Exodus 14:13

13 But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.

I’ll be honest. I didn’t want to do this blog today. I am feeling a little under the weather and I have a lot to do. But I know those are just excuses. I know I always leave these blogs feeling energized and closer to God. Always make sure to keep filling yourself up with Jesus daily. It is how we stay strong and are able to overflow God’s love to others.

On to the text, we have Moses stepping out into a more confident leadership role. What he says seems insignificant, but is actually quite profound. “Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today.” How many times do you try to rescue yourself a day? How many times do you put this pressure on yourself a day? Moses is telling us something that can change our lives!

For me, I am good at taking people at their word. I’ll be honest, sometimes I feel like God is forsaking me. I know deep down He isn’t, but Satan tries to trick me into it. I then try to do everything myself. My work, my relationships, my finances are all on me to figure out and fix. These few things with a bunch of other small things begin to weigh on me. Eventually I fall. Thankfully God is there to pick me up.

God wants to rescue you. He wants to rescue you from sin, from emptiness, from shame, and anything else you’re feeling. The thing is that we try to rescue ourselves. Stand still. Trust with your whole heart that God will deliver you from these things. Your heart will never be so full.

Am I trying to save myself?

Why do I keep trying to do it myself?

Dear Lord, thank you for our savior, Jesus. It is through Him we have freedom from the chains of sin. It is through Him we have joy. Thank you for this truth. Amen.

Have a great week!
