In What?

 
One of his chief officers, Pekah son of Remaliah, conspired against him. Taking fifty men of Gilead with him, he assassinated Pekahiah, along with Argob and Arieh, in the citadel of the royal palace at Samaria. So Pekah killed Pekahiah and succeeded him as king. - 2 Kings 15:25
 
 
When push turns to shove, where do you turn for help, strength and encouragement?
 
To who do you look?
 
When the chips are down; who do you call on? which number do you dial?
 
Do you rely on experience?, human connections? or relationships?
 
Trust in the LORD forever: for in the LORD GOD is everlasting strength: (Isaiah 26:4)
 
Pekahiah was deposed even though he had two 'strong', seemingly dependable bodyguards with him - Argob and Arieh. Argob refers to a stony heap, an island previously ruled by Og the giant, in the land of the giants. Arieh means a lion, the king of the animals. Pekahiah, whose name means 'the Lord opened his eyes' was still overcome by antagonists even though the Lord had opened his eyes!
 
Our trust, our help. must be in the Lord alone (Jeremiah 17:5-9). Jesus alone can make people, events, even 'lions' rise up for your help and defend you when it matters most.
 
The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turns it wherever he will (Proverbs 21:1)
 
As you trust in the Lord, may He open your eyes to see the invincible. May you understand and know the things that matter. May He shield you from the attacks of the enemy; uphold, strengthen and help you continually; in Jesus mighty name! Amen.
 
Peace!
