For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. You have acted foolishly in this. Indeed, from now on you will surely have wars. II Chronicles 16:9
The King of Judah seemingly forgot that the Lord was his best source for help in times of strife. When war threatened, he begin to make alliances to build his strength. God's prophet reminded the king that he had made a foolish mistake and his wars would continue. Have we made that foolish mistake? When we ask God for help last after all our other resources, we have it backwards. With it, our strife will also continue. God is looking and waiting the our call.
