Be Still

He says, Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10

In Exodus 14, the children of Israel were standing at the Red Sea, besieged, as it were, by the uncrossable sea before them and the great Egyptian army behind. I’m sure they were trembling with fear, confused about their current state of affairs. Hadn’t God been with them before? So where was He now? At the height of their dismay, Moses said to them, “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

Many are worried and afraid right now. They are dealing with more chaos, danger, and uncertainty than they have ever had to face in their lives. This is not just a personal problem—it is national and worldwide. As Christians, we are called to pray, and we pray. Our ministers give us encouragement through God’s Word and many seek to put on the full armor of God to stand strong in spiritual warfare.

It seems as though we are besieged by circumstances beyond our control, standing on the brink of uncertainty. We’ve humbled ourselves, fasted and prayed, searched our hearts, and encouraged each other. We’ve taken health precautions, worn our masks, and cast our votes. So what do we do now?

It is time to be still, quiet ourselves, regain our footing—and know that He is God and that He will be exalted among the nations and in all the earth! As Moses said to the Israelites, let’s remember that the Lord will fight for us. We need only to be still!

  2. Wow! This goes right along with what God said to me after much prayer surrounding this election and the state of our country today. Early in the morning of Sat, Nov 7th, when I awakened, God put these exact words into my mind, “America is at the Red Sea.” And I had a strong urge to find what Moses said to the children of Israel when they were at the Red Sea. I felt this was God’s message for America right now. Read it in Exodus 14.13. What confirmation when I read your blog.
