This is the audio from the June 7, 2020 sermon, “When You Don’t Know What To Do: FIX Your Mind”, shared by Tom Lemler at the North Wayne Mennonite Church.
Text: 2 Chronicles 20:1-19
What do you do when you look around and you just don’t know what to do? When the struggles of life seem overwhelming and the opposition just too large? When the problems have no logical solution, it is time to fix your mind on things above rather than on the things of this earth.
So, let’s take a look at what we need to FIX when we don’t know what to do:
- Focus your eyes:
- 2 Chronicles 20:12 — When life seems too confusing to figure out, it is time to focus your eyes on the One who sees everything clearly. When Jehoshaphat could see no way of success or victory, he knew his only good option was to focus his gaze upon God and trust in Him. When we don’t know what to do, we focus our eyes on God and trust Him.
- Instruct your mind:
- 2 Chronicles 20:15 — When life is full of conflicting information and requests, it is time to instruct your mind with the truth of God. Even with a focus on God and a trust in Him, there is a need to instruct our minds and do the things of God. When we don’t know what to do, we look to God and His Word for instruction and direction.
- eXpress your worship:
- 2 Chronicles 20:18-19 — When life presents you with too many options to know what is best, it s time to express your worship of God to Him. Jehoshaphat and the people chose to worship God even before they discovered the results of God’s victory. When we don’t know what to do, we continue to worship God for what He has done and for what He will do.
When you FIX your mind on things above, it should change the way you do life here on earth!
