“But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
God lovingly and graciously saved the Israelites from the hand of the Egyptians in one of the most amazing and faith building miracles in the whole of the Bible. God miraculously parted the Red Sea and allowed more than 1,000,000 Israelites to walk through safely and un-harmed. Doesn’t that just blow your mind? A few moments before they were moaning, complaining and full of despair. But God, yet again, showed how much He loved His chosen people and spared their lives. This wonderful miracle is remembered both in the writings in the Bible, but also across the whole world more than 2000 years later.
Yet something that stands out above all is Moses’ encouraging words to the Israelites; Be calm, stand still and watch the Lord rescue you. What powerful words of faith and complete and utter trust in God Almighty. Did God deliver? Was Moses’ trust in the right place? Absolutely, 100%. Moses’ words where confirmed when the people of Israel just stood and watched God part the seas to make a safe path for them.
Today, whatever you are faced with, just stand still, be calm and watch God part your Red Sea. Put your trust wholly in God and watch Him pull through. He is gracious, kind and powerful and He is fighting for YOU!!!!
