What To Do?


Facing a battle?
Don’t try to—
Figure your way through,
Reason your way through,
Guess your way through,
Feel your way through,
Push your way through,
Manipulate your way through;
Fake your way through. 

What should you do?
Trust your way through!
We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. 2 Chronicles 20:12 AMP

Pray your way through!
Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance. Ephesians 6:18 AMP 

Believe your way through!
This is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4 AMP

Walk your way through!
When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43:2-3 NLT 

Praise your way through!
So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Joshua 6:20 NKJV

    All you need to do is SURRENDER to His Will! Rely on his strength for he will carry you through the darkness, the uncertainty that can easy cloud one’s thinking. We are not equipped to be able to accomplish the task in our strength. We need to acknowledge that we are weak, hopeless, and incapable of doing it without the Holy Father. We just need only to let go, and call on him and trust and lean on him for all understanding. In doing so, he alone will enrich our lives and fulfill his promises that he has laid out in the Bible to his children. Don’t walk through this world without knowing the Father’s love! Like the Shepherd he cares, and loves (and knows each of his sheep)and protects them with his assurance and guidance. One should find ways through out the day to praise the Heavenly Father (for example look to nature at the beautiful sunset, or the smell of a pine tree, etc.). Oh What a Might God we serve! Anchor yourself in the midst of his arms and just believe (trust, rely on) in him. All things are possible when you have the Father in your life and follow his ways! God Bless all who read this.

    Such a timely message for me. Thanks to the woman who sent me here. I am battling to get my children back from their Godless father. I’m trying to trust more in the Lord and know that the matter is safely in His hands!

      Beth, Do not give up hope. Under the Eye, A Composer’s Journey is the detailed account of God delivering me from absolutely hopeless circumstances. You can find it available online. It will address the exact situation that you presently find yourself in. We may be blind, but it is certain that God can see. :-) Brenda

    Thank you so much for sharing this devo full of meaningful thoughts and truths, Roy(if I may). I needed this, too. The issues with my 17 year old daughter are difficult to deal with. I get reminders such as you have shared, and I must use them much more often. :) God continue to bless you richly!

    Thank you, Roy, for always sharing such encouraging messages! I have been much blessed by them. If you go to my site you will find my book, Under the Eye, that traces the mighty hand of God in my life and His constant deliverances. We are a people most blessed, who serve the Almighty! :-)

    How amazingly merciful our loving Lord is, I have chronic health problems and was feeling so depressed tonight I wondered how much longer I could go on being brave and fighting.. Then I found a link to this site when I checked my emails. I don’t need to fight, my loving Jesus will do this for me if I trust in Him. Thank you Roy and thank you dear Jesus!!!
