Sometimes… Do Nothing But Pray

Sometimes God does not want us to do anything, except pray and then watch. This was one of those times for Israel.

“‘Our God… we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You.’

… This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s…. You will not have to fight this battle.

Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you… Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’

… and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the Lord. Then some Levites… stood up and praised the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.”

📖 2 Chronicles‬ ‭20:12-19‬

See you at the altar of prayer where God gives to us His instructions… where SOMETIMES He issues the decree: “Just stand still and WATCH what I am going to do!”

When Darkness Approaches

Do you have a raging, dark storm quickly approaching you?

Do not be afraid.

God doesn’t only reveal Himself to us in wonderful worship services where even the impossible seems like child’s play for God to accomplish.

Most of the time it is in the midst of extreme danger and darkness that God reveals Himself to us. In these times He intends to test us, to show us what is in our hearts. He already knows what is in us, but He wants us to see for ourselves what is in us.

The storms of life are intended by the devil to “kill, steal, and destroy” us, (John 10:10) but it is God’s intention to reveal to us what is in us. He also wants to reveal to us what is in His heart, His love for us.

“When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear

Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.’

The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was.”

📖 Exodus‬ ‭20:18-21‬

See you at the altar of prayer, located in the center of that coming storm. Get ready to have a lot of revelation, of self and of God.

Do not be afraid.
