Organizing the Inside – Day 79 God’s Got It, Stand Firm

The Lord will fight for you and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.
~ Exodus 14:14

Have you ever wanted to give up in the middle of a battle?
Your prospective is everything when you are in battle.  Complications would be minimized if we would trust God and not try to handle things ourselves.  Impatience will cause you to want to take matters into your own hands. The Israelites were caught between the red sea and Pharaoh’s army.  As the army advanced forward and closed in, they felt like it was over.  It “looked” like they were in a hopeless situation and they began to complain; because of fear they gave up on trusting God. Their situation appeared impossible and like many battles we are in as Christians, if we “look” at the circumstance we will surely lose hope.

When your situation looks impossible is the time you have to trust God the most.
When your back is against the red sea and the enemy is quickly closing in on you; that’s the time to STAND and see the salvation of the Lord. God spoke through Moses, and perhaps He has spoken to you because you are at a point where you want to give up.  Know that God’s got it.  He absolutely cannot fail. Be encouraged!  13Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today…”

God will fight for you and protect you.
Of course it can be frightening to be in a battle when it seems like you’re doomed.  No matter how bad things are right in the heat of the battle, the unmistakable truth is, you will win.  Trust God with your whole heart; you will make it through.  When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were thrown into the fiery furnace their situation appeared hopeless.  Can you imagine what people must have thought? I’m sure some said, “Surely they are going down.” The heat that came from the furnace was so deadly; it killed the men that threw them in. Once the king realized his plan to kill them wasn’t working, he called them to come out and talk with him.  Not even a trace of smoke was on their clothes. God was not only with them in the fire, He protected them, not one hair was harmed.

Seeing the salvation of the Lord requires faith on your part.
Who hasn’t at one time or another wanted to run and hide? Remaining steadfast in your faith can be done. With God all things are possible. Faith and patience are the power twins to get you through the battle.  Know that God promised He would never leave you or forsake you. He remained with the Israelites through many difficult circumstances. His word is undisputable. He stands Lord over His word to make sure it is performed.  As Children of the Most High God we walk by faith and not by sight.  No matter how it looks, God has already won the battle. No more crying, worrying, and complaining… it’s time to STAND and see the salvation of the Lord.

How I wish I’d had this wisdom to read a week ago! I was in another country, without the safety nets of friends and family, and fighting a spiritual battle. You wrote: “With God all things are possible. Faith and patience are the power twins to get you through the battle.” This was exactly what I learned there in Guatemala, as I learned to STAND. Thank you for sharing.

Hey Cristal, thanks for the comment. I think God provides a special covering when we travel. Sometimes it’s a different feeling and you know He’s there, but when you can’t sense that covering it’s faith that lets us know He’s still there. Isn’t God so awesome?


Share encouragement!
