2 Chron 16:12 In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa was afflicted with a disease in his feet. Though his disease was severe, even in his illness he did not seek help from the LORD, but only from the physicians.
This verse has intrigued me for years. In my mind, I thought the Bible said that God was angry with Asa for not seeking Him, but I couldn't find it when I was looking this time. I must have assumed that.
Check out 2 Chron 15:17: Although he did not remove the high places from Israel, Asa's heart was fully committed to the LORD all his life.
I think Asa's life is a good example of loving God but not having all that we could have in Him.
Why wouldn't the King remove the high places? Why didn't he consult the Lord about his feet?
We had such a neat conversation about Job, I wanted to see what you guys thought about King Asa. :)
