Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

peace

Peace – you can’t put a price tag on it. Even if you could, you can’t buy it. Yet, it can be yours. God offers peace – peace that goes beyond our understanding, our reasoning. (Phil 4:4-7)
 
Let’s look at 2 Chronicles 14. Here we find Asa. Verse 2
“And Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God.” “… And the kingdom had rest under him.” (verse 5)
 
I believe there is a connection between doing what is good and right in God’s eyes and having rest/peace.
 
As we read on in the story of Asa we find that he had a mighty army of 580,000 men of valor. When along comes Zerah the Ethiopian. He has an army of a million. The battle line is drawn.
 
Verse 11 “And Asa cried to the Lord his God, “O Lord, there is none like you to help, between the mighty and the weak. Help us, O Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this multitude. O Lord, you are our God; let not man prevail against you.”
 
Not only was the Ethiopian army defeated – not one of them remained alive.
 
Who do you rely on?
