“When Rehoboam had established his kingdom and made himself strong, he and all Israel abandoned Yahweh’s teachings.” II Chronicles 12:1
Rehoboam – his kingdom, his strength, no God.
We must remember always that everything we are and have us given to us by God. We must remember that we can’t do anything apart from God’s strength. As long as we are acknowledging God and depending on Him, we will not abandon Him. He has promised to never, never, never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5 complete with the triple negative in the original Greek text). He will never abandon us, therefore if we’re ever in a situation where we find ourselves apart from God, either we’re listening to and believing a lie, or we have abandoned Him.
