In this short sermon, we are going to look at Exodus 14:13-14 which calls upon us as the children of God to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord without any form of fear.
But before we go into this sermon, let us outline the bible verse where we derived this sermon.
And Moses said to the people, “do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. “the LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.(Exodus 14:13-14)
What does it mean to stand still and see the salvation of the LORD?
In the context of the above story, the children of Israel, through Moses lead were approaching the red sea.
And while they were thinking or planning on how to cross, behold Pharoah who was earlier freed came to attack them with thousands of the Egyptian armies.
And lo, there was no way for them to run, so they cried out to God who gave the above instructions for them.
The most important thing we need to draw from the concluding part of this story; after we see how God divided the red sea for the Israelites to pass through and drown Pharoah and his armies, is that God is the One Who always fights every battle for His children.
All we need to do is to hold our breath, that is to exercise patience.
And for that reason, if are you a child of God who is still skeptical of the fact that God will never let you fall into the hands of your enemies.
Today He has sent me to tell you that your enemies you see today, you shall not see them again tomorrow.
Because He will fight for you and all you need to do is to hold your peace.
