The sound of thunder could be heard from miles away, yet there were no clouds in the sky. The hooves from Pharaoh’s horses were closing in on the Israelites. Pharaoh and six hundred of his best chariots, along with every available soldier, were making their way toward the traveling multitude of emancipated slaves.
Their freedom, the hope they felt, was all but lost. The Israelites called to Moses, “Why did you bring us out into the desert to die?” They were not equipped to take on such a vast army.
Then Moses answered them, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.”
That is exactly what God did.
What do you need deliverance from? Maybe, like the Israelites, you feel like you’re trapped. For the Israelites, it was the Red Sea and the Egyptian army. For you, it may be financial strain, sickness, or sin. If that is where you are at, you don’t need to be afraid. God will fight for you! You put your trust in Him; you call out to Him, you stand firm in your time of fasting, and watch what He will do!
