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. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:13–14, NIV)
It is one of the greatest victories in Israel’s history, the “fight” between Israel and Egypt at the Red Sea. You find references to the victory throughout the entire Bible. And what did the Israelites do to accomplish that victory? Nothing … they only had to be still.
Think of a time when you felt trapped between a rock and a hard place, much like the Israelites were in this story. What plans did you make to get out of the mess you were in? Why did you think you had the wherewithal to accomplish those plans?
Why is it so difficult for us to be still in the midst of adversity?
How can you trust God more today to accomplish that which really, only he can accomplish in your life anyway?
