Whose plan?

2 Chronicles 25

Amaziah king of Judah had a plan. On the face of it a good plan. He was strengthening his army for conquest. He had a strong army but had hired some mercenaries from the rest of Israel and increased his forces by a third. All good until God interrupts his plan.

God sent a prophet to tell him to send these recruits home , he didn't need them. Puzzled Amazaiah asks the question why. The reply is profound.

“God’s help is worth far more to you than that,” (v9)

Its good to have plans, ideas and strategy. God gave us brains to use for his glory. But are we prepared for our plans to be interrupted, tested and even changed.

Watch out for God interruptions and always be prepared to follow his advice. God's help far outweighs any other help.
