Facing the armies of Israel, the leaders of Aram pondered their strategies. Much of their focus was on their faulty understanding of the God of Israel. In the process, these leaders made two incorrect assumptions:

They assumed that God was limited by place and time. They felt that He had limits and only could act in certain places or do certain things. They assumed that they could do whatever they wanted and outsmart God. What they didn’t know is that He is God everywhere! He is God of the hills and mountains, valleys and rivers, city and country, inside and outside, day and night.

Second, they depended on their human resources and their leaders. They believed that success depended on their skills and abilities. They didn’t understand the power of God or know that “if God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)

Many people today are just like those Arameans. They think they are smarter than God. They think they can escape His presence or ignore His laws. Many others fail to understand that He is the God of the universe, the Creator of all things.

The truth is that if we trust in Him, we have the greatest Leader of all, a Leader who cannot be defeated. And we have all the resources we need, because we serve Almighty God!

In your life, remember that God is with you right now. He is with you wherever you go and whatever you do. He is ready to protect and guide you, to meet your needs and answer your prayers. His promises are true, and He loves you! You can depend on Him.
