13But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. . . . 14The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”Exodus 14:13-14
Perhaps you are like me. Attempting to craft a battle plan to wage war against the “enemy” in your life. This scripture is an invitation to stillness. It is difficult to sit quietly and to wait calmly while allowing another to work on my behalf. And yet, that seems to be God’s mode of operation.
There is another place we are invited to stillness. Psalm 46 paints an incredible picture of God’s protection in a world where nations are filled with chaos and kingdoms crumble (see v 6). The psalmist invites the reader to stillness.
10“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”Psalm 46:10
Today, I invite you to stillness. Wait patiently for God to rescue you today. He is fighting for you. Be confident in Him today.
