THE SURE WORD FOR TODAY'S QUOTATION FOR THE WEEK:
MY GOD WILL FIGHT FOR ME.
Stand Still and See — Part 5.
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.
Exodus 14:13 KJV).
The third part of Moses’ statement is “to see the salvation of the Lord.” As God led the Israelites out of Egypt, He brought them to a tight spot. The Israelites were scared to death when they realised they had been sandwiched by the Red Sea in front of them, and behind, they had the mighty army of Egypt led by Pharoah. On their side, they saw mountains. They saw no way out.
You, too, have found yourself in many situations where your smartness, intelligence, brains, and wisdom cannot rescue you. Logical thinking or being an intellectual is not the answer. You know all you need is to rely and depend totally and completely on God.
When it comes to God, there is no limitations or impossibilities. There is nothing too difficult for God. God is the author and the finisher of your faith. Without faith, you cannot please God. Faith is not next tomorrow or yesterday; faith is now, this moment. Faith is not necessary when there is no hope because faith is the substance of things hoped for. Your apparently impossible circumstances cannot limit God.
Moses may not have known exactly what God had in mind, but He believed what God said and faithfully passed on God’s encouraging message. When God is on our side, we do not need to fear or fret. God intended to fight their battles for them, including your battles. They did not need to fight against the well-armed Egyptian army, which was possibly the greatest army on earth at the time. The battle belongs to the Lord, and he will fight for you. Moses’ message and faith nudged them to step forward in faith when God opened the Red Sea in front of them.
God is more significant than any problem. God in you is greater than any difficulty you experience. God cares for you more than it is possible for any human being to realise. Faith is trusting God even when you don’t understand his plans.
