YOUR CHOICE // JUNE 29, 2020
So the king of Israel went with the king of Judah and the king of Edom, and they marched on that roundabout route seven days; and there was no water for the army, nor for the animals that followed them.
2 Kings 3:9, NKJV
On their way to do battle against their enemy, King Jehoshaphat and his allies found themselves in a dry, lifeless wasteland. Without water they would die from thirst and/or be annihilated by their enemy.
You may have stepped into 2020 expecting it to go a certain way. Now, after 16 weeks of quarantine you may be looking around at a dry and lifeless year. You didn't anticipate this. You didn't necessarily do anything to cause it. But it happened. Quarantine along with its economic impact happened. Racial tension happened. Yet, in the midst of what has happened you have a choice to make. What you choose will cause a ripple effect in the lives of those closest to you. If you choose to put your eyes on Jesus you can be assured of God's plans to deliver you from your enemy.
Take time today to think about your current situation. What choices do you have before you? What does it look like for you to put your eyes on Jesus and trust Him?
