Exodus 14:13 – “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.”
When Moses said, “Don’t be afraid”, he equally meant to say, “Overcome your fear” for fear is a thief of faith and hope. When our troubles seem unyielding to our prayers, it is in our own interest to get above our fear by leaving it to God. Don’t think of saving yourself by fighting a natural battle! ‘Be still’, means, ‘be calm, confident and determined’. God does not need our effort or assistance to carry out His promises of deliverance.
God revealed to Moses what He would do in the circumstances and he believed. Moses was saying to the people, ‘Don’t waver in your faith; be steadfast and be still – have peace of heart, have confidence in the God you believe in. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again; the trouble you see today you will never see again’ (Exodus 14:13). Their enemies were frustrated and immediately they surrendered.
PRAYER POINTS: Lord, let my enemy see Your finger in my life, get frustrated and surrender because You have set a table before me in the presence of my enemy. What is your problem? Ask God to give you the grace to always cast your burdens upon Him as Moses did in his encounter with the Egyptian army at the Red Sea. Lord, in my encounter with the evil forces, teach me the way I should go as You did the Israelites at the Red Sea. Instruct me the way I should go as You did Moses in his encounter. Save me from the wicked plans of my adversaries as You did Daniel in the lions’ den. Deliver me from every generational curse as You did Jabez. Lord, give me power to face all the challenges of the enemy, in the name of Jesus. I loose myself from the bondage of fear, in Jesus’ name!
