“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. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” ~ Exodus 14:13-14
FEAR NOT: Stand Still
This is a favorite passage of Scripture. The Hebrews had just left Egypt and were still in the desert. Behind them was Pharoah’s army in hot pursuit and in front of them was the Red Sea. Where were they to go? How could they escape? They were “between the devil and the deep blue sea”.
Yet God made a way for them in this impossible situation. God rescued them in a way that only He could do. The rest of the chapter describes how God parted the waters of the Red Sea so that they could walk through and when Pharoah’s army tried to follow, God closed the waters again and Pharoah’s army was swallowed up, drowned.
Sometimes we too will face impossible situations, but IF we are walking in the will of God doing the work of God, He WILL make a way for us to come through, to escape. Our challenge in to “stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD”.
FEAR NOT, Believer, “The Lord shall fight for you”.
When you look around
And things look grim
Stand your ground
And look up to (Elo)him
“Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you… FEAR NOT, nor be dismayed… for the LORD will be with you.” ~ 2 Chronicles 20:17
