One day at work I had a situation come up that was somewhat overwhelming to me. It had been a terrible week and for whatever reason I was just feeling blah. After a discussion with a fellow employee I just fell apart. It put me way over the edge. As I went back to the office the only thing going through my mind was "I need a word from the Lord." I kept thinking that over and over...so I googled it. I put in "word from the Lord" and this is what came up.
We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you. II Chronicles 20:12b NIV
Is that not perfect! Exactly what I needed! How many times are we in a place where we do not know what to do or how to fix whatever problem is facing us? The good news is we don't have to. Throughout my cancer ordeal last year, God reminded me of Romans 8:28:
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
When we look at those two verses together, we can be assured that God is working things out for our good and our job is just to keep our eyes fixed on Him. When we can do that, He will bring us sweet peace. He is so good!
