“We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”
2 Chronicles 20:12
Whenever Sara and her husband Jack mowed and weeded their yard, aches and fatigue followed. The cost of house repairs signaled it was time to move.
They were confused by options and overwhelmed by thoughts of packing and relocating to a new neighborhood. One morning, they read a story about the Old Testament king, Jehoshaphat. Feeling helpless and powerless in battle, he prayed, “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” Sara and Jack prayed the same.
Answers didn’t come immediately, but God’s peace did. They waited and sought guidance from God. Opportunities fell into place.
When we’re overwhelmed and unclear about decisions, we can ask God to show us Biblical principles and the right information. We can move from confusion to peace.
Dear Father, thank you for your peace and wise answers to my dilemmas. Amen.
Reflect: Search for Biblical principles related to your decisions and questions.
