II Chronicles 20:12 “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.”

For the next few days I’d like to build on yesterday’s Devotional from Psalm 62:8 (Sunday, July 17, 2022) that spoke about pouring our hearts out to the Lord. Many times our prayers are impassioned statements such as, “Lord, right now I’m feeling….” “Lord, more than anything else right now, I want…” or “Lord, I don’t want to…” Tough words, spoken in the middle of tough times when our feelings & emotions are raw. But God has already seen our afflictions and knows our souls. (Psalm 31:7) And we need to remember that every emotion we’ll ever experience is an occasion to draw nearer to God. We are to cast all our cares on Him as He makes our steps firm…for even if we falter He won’t let us fall. (Psalm 55:22 & Psalm 37:23-24) Baring our souls to the Lord when we’ve come to the end of ourselves, is taking our hands off the situation and placing it into the more than capable hands of God.
