Exodus 14:10-14, “As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!” Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Now, the Message Bible transliteration of V14 is just a tad bit straightforward; “God will fight the battle for you. And You? You keep your mouths shut!”
Perhaps your Pharaoh is your financial situation. Maybe it’s a medical condition, Satan is attacking your marriage, or an unruly supervisor or co-worker. Beloved of God, the size of your plight doesn’t determine if God will fight on your behalf.
Anything that hurts or harm you, God is acutely aware of it! When these situations occur….pray about it and don’t complain! Some battles God will empower and equip you to fight but when the odds are against you, He will certainly step right in the middle of that calamity! Silence in times of uncertainty in most cases is certainly golden.
