Fights for Us

The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.

Exodus 14:14

Moses, leading the Israelites out of Egypt, stands before the Red Sea with the Egyptian army bearing down on them. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, in what looked like a dead end, Moses calms the people with these words:

“Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”

Exodus 14:13-14

Then, God commands Moses to lift his staff, stretch his hand over the sea, and divide it. Miraculously, the waves parted, the Israelites safely crossed, and the army got swallowed up in the closing sea. Nothing the people did brought them victory; the Lord did all the work. And He promises to do the same for us, turning dead ends into miraculous victories. 

Without a problem, we can’t experience a miracle. Jesus promised we would have trials in this life, but to take heart, He overcame the world. Nothing we do gives us salvation; Christ did the work for us on the cross. Trust that God will fight for you. He has already defeated death for us, and whatever mountain we face now doesn’t stand a chance against the Lord.

Remind your problems of the God you worship. No giant can stand against the Lord. When we trust God, He parts seas, moves mountains, and slays the beast.


God fights for us.


Lord, thank You for fighting for us. Help us remember our victory in You when we face our battles. No matter how hopeless the situation may seem, we have hope in You.  Let us stand firm in the face of adversity, knowing You will provide the victory. In You, we can trust.
