Victory is on the way!

And Moses said to the people, "Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today."
Do you know the saying, "Don't just stand there, do something!"? Well, a while back I read a twist on this that said, "Don't just do something, stand there!" I love this idea because human nature can make us panic and think, "I have to do something quick to save myself," even if I don't know what to do.
Well, I'm sure that had to cross the minds of the children of Israel. There they were with the Red Sea straight ahead of them and Pharaoh's army about to overtake them. Panic had to be the theme of the day, but Moses wasn't panicking.
While he may not have known exactly what God was going to do to deliver them from Pharaoh's men, he knew that God was capable of the miraculous! So he spoke to God's people and said, "Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today!"
And as you know, God did not disappoint! He parted the sea and allowed the Israelites to walk across on dry land. And when they had finished crossing, he vanquished their enemy before their eyes.
Listen! If you are in a dry and barren place wondering if you're going to make it, just remember who's fighting your fight!
"Stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord!"
REMEMBER WHO'S FIGHTING YOUR FIGHT!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
