Stand Still and See the Salvation of the Lord

Scripture:

Exodus 14:13 "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 will see again no more forever'".

Observation:

With a massive Egyptian army in behind them and a large body of water in front of them, Israel thought they were dead for sure. They were complaining to Moses, "Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness?" Moses stands up with incredible confidence and tells them to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. He knew God well enough to know that God did lot lead them there without a plan of escape. He probably had no idea what God was going to do, but he knew God well enough to know He would do something.

Application:

Sometimes when I am in a situation where things look really bad, I find myself working harder to fix things rather than standing still and seeing the salvation of the Lord. God had proved himself to Moses ten times in a row and Moses was realizing that there was nothing impossible for God. He may not have known how, but he knew God well enough to know that God would get them out of this. Confidence comes from seeing victories in the past.

Prayer:

Lord, give us little victories to look back at and to know that You are always going to pull through for Your people. infuse me with faith this morning that You are the great deliverer. Increase my faith to be able to tell others, "Stand still and see the salvation of our God".

Yours,
Jeff
