When you are facing scary or overwhelming

circumstances, go to 2 Chronicles 20:1-24.  Read the passage.  I have the following sentences from this passage, underlined in my Bible.  “For we have no power to face this vast army attacking us.  We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”  And later, “Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army.  For the battle is not yours, but God’s.”  And later, “Stand still and see the deliverance the Lord will give you.”

No matter how harrrrd and how impossible and how scary your circumstances SEEM, and no matter how dysfunctional you are, you are not YOUR problem, but you are HIS problem.  This passage is for YOU.  And me.

Helps me so much to say over and over, “Thank You, Daddy, thank You, Jesus, thank You, Holy Spirit,” reminding me of His totally-sovereign reign over everything in my life.  The Israelites under Jehoshaphat THANKed God in the face of scary.
