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.
