12 O our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless against this great multitude which is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You.”
The people of Judah were facing an overwhelming national disaster; one for which there was no possible solution. At least no solution that they could see or even imagine. It is one thing to say that with God all things are possible and quite another to have your “back against the wall” with no way of escape, no “plan B” in sight. Here then is an honest and helpful prayer: “Lord, we do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you” (Ps. Dale).
