2. The prophet said to King Asa, "The Lord is with you while you'll be with Him..."
3. The hand of God is a symbol of power, guidance, protection, anointing.
D. "Keep me from evil."
1. It will rob me of His blessings.
2. It will narrow my vision.
3. It will cause God to remove His hand.
4. The Lord incorporated this in His model prayer. "Deliver us from evil."
5. "That it would not grieve me."
a. This is a true view of the end result of evil in my life.
b. Many associate evil with pleasure, excitement, fun.
III. "AND GOD GRANTED HIM THAT WHICH HE REQUESTED."
A. "And we know that if we ask anything according to His will..."
B. It is God's will to bless you, enlarge your vision, hand upon you, and keep you from evil.
