But Our Eyes Are on You

lundi 6 avril 2020, par Esther Elliot-Nyuma

“O our God, will you not judge them ? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us ; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon you.” - (2 chronicles 20 ; 12)

Have you ever been in one of those impossible situations with no apparent way out ? Have you ever desperately needed something or wanted something, but it seemed as though there was no way you would ever have it ? Have you ever thought there was no future for you, that it was just too late ? If so, then we need to know more about the power of God that can take place through prayer.

We find an example of this in 2 Chro 20, where Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah received a frightening report saying that a vast army was coming against them.

So what did Jehoshaphat do ? He prayed in 2 Chronicles 20:12. Then we read, “Now all Judah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children, stood before the Lord” (verse 13). That is such a powerful scene. Here was a multitude of vulnerable people with an invading army coming against them, and King Jehoshaphat was saying, “Lord, we are depending upon you. We don’t know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”

Many times we think of prayer as a last resort. After we have exhausted every other ‘possibilities’. But that is what we should have done in the first place. It has been said that if you are swept off your feet, it is time to get on your knees. God answers the prayers of His people and can turn around radical, hopeless situations when His people go to Him in prayer.

Prayer is possible because Jesus Christ has removed the barrier between us and God. God even hears our prayers even when our hearts are too burdened or confused even to speak. The Bible says, “The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” (Romans 8:26).

Thank God for the privilege of prayer and learn daily to “Cast all your anxieties on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

The Bible says, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).
