How does one stay afloat, when the circumstances of life are greater than the density of water? When Jehoshaphat had a vast army rise against him, he found himself in this exact position. Where he could have sunk underneath the pressure, he sought a different solution.
Instead of leaning on his own strength, he leaned on his community. They all came together to fast, pray and seek the Lord. Though he did not see a way out, he trusted that God would create one. In his heart, he set his eyes on Him.
By setting his eyes on God, He trusted that God’s sight would go beyond what he could see. And from that posture of complete surrender, God assured him the victory.
When you find yourself weighed down by the woes of life, set your eyes on God…
“Our God, will you not judge them? 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 on you.”
2 Chronicles 20:12 NIV
”Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty; Nor do I involve myself in great matters, Or in things too difficult for me. Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child [resting] with his mother, My soul is like a weaned child within me [composed and freed from discontent].“
Psalms 131:1-2 AMP
