Our Eyes Are On You

I love God's word. Tonight I have been doubly blessed. I received a word of encouragement from the Lord and was reminded of a great story too!

First the word of encouragement...
2 Chronicles 20:12 O our God, will you not execute judgment on them? For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”

Sometimes I feel just like Jehoshaphat. I don't know what to do, but I will put my eyes on the Lord. I know He is able to deliver. And boy did He deliver...He used the choir?
21 And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the Lord and praise him in holy attire, as they went before the army, and say,

“Give thanks to the Lord,
for his steadfast love endures forever.”

22 And when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed. 23 For the men of Ammon and Moab rose against the inhabitants of Mount Seir, devoting them to destruction, and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they all helped to destroy one another.

Yes, the choir. What did God ask His people to do? He asked them to sing and He delivered in a mighty way. What a mighty God we serve!

Lord, when I don't know where to go or what to do, please help me to keep my eyes on You.
