The pressures of the world are rushing ever near you. You feel like you should not have made that good move that you did. Things have changed, and right now it just does not seem like it was the right move to make. Hold on. Be strong. Be strong in the Lord; or as Moses said, “Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD…”
“And Moses said unto the people, ‘Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will show you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:13-14 (KJV).
The LORD had done many mighty, and marvelous things to bring the children of Israel to the edge of the Red Sea. There had been a complete destruction of the economy of Egypt, and their demon gods put to destruction as well. God the LORD had been exalted. Now they were in a tight situation. The Sea was before them, the rocks at their backs and the Egyptian army, with chariots and mighty warriors were coming with great speed, and they would be arriving soon.
When you have followed God’s plan, and you have reached the edge of decision, and it seems as though there is no place to go. That is the time to believe and trust the LORD God. It is not a time to complain, or wonder why did I leave where I was, thinking everything was fine, comfortable, and certainly did not have this problem coming at me.
It is time to see the salvation of the LORD. If He has led you out, then He will lead you through that barrier that is ahead of you. Trust Him. Believe, and you will see the salvation of the LORD.
