We do not know what to do,
but our eyes are upon you.
—2 Chronicles 20:12
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a brilliant young theologian, vocally opposed Hitler’s regime—a losing battle in the sense that he was imprisoned in 1943 and hanged in 1945.
Bonhoeffer’s favorite verse was, “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you.”
Human solutions are elusive (we do not know what to do); divine solutions are conclusive (our eyes are upon you).
“I do not know what to do!” You’ve said that at times, haven’t you?
Maybe you’re facing a predicament today where you don’t know what to do. If so, lean on the rest of the text: but my eyes are upon you.
God has his eyes on you.
Keep your eyes on God.
