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 (THE LORD). Herein thou (King Asa) hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth THOU SHALT HAVE WARS. Then Asa was wroth with the seer, (today we call them Prophets), and put him in a prison house; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing. And Asa oppressed some of the people the same time. And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease HE SOUGHT NOT TO THE LORD, but to the physicians. And Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the one and fortieth year of his reign. 2 Chronicles 16:9-10,12-13. The Prophet Hanani, went to King Asa to tell him a Word from the Lord. King Asa threw Hanani into prison because he didn't like The Message. Asa was so angry, he even beat up on a few other people. The Lord allowed King Asa to get a disease in his feet. This will show you where his (your) heart is really at. Instead of FIRST going to the Lord to talk over his foot problem, Asa ONLY went to the doctors for help. Please understand, the Lord put doctors here to help us with our physical problems, that's OK, but is your Faith in God and His Healing Abilities alone? Or is your faith in doctors FIRST, and maybe God gets a quick prayer just to "include" Him in the problem? It's all about Heart Attitude. It's always Best to take anything and everything to the Lord first and talk it over with Him. Then, maybe, he'll send you to a person for help. A doctor, auto mechanic, whatever, the point is, is God FIRST, or is He always in second place with your problems? Question, if you have A Problem, you take it to the Lord, (so far so good), and He says, "Be still, I'll let you know later", are you willing to Wait on Him, and not run off to someone who can fix your problem faster? Can you Wait to, Be Blessed?
