The Journey with Ron Moore

God Will Fight for You | Exodus 14:14

Exodus 14:14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.

The twins of fear and doubt roll in like thirty-foot waves and crash onto the shore of our soul. They produce anxiety that leads to more fear and “what if” questions that lead to doubt.

Fresh from being delivered from slavery, the Israelites were caught between the powerful Egyptians and the Red Sea. No wonder they were terrified and cried out, “It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert.” Moses calmed them, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today…The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” You know the rest of the story.

Here they come rolling in, the waves of fear and doubt, caused by sickness, job loss, a relationship breakup, illness of a loved one, discouragement, death. You can’t stand up under the force of the crashing wave. You don’t have to. The Lord will absorb the powerful force for you. You need only to be still.

Lord, I want to stand firm, but there are times when fear takes over. I want to live with faith, but there are times when doubt bursts through the doors of my heart. O Father, help me to be still and watch you fight the battle for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
