The Lord will combat for you; you want solely to be nonetheless. Exodus 14:14
I like watching American soccer. Theres one thing in regards to the combating, the clawing, the large effort it takes for gamers to take the ball these previous few necessary inches.
Regardless of the sport, we get excited when an athlete pushes ahead with each ounce of grit they possess to attain, win, or make it first throughout the end line. We honor the combat.
Nonetheless, in our relationship with God, restraint and relaxation are sometimes required as an alternative of combating. All through the Bible there are tales of Gods folks preparing for battle, solely to be informed by God to be nonetheless. In Exodus 14, when the Egyptians had been on their heels, God informed Moses to inform the folks to only be nonetheless. In Joshua 6, as an alternative of mustering all of their power to assault Jericho, the Israelites had been instructed to march across the metropolis and revel in a straightforward victory. When two nice armies got here towards Judah in 2 Chronicles 20, God informed them that they’d not need to combat, as a result of he would ship them.
I can not depend the variety of instances I’ve worn myself out preparing for a battle I knew was coming. I deliberate what I’d say and the way I’d reply to the opposite individual. There have been far fewer instances after I paused and requested God to combat for me. What nervousness I might have given up in trade for peace in him!
God guarantees to combat for us. We dont need to stay with nervousness over the battles. We will stay with peace figuring out that Gods acquired this.
Lord, assist me belief you within the battles I face. Improve my peace as I allow you to combat for me. Thanks to your promise. Amen.
