“Although the Arameans attacked with only a small army, the Lord helped them conquer the much larger army of Judah…”
–2 Chronicles 24:24
Although…with only…the Lord helped.
May I latch onto these words for all I’m worth.
It does not matter what I’m up against, what the odds are, or what I’m going without. If the Lord decides to help me, I will overcome. His help and His provision: they are all I need and the only factors that matter. May I never lose sight of my need for Him. May my heart always be yielded to Him.
Help me to trust you whole-heartedly. Let no disappointment, pain, hardship, frustration or fear ever be enough that I decide to abandon you. Strengthen me to believe you, to follow you, and to obey you.
You alone. You always.
I desperately need your help for these next steps. They are intimidating and big. They hold many unknowns and it is so easy for my heart to fill with worry. But here is my prayer in the face of it:
At the end of the day, may my story say “Although….with only….the Lord helped.”
If that were so, it would be enough.
