January 26: Asa’s prayer for Victory

1And Asa cried unto the Lord his God, and said, Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O Lord our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O Lord, thou art our God; let no man prevail against thee.

2 Chronicles 14:11

The last hymn sung by Jim Elliott and his fellow missionaries, was “We Rest on Thee.” God may give you earthly victory like He did to Asa, or He may allow what seemed like the senseless slaughter of Jim Elliott.

If we believe Romans 8:28 – that all things work together for good – whatever trial comes before you, call out to God for help, rest in Him, and go in His name!
