Against all odds and the prevailing trends of the day, King Asa of Judah did everything right. His steadfast devotion to God brought 35 years of peace to the kingdom. And yet, later in life when confronted with a threat, rather than turn to God for help he made an unwise alliance, despite a lifetime of evidence of God’s faithfulness. When things fell apart as a result of his choices, the prophet pointed out how it could have been if he’d maintained his dependence on God. King Asa’s example encourages us to trust in God’s guidance and protection and provision and faithfulness over the long term.
