The Eyes Of Jehoshaphat

The Eyes Of Jehoshaphat…

In the battle of Jehoshaphat, the people of God are in what appears to be a hopeless situation – outmanned and out-armed. They pray: “We are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us. And we don’t know what to do – but our eyes are on You.”

Notice that they don’t avoid dealing with the problem. They are fully aware of the situation. But the key is – they don’t keep their focus on it. They don’t know what to do, BUT! There’s the key.

They don’t have to know what to do or how to figure it out. They just have to get their eyes on the Lord, who does. That means they had to get their eyes off their problems, and they had a lot of problems to get their eyes off of.

If they could get their eyes off of the attacking army and onto God – then how much more can you get your eyes off of your problem and onto God. You don’t have to know what to do, BUT… do one thing – get your eyes on Him who does.

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2

Today, if you’re faced with a situation that you don’t know how to handle – it’s okay – lift up your eyes and fix them on the Answer.

Walk daily with God at your side!
