For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars. 2 Chronicles 16:9
This verse makes it clear that God wants to use people. He wants to use people to show his power and might. God is upset at king Asa because instead of trusting God he trusted man. King Asa turned to other kings for help and did not ask his God for help. God makes it very clear to him that He wants to show his power through us. I need to remember that God wants to use me to show his power. It does not matter my talents or abilities. All that matters is that we have the right attitude and heart towards God.
