"The Lord will fight for you, while you keep silent.” Exodus 14:14
The Israelites departed Egypt and began their journey into the wilderness to worship God at Mount Sinai. Not long after their departure, Pharaoh was approaching and he was determined to capture the Israelites to bring them back to Egypt. The children of Israel feared their potential capture and cried out to the Lord. In their fear, they also became angry and cried out against Moses and blamed him for bringing them out of Egypt. As the Israelites complained to Moses, Moses spoke in faith by reminding them that the Lord would fight for them.
Shortly after, the Israelites saw the Lord part the Red Sea to save them from the hand of Pharaoh and the Egyptians. It was very clear that the Lord heard their prayer, for the Red Sea only remained parted long enough for the Israelites to cross and then the waters reconvened to drown Pharaoh's army.
Think of a time when you were faced with great difficulty and great fear and you felt that there was nothing that you could do. Did you call out to the Lord to help you or did you begin to become angry with the Lord and speak out in anger to those around you? Remember what Moses told the Israelites, "The Lord will fight for you, while you keep silent" (Exodus 14:14). What Moses spoke to the Israelites is true for us today (Exodus 14:25; 15:3; Deuteronomy 1:30; 3:22; Joshua 23:3; 2 Chronicles 20:29; Nehemiah 4:20). Don't respond in anger towards God or begin to blame others or complain because of fear. God will fight for you, while you keep silent. Keep praying, keep believing, keep praising. God hears and God answers prayer - He will fight for you.
