2Ch 14:11, 11 And Asa cried out to the Lord his God, and said, “Lord, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, …(a) NKJV
As the days of rest and preparations progressed, “9 … Zerah the Ethiopian came out against them with an army of a million men and three hundred chariots, … 10 So Asa went out against him, …”Asa’s army was half the size of Zerah’s army (vs 8) and he still went against them. Trusting God for victory does not exempt one from battle field. The only difference is the battle strategies that changes.
Asa who sought God in the days of peace and prosperity cried to His God in the days of trouble as his strategy for battle. Asa’s confidence was in His God and not in his preparation or in the strength of his people. We read of his confession, vs 11 “…Lord, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power…”. King Asa acknowledged God’s ability to accomplish anything with or without them. He approves that faith does not save or grant victory, the object of the faith does and God is. Faith is only as good as whom you put it in.
