I am still participating in reading through the Bible in 90 days with our small group. We will pass the half way mark through the Old Testament this week!
I am amazed that in the amount of reading I am doing on any given day, there are still details and phrases that stand out. These various things nestle deep into my thinking and my heart to ponder throughout the day.
Just yesterday in my reading, I discovered this one sentence. I have gone back to re-read it numerous times and have found great challenge and encouragement surrounding it.
In fact, I have even copied it to a 3x5 card and have placed it in my kitchen window personalizing and making this a prayer of my own heart as well.
II Chronicles 20:12b (NIV) "We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You.”
This is how Jehoshaphat ended his prayer to the Lord as armies were approaching to make war.
There is currently a sense of battle and warring in my own heart. I can't seem to make sense of all that is taking place. I do not know what to do, but one thing I do know... I will keep my eyes on Him.
God's response to the prayer of Jehoshaphat is worth reading and personally clinging to as well. I know I am. You can find it in II Chronicles 20: 15-21.
What have you been reading? What words of challenge, promise and encouragement have you discovered lately?
