“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14
God had brought the Israelites out of Egypt after doing many different great signs and wonders. It was a miracle in the way they were able to leave. God was now leading the people by appearing as a cloud by day and a pillar of fire at night. He led them to the edge of the Red Sea.
Shortly after Pharaoh allowed them to leave Egypt, he changed his mind and started to chase them again with his whole army. Now the people were trapped between the Red Sea and the armies of Egypt. There was no way out…that they could see.
Moses told them to not be afraid. He said God would fight for them. All they had to do was trust God and be still.
God had the plan already in place to have them do the impossible. He was going to part the Red Sea and allow them to cross it on dry ground.
In life there will be times as you follow God that He will bring you to what appears to be a dead-end. It will look like there is no more hope left, that you are going to be destroyed. These dead ends could be a sickness or some other destruction. The destruction could be physically or just spiritually, either way it is looks like the end of the line for you.
When times like this occurs, it is the time to sit back, be still, and trust God. Stop and worship God for who He is and what He has done in the past in your life. Look back on the miracles He has already done. There is nothing to big or too small for God to do. If He did it once in your life, He can do it again.
God sees the big picture. He also has a plan in place for you life.
When it looks like the end of the line for you, will you be afraid?
Or will you trust God?
Allow God to do a greater miracle in your life. He can part the waters for you in your Red Sea and fight for you.
I pray today that you will not fear anything that comes against you; that you will trust God’s plan for you; that you will trust that God will fight for you; and that God wants you to win in the end.
