He will fight for you
Exodus 14:14 – The LORD will fight for you; you only need to be still.
Whenever I read this verse, I picture God walking ahead of us clothed in heavy amour, with a sword in His hand. He’s fighting opposition, battles and the enemy who tries to attack. He’s fighting some battles that we can’t even see. We’re walking behind Him, totally safe and totally protected.
But sometimes, the bigger battles that we do see – we get scared and freak out. We try to take the battle into our own hands. Sometimes we completely forget about the One who has already promised to fight for us.
Have you ever tried to hold a baby who wriggles and screams? Frustrating, isn’t it?
In our walk with God, we need to realise that He is our Refuge, our Protector and our Saviour. Our own strength will never measure up to His, so there is no point in even trying to take over the battle.
Whatever you’re facing today, whether it’s the hardest battle of your life so far or just everyday opposition that you’re growing tired of… Remember Who walks ahead of you. You may not see Him fighting for you, but He always is and always will.
