A True Confession The King's Dependence on the Lord - Taken from 2 Chronicles 22:12
When King Jehoshaphat stood in the house of the Lord and sought the presence of the Lord on account of the great multitude of enemies who were gathering against Jerusalem, the king uttered a great prayer.
In that prayer he made a beautiful confession..."We have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee." (2Chron 22:12). And all Judah stood before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children. What a blessed scene it must have been! The king and all his subjects acknowledged their weakness, their utter helplessness, and sought help from the Lord. How Jehovah must have been delighted with this prayer. It was abundantly answered.
In this confession is marked out the path to blessing, service, and victory for all the Lord's people. Blessed confession if in truth we can say in His presence, "We have no might-- we know not what to do-- our eyes are upon Thee!" Such an attitude of soul makes it possible for the Lord to manifest His mighty power towards us. He loves humility for He was here "meek and lowly." He delights in that which is little. Littleness is greatness in His sight.
Samuel said to King Saul, "When thou wast little in thine own eyes..." then the king was great. And how many were once little in their own eyes and great in God's sight, but they became great in their own eyes and little before God.
Keep us, Lord-- little, depending, trusting! May this be our daily prayer. We have no might, but Christ is our strength. We do not know what to do, but the Holy Spirit will guide us. Oh, for childlike dependence in all things!
