Good Eyesight

In 2 Chronicles 20:12, there is a statement that carries great weight. In the face of an unsure battle a prayer is offered to God, "We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You." This is an incredible example of humility and dependence on the One who provides solutions to the problems we can't seem to overcome.

I think that we find ourselves in the position of not knowing what to do quite often, but we fall short in turning our vision to God in the process. We wait until things have deteriorated in our relationships or circumstances before we begin to pray desperate prayers. If we were willing to admit at the beginning of each day that we don't know what to do and that our vision is resting on God alone, it would change our focus. We would no longer journey through life depending on our strength, but instead trusting in God's ability to work in & through us. To see strongholds demolished and our lives restored, we need to admit our weaknesses and start turning our eyes to God.
