“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace (Exodus 14:13-14).”
The Word of the Lord is sent, among other things, to encourage us. It’s encouraging to know that God will fight our battles. We simply must stand still and watch how miraculously He moves on behalf. While we’re standing, it wouldn’t hurt to bless Him. We were created, after all, to praise & worship Him … and to make it glorious!
Thank you, Lord, for battles already won, for victory in the midst of trials and for your mercy and grace. I like where it says, “ye shall see them again no more for ever.” I have a few problems that I’d like to ‘see again no more forever.’ But I thank God that we don’t need to raise our voices, except in praise, that we don’t need to get out of character and don’t need to display an unpleasant attitude–but that we can allow Him to keep us in perfect peace as we keep our minds stayed on Him and trust Him (Isaiah 26:3). I believe God! The devil is a liar (lie), and one evangelist said, ‘and so is his mother-in-law!’
And so as we go through our tests and trials, know that we’re not alone in going through (we all have trials) and that God is right there with us. I Peter 4:12 tells us, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:” Instead, we are told to rejoice. And we can easily do this if we understand that God is going to bring us out victoriously.
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness (Isaiah 41:10). Thank you, Lord, for the encouragement found in your Word. Thanks for visiting.
