Recently the company which provides internet service to our home had a power outage, consequently the service for our television and internet went down. I called the company and they informed me they would have someone come out and look at it sometime within the next “twenty-four” hours; rendering my computer and television useless! In our lives there are times when we feel the power has “gone out,” the service is down and we cannot function. Asa, the king of Judah, made a declaration of faith which reminds us, our God is able to deliver us and perform mightily through His servants, even when the power seems to be out!

(2 Chronicles 14:11-12)

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, O Lord our God, for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You!” So the Lord struck the Ethiopians before Asa and Judah, and the Ethiopians fled.

If you feel “powerless” today, rest in the fact, God has “all power!” The excellence of His “power” has nothing to do with us, and everything to do with Him! (2 Corinthians 4:7) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. Even though the power may seem to be out, we are never powerless. As with Asa, God’s power supply is “immediate,” *we don’t have to wait for it to show up, “sometime” within the next twenty-four hours. **(Jeremiah 33:3) ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’***Thus, our “service” unto the Lord can continue, according to His power, as we seek to “rest” in Him.

For His glory,

Pastor Al
