And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.” Exodus 14:13
If the Israelites had not listened to Moses, but responded to the fear inside of them as they saw the Egyptians pursing them, they would never have reached their promised land. It’s impossible to see victory in battle when you’re running away from the front lines, you must stand your ground, face the enemy and trust God for victory.
Different battles are fought differently. I believe the key is, sitting in the presence of the Lord, asking for His plan and being obedient with His instructions. David learned the secret of this when he was a boy. All throughout this life he would ask God, “Should I fight? Should I pursue? What do You want me to do?” And God would always respond! ALWAYS!
I believe that someone needs to hear this right now. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, don’t be impatient with God. He has a plan and wants to share it with you, but you, you need to have faith in God, listen and obey.
Your deadlines are not His deadlines! Your ways are not His ways! What you hear may not make sense to you, it wasn’t meant to. If you could have figured it out, you wouldn’t need Him and He needs you to need Him.
Push in. Press in. Don’t be anxious. Don’t wring your hands and wonder. Just turn your face toward Him and worship Him for He knows the plans He has for you. They are good plans. They are plans that if you could see it, you’d be way down the road by now doing it all by yourself. Consider Him your team lead and let Him do just that; LEAD!
Let Him become what you think on, what you speak about. Let people worry you’ve lost touch with reality, it’s ok, you’ve touched Truth and it’s consumed you. You’re no longer moved by what you feel, your faith has made your situation move.
While you’re standing, be aware of who’s standing with you. You’re not alone! The God who created the universe stands with you and if He is for you, who can stand against you?
Let the ground shake, He’s in you and He’s victorious. Let the lion roar, He’s in you and He will shut the lions mouth. Let the rain fall and the wind blow, it’s not match for the Power in you. Don’t be intimidated by what you see around you, stand still and see the salvation of your God.
