Bible Key Verse:

“And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him, Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the LORD thy God, therefore is the host of the king of Syria escaped out of thine hand” (2 Chronicles 16:7)


Challenging and dire situations ought to lead people to God who alone has solutions to all of life’s troubles. Instead, many people take foolish actions, which in the end may bring temporary reprieve, but carry great consequences.

Judah had been besieged by Baasha king of Israel. In response, Asa king of Judah gathered all the silver and gold in the house of the Lord and paid Benhadad king of Syria, seeking to reopen an archaic defense pact between their fathers. Benhadad promptly came to his rescue, and attacked parts of Israel, forcing Baasha to abandon the city he had started building in the occupied territory of Judah. Gleefully, Asa seized the abandoned building materials and used same to construct two new cities in Judah. Just when the euphoria of his triumph over Baasha was all over Judah, the prophet Hanani came and rebuked him for acting foolishly in trusting a man, instead of God. Rather than sobering up and returning to the Lord, King Asa arrested the prophet and imprisoned him. He paid dearly for this as he developed a severe disease in his feet. Yet, even in his sickness, he turned to physicians and not to God. When he died of the disease, they buried him with great fanfare which would not affect his eventual destination in eternity.

It is foolish to believe that men, irrespective of their power and influence, can help you out of trouble. To act that way means asking God to hands off your affairs. Putting your trust in another man or thing may make things appear better momentarily, but in the long term, you will leave yourself open to the devil’s attack. This is why it is not just foolish but dangerous to act that way.

Thought for the Day:

“They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.”
