Stand Firm : The Lord Will Deliver You
Scripture Text: Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.” Exodus 14:13
One of the great theme of the Bible is that God is our Deliverer. God delivers his people from harm. He rescues us from danger, frees us from captivity and saves us from our sin.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. Psalms 34 :17
A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all. Psalms 34 :19
In the Bible, God led the Israelites by way of the wilderness toward the Red Sea. As the people camped at the edge of the Red Sea, they noticed that the mountains were on one side, and the sea was on the other side of them.
When the Israelites saw Pharaoh’s soldiers in the distance coming toward them, it appeared as though they were trapped with no apparent way out. The people cried out to Moses in despair. There seemed to be no hope for them at all.
On the other hand, Moses trusted God during this impossible time. Moses directed the people’s attention to God and said:
“Do not be afraid. Stand firm. And you will see the deliverance of the Lord. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:13
Moses lifted up his staff and stretched out his hand over the sea and divided it. God intervened and caused a strong wind to blow. The waters parted. And the people walked on the sea floor, on dry ground, safely to the other side.
Similar to the Israelites, at times you can be put into a temporary, yet difficult, place or a seemingly impossible circumstance. Yet, what looked like a mess for the Israelites, God turned into a miracle, and today He can do the same for you.
Today, no matter what challenge you are facing, do not be afraid, stand firm and go forward.
You have come too far to back down and quit. Trust God even though things don’t make complete sense to you at the moment. Seek God earnestly in prayer.
“He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him.” Psalms 91 :15
There is no obstacle that is too big for God to turn around for your good.
Are you facing a seemingly impossible situation?
Maybe, you feel completely trapped with no solution in sight. Perhaps you’re facing a challenge where there is no solution.
Is your heart heavy as you can’t figure out what to do next?
You could be doubting, “How can things change for the better?”
- Trust in God’s deliverance
- He will deliver you as you put your faith in him
God can change impossible situations. Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.
He will provide what you need in miraculous ways. And it is going to be far better than you can ever imagine.
Be Blessed & Be Encouraged!
