Exodus 14:14 – “The Lord will fight for you; you only need to be still.”
In our busy world, it is very difficult for us to be still. We keep running after our chores, trying to get things done, make our finances meet, etc. We are always in a hurry. When we come across difficulties in our life, are we willing to slow down? Our Creator is all-knowing and He is always willing to be there for us. He expects us to “be still and know that He is God” (Psalm 46:10).
When the Israelites were standing in between the Red Sea and the Pharaoh’s chariots, they were terrified and started grumbling against God and Moses. In Exodus 14:13-14, “Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”” The Red Sea parted and the Israelites were delivered from the Pharaoh’s chariots.
Dear friends, no matter what our troubles are, let us “be still” and take our problems to God, who is able to deliver us from our troubles and miseries.
