“The Lord your God will fight for you.  You need only to be still.”  Exodus 14:14 

Dear Lord, I have found few words more comforting especially when I am facing unresolved problems and big issues in my life.  You had Moses and your people backed up to the Red Sea.  He was standing there with 2 million people including grandparents and infants.  The Egyptian army was coming to annihilate them.  They had nowhere to go and nothing they could do.  Then you stepped in with these words.  “I will fight for you.  Just be still.”  I like to remember them when others criticize me.  I like to remember them when I am blindsided by big problems.  You have adopted me into your fold.  You have put your name on my back and my name in your heart.  You will fight for me.  I’ve seen you turn things around in unbelievable ways throughout my life.  Thanks for giving me a word of comfort to cling to when I am scared.  It gives me peace and confidence.  Amen. 

When we know God is on our side, we feel taller, stronger and more invincible.
