Exodus 14: 13

Exodus 14: 13

And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.”
Exodus 14:13

The children of Israel find themselves pinned against the Red Sea by Pharaoh and the Egyptian army. After God displayed His mighty power through the 10 plagues, they left Egypt with boldness, but that boldness had now turned to fear. God commands two things for them: One, do not be afraid, and two, stand still. The Bible is replete with the admonishment, “Do not be afraid.” As the saying goes, “God’s got this.” Know that when we think we are facing the insurmountable, God is still in charge and has a plan, and that plan is perfect. So it is best to stay out of the way by standing still and letting God do the work, rather than us making our own plans and trying to step out in our own strength.

Lord, we may not always know what you have in store for us, but may we rest assured knowing that since you see the end from the beginning that your plan is perfect, and may we stand still knowing that you will accomplish your work in our lives.
