Exodus 14:14

The Lord your God will fight for you, you need only to be still. - Exodus 14:14

Dear heavenly Father,

I love these words that you led Moses to tell your people so they would calm down and stop fretting in a crises.  I want to remember these words when I tend to panic in situations that seem too big for me, such as when my health appears to be failing, or my children are falling to temptation or a relationship is going poorly and I can't seem to get it fixed.  I just need to be still and let you be God of my life and its outcome.  I can trust you because you did not just get me out of Egypt, but you snatched me from judgment on my entire life.  You rescued me from justice.  Because I believe in your mercy, I will trust that you will fight for me even when I cannot see you.  Amen

Having God on our side makes us willing to take on bigger challenges than when we live by our own strength.
