“Neither know we what to do; but our eyes are upon Thee.” 2 Chron. 20:12
Doubt comes to us all. We ask friends, advisors, counselors, and family – what am I to do, where should I go, what is my calling, etc? Even at my ripe old age, I find myself constantly returning to the question — “what to do?” As children of faith we face the problem of a life in our faith and worldly demands and requirements. I know that each and every one of you pace, fret, and pray and yet the answers don’t come easy. Thus the wisdom of Chronicles use of the plural – “we.”
In the same wisdom we also find the answer – “our eyes are upon thee.” If every decision, every problem, and every dilemma is resolved with the answer – “my eyes are upon Thee – then we know we are headed in a manner that pleases God. It is when we divert our eyes, turn our back, or close our lids to avoid God’s light that we stray. If we keep our eyes fixed on God, confide in God, we cannot but rejoice.
