I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
Sometimes I don't know what to do. Sometimes I try to figure things out before going to the Lord. I need to take a page out of King Jehosophat's book and do what he did. When he was surrounded, looking like defeat was probable, he called for a fast and sought the Lord. He didn't react impulsively; he took the time to seek God on the matter. He even waited for the answer and then acted on all God said. (See II Chronicles 20 for a powerful story on how to handle attacks!)
He ended the prayer with this declaration:
"We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You.” (II Chronicles 20:12b AMPC)
This is key in anything we face. We don't have to know what to do when we know we can turn to God. He's an ever-present help in time of trouble. He will not leave us or forsake us. We can depend on Him.
"God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge! You’re a proven help in time of trouble—more than enough and always available whenever I need you." (Psalm 46:1 TPT)
"For He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]" (Hebrews 13:5b AMPC)
Abba Father, thank You for always being with me and giving me direction. When I don't know what to do, I can look to You. Thank You that my heart is anchored in You. Thank You that no matter what I am going through, no matter what I may face, I can find peace, direction, and healing in You.
REST IN THIS ASSURANCE FROM THE LORD:
"You shall not need to fight in this battle; take your positions, stand still, and see the deliverance of the Lord [Who is] with you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Fear not nor be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you." (2 Chronicles 20:17 AMPC)
Let God fight for you. In the meantime, take your position, stand still, and see God work on your behalf. Your position is faith and a heart of praise. Praise is a weapon that changes things. And sometimes the change begins with you, with your perspective of what's going on.
"And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir who had come against Judah, and they were [self-] slaughtered." (2 Chronicles 20:22 AMPC)
