What to do When You Don’t Know What To Do…

Question
Several years ago, I had a couple of powerful moments with my kids. One morning my daughter says to me, “Daddy, did you have good dreams?” “No,” I replied, “I didn’t have any dreams.” She quickly responded, “That is sad. Everyone needs dreams!” I was stunned and struck with the enormity of my 3-year-old’s wisdom. Then, two days later my son hit me with another big question. “Dad, have you ever let a team down that was counting on you to win?” “Yes son, more times than not,” was my reply. The fragile thoughts of an 8-year-old, desperately wanting to be older and better than he feels on the inside! “How do you get past that Dad?” “Well son……………………”

Have you ever had those thoughts yourself! Have you ever measured the surroundings of your world and wondered exactly what to do with the fact that you are dreamless; that you feel like everything in the world is crashing down on you. These feeling are not just for the young at heart or the young in body! These feelings are for those that have a heartbeat. Whether young or old, rich or poor, married or single, you will find yourself asking the question “What do I do when I do not know what to do?”

Scripture answers that question for us in 2 Chronicles 20:1-30 (Click to read.). No I am going to let you read it for yourself, but I want to give you the answer to the question…

Look at verse 3…“Terrified, he begged God for guidance!”

  1. Look to God for help! Vs. 12 – “O our God, we do not what to do, but we are looking to you for help.”
  2. Fear Not! Vs. 15 – “Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army!”
  3. Keep your eyes on God! Vs. 17 – “…watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you!”
  4. Have Faith! Vs. 20 – “Believe in the Lord your God and you will be able to stand firm!”
  5. Now! Vs. 22 – “At the very moment…”

We are all going through stuff! Some through financial hardships! Some of us are going through a family crisis! Some of us have been to the Doctor recently and the outcome seems unchangeable. You may be going through it and lost the dreams, and feel lost in the middle of familiar surroundings!
