Wednesday, May 31st: 2 Chronicles 13-14, John 12: 1-26 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is: 2 Chronicles 13-14; John 12:1-26

2 Chronicles 14:11
Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, “ Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. Lord, you are our God; do not let mere mortals prevail against you.”

King Asa realized he couldn't fight this battle and win by himself, he needed God's help. It was a life and death struggle - if Judah had lost it would have been catastrophic.

Do we realize our time on earth, and what we do with it, also is massively important? We won't get a second try, we need to trust in God and do our best for Him now.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: 2 Chronicles 15-16; John 12:27-50

I had noticed that verse as well. I loved Asa's prayer.

I don't recall noticing this NT verse.....
9 Then a large crowd of the Jews learned he was there. They came not only because of Jesus but also to see Lazarus, the one he had raised from the dead. 10 But the chief priests had decided to kill Lazarus also, 11 because he was the reason many of the Jews were deserting them[c] and believing in Jesus.
