Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” – 2 Chron. 20:12

Judah was under siege and surrounded by enemies. The Ammonites and the Moabites, plus “others with them” (v. 1) came to fight against Judah. And in response, this was Jehoshaphat’s prayer:

“For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” – 2 Chron. 20:12

You don’t have any power; but God does. You don’t have the strength required for victory; but God does! You don’t have unlimited resources, but God does. Whatever deficit you are facing in your life: God is your provider and your supplier!

Jehoshaphat didn’t need a strong army; he needed a strong prayer life. And so do you. Wherever you need a miracle: bring that area of your life to God in prayer! You don’t have the power to make it happen, but God does.

Prayer:

Father, thank You for exercising Your power on my behalf! I am so grateful for Your strong right hand, and Your miracle-working power, in Jesus’ name!
