"O LORD, there is none like you to help, between the mighty and the weak” (v11). Even after the tragic split between northern Israel and southern Judah, God was true to His promises. As long as His people rejected false gods and turned to Him for help, He answered. Faced with the mighty Ethiopian army, King Asa cried out, “Help us, O LORD our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this multitude” (v11). God’s people take refuge “in His name.”
“You are our God” (v11). If God is “our God,” we will follow His ways, trust His voice, lean on His strength, and call out to Him first in every trial.
