I believe this may be the most important thing you read all year, or in your life!
The lesson that God is about to teach us…..
It is not of me, but of God.
God has given us a promise to stand on, and I put every thing I have into these words from the Bible.
“Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
What would be the hardest thing to do with the Egyptian army charging straight at you? Failing health? Failing marriage? Job loss? Family problems? Money Problems?
The hardest thing to do is just what God said, STAND STILL.
God doesn’t just play chicken; He also plays flinch. When we find ourselves in this kind of situation, we want to do something, anything. We have a nervous energy that wants to solve the problem as quickly as possible. But God tells them to do nothing but pray. The closer the Egyptian army got, the more intense their prayers became. They stood their holy ground. They prayed like they had never prayed before.
So why does God wait until the very last second to make His move? Why does He let the Egyptian army get that close? Once again God who provides just enough, parts the Red Sea just in time.
Praying is trusting that God will fight our battles for us.
Do you take your hands off the challenges you face? Maybe you are facing an extreme challenge today, I pray these words help. Let us take hands off of the problems we face and put them into the hands of God Almighty.
I am still learning to do this, it is one of the hardest things for me to do, to let go, stand still and pray.
I do know that it is the best! But the flesh tries to take over. I have learned more and more and more, that when I take my hands off, stand still and pray it works out far better than I could have ever imagined.
This morning God had me reflecting on my life up to this point. He had me revisit different situations in my life that I tried to push through. Not Good. People get hurt when we charge through problems. Then He had me look at where I am today, my family is totally reliant on God, with the ministry of FGGAM.
The past month our family has dealt with severe health issues and other challenges like many of you. I have seen friends having such horrible problems.
I am standing still, praying constantly and standing on my proclaimed holy ground, for God’s Glory alone. I know I will be tested daily, but I am digging in deep.
One of my favorite verses in my walk with Jesus Christ is…….
Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God.
Let us be in constant prayer as Paul teaches us, in the name of Jesus, Amen!
