Only God to help you?

In the second book of Chronicles chapter 14 and verse 11, we read these words, “Lord, there is none beside You to help.” Do you find yourself in an almost impossible situation with seemingly nobody available or even willing to help you? How would you feel if the only person you could turn to was God?

The odds against king Asa in this chapter were enormous. There was a million men or arms against him, in addition to three hundred chariots. It seemed utterly impossible to hold his own against that vast multitude. There were no allies who would come to help; his only hope, therefore, was God. It may be that your difficulties have been allowed to come to such an alarming state that you may be compelled to renounce all human aid, to which in lesser trials you have had recourse, and cast yourself back onto your Almighty Friend.

Put Got between yourself and the foe. To Asa’s faith, Jehovah seemed to stand between the might of Zerah and himself, as one who had no strength. Nor was he mistaken. We are told that the Ethiopians were destroyed before the Lord and against the foe in Israel’s behalf, and put the large host to rout, so that Israel had only to follow up and gather the spoil. Our God is Jehovah of hosts, who can summon unexpected reinforcements at any moment to aid His people. Believe that He is there between you and your difficulty, and what baffles you will flee before Him, as clouds before the gale.
