2 Chronicles 20:12 O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.”

When we become parents for the first time, we go back to school after a significant delay, or we start a business, the unknown is evident. For the most part, we don’t know what to do or how to do it. When the unknown is so apparent, that should make us seek and trust God even more.

Instead of going through trial and error, risking failure, and attempting to handle this big task on our own, we should seek God all the more. Historically, God placed people in situations where they can’t succeed in their own strength (Numbers 13; Joshua 6; 1 Samuel 17). He placed individuals in situations where they had to depend on God.

Today is no different. God intentionally places us in situations where we can’t succeed on our own. This is done so that we can trust, lean on, and rely on Him. Instead of becoming upset with God regarding how difficult circumstances are, begin to seek God on how to overcome those circumstances. And like the people in the Bible, when we seek God, we’re guaranteed victory. When we don’t know what to do, seek God.
