Be still

Exodus 14:13  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.”

This is one of the most powerful verses in the Bible.  I doubt that the troubles you face today are as fierce as the Egyptians coming down on the Israelite’s.   Fear, trepidation, danger, death . . .

And yet – here was God’s command:

Do not be afraid

Stand firm

Watch God’s deliverance

Your enemy will be removed

The Lord will fight for you

Be still

Not much else to say.  Memorize this and place it in your heart.

  1. yeah, it’s not the memorization that’s hard, it’s practicing it!! It is unbelievably hard to stand still when everything around feels like it’s crashing!!
