The Arm Of Flesh vs The Arm Of God
Read: 2 Chronicles 32:1-8
Hezekiah, King of Judah, was facing war with
Sennacherib, King of Assyria. He did what he
could do in the flesh for protection from the
possible attack. Then he gathered the people
together and encouraged them by telling them
to be strong and not be afraid of the King of
Assyria - because they had 'Another' with them
greater than those with him (v.7). He then
makes an interesting point in v.8: "With him
is an arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our
God to help us and to fight our battles." With
the Lord on our side, we can have the victory.
No matter what we are facing, we will have the
victory and overcome.
We all need to hear words
of encouragement to keep us pressing on in God.
We all need to hear that God is still in control
even if the situation we are in seems out of
control and hopeless. We all need to know that
what we are doing is making a difference, and
that we are appreciated.
Maybe there is someone
you can encourage today. It can make all the
difference in whether they will keep pressing
on, or just give up. Don't let them 'Give Up'!

Therefore encourage (admonish, exhort) one
another and edify (strengthen and build up)
one another, just as you are doing. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (AMP))
Bring someone encouraging news
That will renew hope to their souls
Tell them you really appreciate them
And that God is still in control.
