The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14
Facing an enemy that is greater in size and strength can be very intimidating for most people. They do not feel that they are able to overcome a larger enemy on their own.
Many will flee the stronger enemy out of fear and not knowing what else to do. Others will attempt to attack the enemy on their own, ignoring their own weaknesses. Some will seek the help of others in order to win the battle. Very few will step back and let someone else fight the enemy for them.
As the Egyptian army was coming to get the Israelites, the people were afraid. Moses told them that God would fight for them and all they needed to do was be still.
Believers are not immune to being attacked by the enemy. In reality, the believer will be attacked more than the unbeliever because Satan is out to steal, kill and destroy.
Not only does the believer have physical attacks against them, as the Israelites did, there are also spiritual and mental attacks from the enemy.
As the enemy is coming in for attack, it is easy for a believer to feel all alone and helpless. Feeing this way allows for fear to creep in and cause one to doubt God and run in fear.
Instead of running in fearing, one must turn to God and trust in His abilities. God can strike the enemy in ways that are impossible for man to do. It may be a physical destruction as with the Egyptians, or it may be a diversion to stop the enemy.
Trusting God’s strength and power allows the believer to relax while walking in His commands and allow God to do what needs to be done.
The enemy will come against you to attempt to destroy you. He may be large and overwhelming, but God is greater. Do not allow the size of the enemy bring fear into your hearts, but allow it to cause you to turn to God for assistance.
God is greater than any enemy that may come against you. Rest in the fact that God cares for you and will come against any enemy rising up against you. Worship God and stand still knowing that the enemy cannot destroy you when God is on your side.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will remove all fear of the enemy; that God will destroy the enemies coming against you; that you will relax in God’s plan for your life; and that you will trust God’s protection over your life.
