Only You – Kim Walker-Smith

(Lyrics below)

Who do you run to when trouble comes? The phone book? Your nearest agnostic psychiatrist/physician? Joe Blow, who hasn’t a clue who God is?

In 2 Chronicles 16, the Word of God tells us a story about Asa, the King of Judah, who had the audacity to take the silver and gold from God’s Holy Temple and send it to Ben-Hadad, King of Syria (an evil dude), to petition his help to fight against his own brethren in Israel. Asa was warring again with Baasha, King of Israel, and he felt desperate for help to win this battle. So, Ben-Hadad, who dwelt in Damascus, heeded Asa’s call and came against Israel. Israel backed off, and I imagine Asa felt real good about himself…until the prophet showed up.

Hanani the seer (a prophet who sees in the spirit realm) went to Asa and said, “Because you have relied on the King of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore, the army of the King of Syria has escaped from your hand. Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand; for the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect toward Him. In this, you have done foolishly; therefore, from now on you shall have wars” 2 Chronicles 16:7-9. Then Asa was angry with the seer and put him in prison, for he was in a rage because of this thing, and Asa oppressed some of the people at that time. Three years later, Asa became diseased in his feet and his sickness was severe; yet in his disease, he did not seek the Lord, but the physicians.

Then Asa died two years later (2 Chronicles 16).

If Asa had repented, for God is gracious and merciful, God would have forgiven him and healed him, if he had only asked Him.

Some people would just rather have everything their own way, and die and end up in hell, as to repent and be saved and healed.

Who are you trusting in? God is waiting for your answer today.

“His (God’s) eyes run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect toward Him” 2 Chronicles 16:9

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior, unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate, having no conscience (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

“The Spirit and the bride say, Come; and let him who hears say, Come; and let him that is athirst come, and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” Revelation 22:17

Only You

 

When I lose hope

You stay here by my side

Though I may fear

You hold my trembling heart

Your love is kind

Hope like the rising sun

Through lows and highs

I say Your will be done in me

In me, in me…

 

When fear is like a wildfire

I choose only You

I choose only You

Above my doubt and over every lie

I choose only You

I choose only You

 

Though I may wander

Your arms are open wide

In You I’m home

The moment I open my eyes

Your love is kind

Hope like the rising sun

Through lows and highs

I say Your will be done

 

You chose the cross, so I choose surrender

You deserve my lifelong praise

You gave Your life, so I give my worship

You deserve my lifelong praise

When the chaos comes my way, I will choose to praise
