Look Up to God

“We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”

(2 Chronicles 20:12 NIV)

A vast army was coming to make war with King Jehoshaphat of Judah. Instead of depending on his own ability or going into panic, the wise king “resolved to inquire of the LORD” and “proclaimed a fast for all Judah” (2 Chronicles 20:3). In addition to that, “he stood up in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem at the temple of the LORD” and prayed (v.5), uttering the famous words, “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you” (v.12).

I admire what Jehoshaphat did and it’s clear from the story that God did too. I believe that God often places us in situations where we’re not capable of dealing with them in our own strength because they teach us to turn to Him instead. In fact, we learn to seek and trust Him the most when we don’t know what to do.

When you don’t know what to do, look up to God.
