Quiet Power

Exodus 14: 14

The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.

The Amplified version of the Bible reads, “The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.” This is an easy scripture to read right over but if we will open our hearts and minds to it, it will grow into a very large ministry to our hearts. There are many times when we want to fight our own battles but God told the Israelites to hold their peace. In other words, stay still and silent. God is going before you to fight your battles for you. This was just before the Red Sea was parted and the Egyptians were swallowed up in it. The Israelites had to do nothing but cross over on dry land. The Lord did the rest. Isaiah 43:2 reads, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.” 

Father God is leading us into trusting him at a new level. He wants us to release our troubles to him, rely on him and watch the victory unfold before us while we retain our peace. You just go to prayer and hold this scripture up to Him. Tell him that you are going to let him handle this problem for you. Then pray for (not about) the people involved in the situation. Your life then becomes about the Lord Almighty and your trust in him rather than your cogent arguments or the persuasiveness of your speech. Life is no longer about what you can accomplish through the force of your personality but rather how deeply you can trust your Father. He is waiting for people to depend on him and the promises he has made to us. Hold him to his word and let him deliver you.
