“God Is With Us At Our Head” ( 2 Chronicles 13: 12, ESV ) by Carley Evans

Abijah of Judah tells Jeroboam of Israel, “Do not fight against the Lord, the God of your fathers, for you cannot succeed.” (2 Chronicles 13:12) He says to Israel, “As for [Judah], the Lord is our God, and we have not forsaken Him.” (2 Chronicles 13:10) “We keep the charge of the Lord our God, but you have forsaken Him.” (2 Chronicles 13:11) Jeroboam ambushes Abijah so that “the battle is in front of and behind [Israel].” (2 Chronicles 13:14)  With a shout – a battle cry – the men of Judah call upon the Lord who “defeats Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.” (2 Chronicles 13:15)

Abijah says to Jeroboam before the battle, “God is with us at our head.”

Paul says to us, “[Christ] is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything He might be preeminent.” (Colossians 1:18)

“O Lord, there is none like You to help, between the mighty and the weak. Help us, O Lord our God, for we rely on You, and in Your Name we come against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; let not man prevail against You.” (2 Chronicles 14:11)
