We have a choice each day. We can go our own foolish way or follow our sovereign God! If we choose the latter, He will surely use everything that happens to strengthen our faith and draw us closer to Himself.
An Old Testament king gave us a wonderful model prayer. When enemy forces threatened to attack God’s people, Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:
“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You? …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 20:6, 12
