Our eyes are upon you

2 Chronicles 20:12
"Oh our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you."

Our daily battles are not ours but Gods. The only way to get though them are to lay them down. Battles are different for everyone- Marriage, Money, Friends, Family- Sometimes I feel as if I need to lay down on the battlefield in fetal position and cry. But that is not what God wants us to do. He wants us to lay our problems-battles at the feet of Jesus. Daily life is a battle- We must be ready. Daily we need to meet with Jesus early in the morning and pray. Sit still. Just be with him. Sit alone with him.
Why is that so hard. If we know what we must do, why is it so hard? Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night- I feel God is asking me to spend time with him- It is then I start whining- Father I am tired, please let me sleep. What am I missing by not taking these small sacrifices for God?
Will I ever see the big picture? We keep ourselves so busy daily - Satan uses this to keep our eyes off God and on ourselves. This poem says it all.........
                                        Talk it over with God.....
You're worried and troubled about everything. Wondering and fearing what tomorrow will bring. You long to tell someone, for you feel so alone, But your friends are all burdened with cares of their own. There is only one place and only one friend, Who is never too busy, and you can always depend on him to be waiting with arms open wide, To hear all the troubles you came to confide..... For the heavenly father will always be there when you seek him and find him at the alter of prayer.
Keep your eyes on God!
