We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you. 2 Chronicles 20:12 (ESV)
This week I was away at a conference and the speaker was talking about a challenging time in his life. He came head first into a situation that took him way outside his comfort zone. He felt God leading him on this path but he really didn’t have the first idea how to handle it. He didn’t know what step to take next.
Then he said something that made my mind race. He said, “I didn’t know what to do but I did know how to pray.”
I had to ask myself. How many times am I faced with a problem that I don’t know how to handle? How many times do I stop and give up because I am not sure what step to take next? Probably more often than I want to admit. And why?
Sure, I may not know what to do next but God does. And, I do know how to pray! Even if my praying is faulty, the Bible tells us the Holy Spirit is actively taking our prayers and presenting them perfectly to God.
Jesus, I often don’t know what to do but my eyes are fixed on you because you have the answer! Please remind me that the prayer tool in my toolbox is the perfect tool for any situation. Amen!
