I loved reading these words about the Lord in Exodus this morning. I hope they bless you as well. In Exodus 14:13-14, we see such discouragement and fear as a vast army comes against the Israelites. We read this: Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
Do not be afraid. Stand firm. The Lord will fight for you. Be still.
Then, I loved reading the Song of Moses and Miriam in Exodus 15. In particular, these words remind me of who God is: “The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. . . Who among the gods is like you, Lord? Who is like you—majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders? . . . In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.” How beautiful!
All this, and I haven’t yet reached the part about the quail and the manna and God’s miraculous provision. This unchanging God still fights for us, still delivers us, still leads us, still performs miracles of provision, and still displays His strength on our behalf.
