What did the Lord say to Moses at the banks of the Red Sea?
“Fear Not! Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will show to you this day….The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
Sometimes, all we have to do is stand back and keep silent. We only need to wait and watch.
Though it goes against our human nature, we don’t always have to take action. When oppression comes, we don’t always have to speak up or defend ourselves or fight back.
The Lord is our helper. We need not fear what man will do to us. The Lord is our strength. The Lord is our guide, our teacher, our protector, our Savior, our King.
There may be times when we have to speak or act or defend ourselves. But, when our efforts appear to be ineffective, when we’ve reached our personal Red Sea and the army of evil is fast approaching, we should stand still, look to the Lord, bow down, and humbly declare our helplessness.
Then, simply watch Him work.
