Be Still

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

 

The Israelites were trapped, with the Red Sea in front of them and the Egyptian army behind them. Most of them figured they were going to die, but Moses knew the power of God. Instead of giving up he gave it up to God. And with an act of faith, he raised his staff to the heavens and God not only parted the Red Sea to make a way but destroyed the Egyptian army in the process.

What do we do when faced with a crisis? We usually go into battle mode, think of all strategies we can, call all the connections we know. But when you trust God you have the greatest connection in the universe. Be still and call unto the Lord to fight for you, no enemy is greater than our God.

(Psalm 37:7) “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”

 

True faith takes patience, sometimes it seems like God has forsaken us but the truth is he is working on your victory.  When our enemies seem to be getting the best of us, usually they are defeating themselves. As God promised he will make our enemies our footstool.

Are you involved with a confrontation right now at home? at work? at school ? Don’t fall into there trap, be still in the Lord and let him fight for you. There is no more powerful force then our Creator.

(Lamentations 3:26) “It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.”

 

They say the worrying is like a rocking chair, takes a lot of energy but you never get anywhere. I know sometimes its easier said then done, but when your enemy has you at your most vulnerable, that’s when you need to take the leap of faith and call upon God.  No need to stress out about how it’s going to happen just give it up to God.

(Psalm 46:10) “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”

 

Next time your faced with a fight, be still and remember God is on the throne. There is no greater force, if God is with us then who can be against us? Don’t focus on how big your enemy is, focus on how big your God is.

God is fighting for you today, your victory is coming soon. No need to stress out just be still and stay in peace with God in Jesus name

    This morning I felt a nudging in my spirit to come online and check your posts. I got distracted with chores and then again as I sat down singing praises, I felt the nudge again, this time I followed through. GOD IS SO FAITHFUL. This message has so many Scripture verses throughout that confirms verses that He’s been sending me this week. In fact, I was just reading and reflecting on the words, ‘the courage to be still’ right before reading this Divinely inspired post. It’s truly a God send.

    I thank the Lord and give Him glory for placing this message in your heart today. God bless.
