A VERSE TO SHARE
“You need only to be still”. I need this advice from Moses almost daily. Do you? So often I work to solve my own problems and between running around aimlessly with my mind turning about 1000 RPMs I can’t hear anything. In those instances, things would be so simple if I would only take Moses’ instruction to “be still”.
In other words, “God’s got this”.
A little later in this story, God opens the waters and Moses sends his people across. Can you imagine obeying God and crossing the water by walking on the ocean bottom with a wall of water on either side of you? The mental image is overwhelming. Sure enough though, Moses might as well have said, “God’s Got this”.
Exodus 14: 10-14
As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!”
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. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
