The Lord will fight for you

The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” (Exodus 14:14, ESV)

Pursued by Egypt, fearing for their lives, the people of God begin to clamor. But God doesn't intend to abandon his people.

Moses calls them to stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord. They need not fight and they need not cry out to God in case he'd forgotten them, they need only wait and watch the salvation of the Lord.

Isn't this same encouragement ours?

So often we would turn to despair and doubt instead of faith. We despair that our lives possess any hope of change. We doubt that our Lord actually cares what happens to us.

But the God of the Bible is not a God of despair and doubt. No circumstance has ever overwhelmed him. Neither our weakness nor the world's hatred can cause him to falter. No doubt changes the reality that our Savior died for us and God the Holy Spirit now dwells in us.

Fear not, child of God. Stand firm. The Lord will fight for you.

Moreover, I possess none of the externally obvious signs that would indicate that I deserve to be rocking out like it's nobody's business (e.g. I don't care what you think musician outfit, “cool” ethnicity, etc.). Therefore I must daily find a way to perform my latest hits without the hundreds of people I see in traffic noticing. So I improvise. At the stop light, if I pull up in between the two cars in the next lane over, neither of them can really tell what I'm doing. Rock on my friend. If I can't hit one of those sweet spots between cars, I might just do every other line ...wishin they was dancin a jig... ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cu-ba ... They might think they saw something, do a double take, but loo
