"God's on Your Side - The Winning Side"
“We are helpless in the face of this large army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but we look to you for help.”
2 Chronicles 20: 12 GNT
When you feel overwhelmed, it’s important to go to God in prayer and confess your inability and inadequacy. You need to be honest if you’re afraid; tell God exactly how you feel just as the king did.
Ever been in the situation where you’re not exactly sure what to do? Maybe it wasn’t three armies, so you thought you could handle it.
You start at the beginning of the week thinking maybe you can handle it on your own, but by Wednesday you’re out of power. Maybe you’ve felt like the author of this poem:
“The world had a hopeful beginning
But man spoiled it all by sinning
We trust that the story
Will end in God’s glory
But right now the other side’s winning”
It’s pretty disheartening when it seems like the other side is winning. So what do you do? Like Jehoshaphat remind God that you are powerless but He is not.
What matters is that you put your trust in Him.
Peace in the Lord,
