Holding Our Peace

“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.” Exodus 14:14

In this key scripture, when the Israelites were facing an impossible situation, God told them, “Hold your peace. Remain at rest, and I will fight your battles.” Notice there was a condition though, something the Israelites had to do and it’s the same for us today  ~ hold your peace! This statement indicates something is trying to take it away ~ thoughts of worry, fear, anxiety. We might think, “What if it doesn’t happen? What am I going to do?” If we will just stay in peace, the Creator of the universe, the Most High God, the PRINCE OF PEACE, will go to work on our behalf.

Remember, nothing can stand against our God, He has all power. He stopped the sun for Joshua and He even closed the mouths of hungry lions for Daniel for crying out loud! Then what in this world would He NOT do for us?

Whatever “fight” we maybe facing now, or in the future, if we will just hold our peace and remain at rest, God promises He will fight our battles and lead us into everlasting victory!

Father, today I put my trust and hope in You. I choose to hold my peace knowing that You will fight my battles. Thank You for working all things out for my good in Jesus’ name. Amen.
