2 Chronicles 25: Overthrow

“God has the power to help or to overthrow.” -2 Chronicles 25:8

Movie makers strategically plan to hit the Top 10 at the weekend box office. So do many publishers. Sports franchises target championships. Companies target sales goals. What determines whether someone is victorious or not?

We tend to think our human efforts make the difference. While we can influence much through our actions, any large effort requires a team of people.

Others, realizing this, seek to work through teams or movements of people to achieve goals ranging from franchise growth to personal fitness.

But there’s only one factor that can guarantee success against a formidable opponent–God.

When we rely on ourselves or others, we can tip the battle in our favor, yet we can never predict the future perfectly. Only the Creator of space and time can.

If we want to win, to “overthrow” the opponents we face in life, we must rely on him. Anything less is simple a human effort with an unpredictable finish. Only with Jesus can we count on victory, not only in this life, but also the next.
