa and his army. In truth they were fighting against God and they were broken before HIS army.

We have a mighty God. No one, nor any evil system can prevail against Him. Like Asa, we must continue to cry out to the Only One who has the ability to fight the hidden evil. Light always dispels darkness. When God met Saul on the road to Damascus, He turned the evil intended against His people into good. We flourish today through Paul’s writings. Nothing is impossible for God!
