II Chronicles 20:12 ” For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”

With a great hoard of enemy soldiers marching towards them, King Jehoshaphat found himself and the people of Judah powerless before them. But it tells us earlier in verses 3 and 4 of this Chapter that, “Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah. The people of Judah came together to seek help from the Lord.” They readily admitted they were helpless and had no idea what they could do to save themselves…yet they firmly believed God could intercede on their behalf and save them. There are times in all our lives when we come to the end of ourselves…powerless over disease that wracks our body, helpless over the loss of a spouse, defenseless as we watch a loved one die. But that’s when our eyes need to be on the Lord and not the situation…or as Psalm 25:15 tells us, “My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only He will release my feet from the snare.”
