“At that time the seer Hanani came to King Asa of Judah, and said to him, ‘Because you relied on the king of Aram, and did not rely on the LORD your God, the army of Aram has escaped you. Were not the Ethiopians and the Libyans a huge army with exceedingly many chariots and cavalry? Yet because you relied on the LORD, he gave them into your hand. For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the entire earth, to strengthen those whose heart is true to him. You have done foolishly in this; for from now on you will have wars.’ Then Asa was angry with the seer, and put him in the stocks, in prison, for he was in a rage with him because of this. And Asa inflicted cruelties on some of the people at the same time.” 2 Chronicles 16:7-10

How often do I (you) become angry when the results of my actions do not turn out favorably to me? When I have relied on someone or something other than God? Why am I (are we) surprised? God’s promises lead us into the future – Over-the-Horizon. To respond properly I/we need Over-the-Horizon faith.
