It is written: “Fear not, stand still (firm, confident, undismayed), and see the salvation (victory) of the Lord, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians (this problem, fight, difficulty) whom you see today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Ex. 14:13-14.
Some days we’re just too tired to fight any more; or maybe we don’t have the slightest idea how to get out of our mess. Good news…remind God of His word then stand and watch Him fight for you.
Do you want to step back in your own strength or step forward into God’s and stand?
I have found that my toughest day with God is better than my best day on my own.
To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson , “What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”
What lies within us? The Holy Spirit. The power that raised Christ from the dead! “ Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these…” John 14:12
That’s some power!
He left us His power and He is loving. He is gentle. He is tender. He is also persistent and wants good for us.
It is written: “I will be your safe place in difficult times.” Nahum 1:7
Go ahead…pray these verses to Him. After all, “He is God and He’s passionate about just one thing, His relationship with you.” Exodus 34:14 paraphrased
