Exodus 14:10-14

During the Lenten season, members of Faith Lutheran Church have written our daily devotions.  Today’s writer is Davis Adams.

 

10As Pharaoh drew near, the Israelites looked back, and there were the Egyptians advancing on them. In great fear the Israelites cried out to the Lord. 11They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us, bringing us out of Egypt? 12Is this not the very thing we told you in Egypt, ‘Let us alone and let us serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” 13But Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again. 14The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still.” Exodus 14:10-14

 

Mankind is naturally fearful, lacking confidence, and nervous of what lies ahead of them in the future.  In today’s time, as well as Moses’, man is fearful of how they and their family will survive and live a happy life.  Common fears today and thousands of years ago are still the same- safety, shelter, health, food, freedom, finances, etc.  As the Egyptians are bearing down on the Israelites, Moses tells them not to fear, stand firm, and see what the Lord will accomplish for you, the Lord will fight for you. 

 

Remember, God has a purpose for you and a reason behind what happens to you.  Have faith in God, do your best to follow his will, and have comfort that God has a purpose in everything in your life and will take care of you.

Let us pray:  Heavenly Father, give us the faith to trust you in the midst of our fear, insecurities, and anxieties. Remind us that you are our God and that you will fight with and for us. Show us our purpose and guide us in your will. Amen.
