God Will Defend His Children At All Times
(Passage: 1 Kings 20)
A Syrian king and his army underestimated God and believed they could loathe his protective power. After local gods (idols) have failed to earn the Syrians their desired victory they concluded that God of Israelites must have been powerful on the hillsides where the battle took place. Therefore, Syrians decided to change strategy to attack Israelites in the plain land. Meanwhile, they also lost the battle to Israelites.
The scripture reported, “Then the servants of the king of Syria said to him, ‘their gods are gods of the hills. Therefore they were stronger than we; but if we fight against them in the plain, surely we will be stronger than they.’” “Then a man of God came and spoke to the king of Israel, and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Because the Syrians have said, “The Lord is God of the hills, but He is not God of the valleys,” therefore I will deliver all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord.’” (1 King 20:23; 1 Kings 20:28).
Lesson on God’s Power
God is not limited in power; anyone who underestimates his power will live to regret it. The same God who will negatively deal with wicked people will favor people that faithfully serve him. Jehovah is the living God! He is an omniscient Creator. He is an invisible, invincible, and indefatigable God that reigns over the universe. He conceived and created all things by his power to his satisfaction Therefore, all people must serve him with due honor. Every living ought to faithfully serve him.
Prayer on the Affirmation of God’s Strength
Dear God, I honor you because you are the King of kings and Lord of lords. Your power is great and convincing. I pledge my allegiance to you. I will not serve an idol, but my loyalty will remain with you. Please help me to remain consistent with you every day of my life so that I can enjoy your benefits. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.Tags: bible kjv apk, bible kjv free download, bible kjv offline apk, bible kjv online, Bible Map Syrian Antioch, Bible Syria And Israel, Bible Verse About Syria, bible verse of encouragement today, bible verse today is the day of salvation, God on mountain, invincible, invisible, israelites, omniscient God, punishment of idol worship, Syria During Bible Times, Syriac Bible, Syrian Army Bible, Syrian Conflict In The Bible, syrian god, Syrian War Bible, verse of encouragement today, verse of the day today, verse of the today, verse of today in the bible, verse of today kjv
