My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of “Exodus 14;14, “ Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
My Dear Children of God, the Lord will fight for you when you go through troubles or trials or when you are targeted by your own people who come against you, it may be due to a land dispute, distribution of shares among your siblings in the family, or any other matter. God will fight for you, provided you be honest and faithful to him and you need only to be still. All these days you have fought many battles in your lives by your own strength and you had never considered that God would fight for you. As a result, you have failed miserably and you might have lost many good things in life and your battle was in vain. You did not win the battle but lost the little peace that you had, Isn’t it so? therefore, you are going to make a decision today, that you are not going to fight with anyone or argue with anyone that leads to battle. Whatever troubles you face in the future, you will just transfer them to the Lord and you will remain quiet. For the Lord has said, “I will fight for you. I will do everything for you. You be still and know that I am God.” The Lord is advising you, as to how you need to face challenges through His life-giving word of God. All you need to do is to take and apply it in your life when you face storms or battles in your life. Just tell the Lord about your problems, He will fight for you. The Bible says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
This is what God expects you to do when you are confronted with your enemies. The problem may be with regard to your family life, workplace, in your ministry, or whatever it may be. The Lord says, that those who come against you in one way will flee away through seven directions. You might have had a problem even today, and you did not know how to overcome it and you think that there is no other way but to fight it out. Let us give up on revenge and we have only one way and that is the Lord. The Israelites had to cross the Red Sea that was before them and behind them was the Egyptian army. They did not know what to do, but they had to fight the battle and then cross the sea, that was before them. In that terrible situation, Moses told them, “You need not be afraid; Indeed, my Lord is with me, He will guide me. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” And so, the Lord began to fight for His people. The Lord did not send any angel to fight and kill them, but the Lord just looked at the army and the wheels in the chariot dismantled and rolled away and so the captain and the men in the army were all drowned into the sea.
They did not know what was happening. The horses were refusing to move forward. The chariots loosened themselves, and hence all the men got drowned in the sea and died. Then the Egyptians feared and said, the God of Israel is fighting for his people, the God whom they worship is powerful. God is fighting for them so let us run away from them. Although they ran back, the Lord did not let them go so easily. He covered the sea and caused them to be drowned in the sea. This is a historical event that took place in the history of Israel. God fought for them as He had promised in His word. In the same way, they who fight with you will see the power of God descend upon you, and your enemies will escape in all directions. They will recognize that your God is mightier than them and you will surely win over the battle. They will perish but you shall stand erect.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, many children who battled with their foes, by their own strength have become exhausted, you will fight for them as you have promised in your word. Let them not lose, but win the battle set before them. May your children tell you of their difficulties and they do not fight alone by themselves, for all their effort will be vain. I pray that all the children of God will not be scared of their enemies but You give them the needed strength and help them to face the battle through the strength of the Lord. Let all the enemies who come against them run away in fear of You. Let all the children of God live in peace and harmony.
