The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:14, NIV)
Because we are creatures wired for flight or fight, simply being still seems an awfully hard way to go about accomplishing things, doesn’t it?
Why do you think humans spend so much of their time and energy trying to accomplish things … even when the odds are stacked against them?
What events have happened in your life that you knew you were the only hope for your rescue and even then, it didn’t look good? How did your attempts to defeat the obstacle in this event work out for you? How would it have worked better by letting God fight for you?
How is being still an admission of the power of God and your faith in him? What can you do to be still today?
