The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest”. Exodus 14:14 (AMPC)
In those days where it feels like everything is a battle, situations get complicated and circumstances seem set against us, isn’t it wonderful to know that we have Someone Who is 100% for us in the midst of it all?
God knows your heart—who you really are, what you so long for, hope and believe for, and He says, “Trust Me. I’ve got this. And I’ve got you.”
When you don’t know what to say, or how to say it—when you aren’t exactly sure what to do, or just when, or how to do it—He does! You can hold your peace as the battle rages and hang on to the One Who is Peace.
Remember, before the foundations of the world, He chose you as His own, and when He did, He fully intended that He would walk with you, leading and guiding you, empowering and strengthening you, encouraging and equipping you, every step of the way. In all things, beauty, He is your Advocate, always on your side. Let Him love you and lead you and yes, let Him fight for you in all the ways that need to be done too!
Step back into His arms of love, feel the strength of His embrace, and rest. God alone is your living hope. Forever faithful, trustworthy, and true!
Lord, You never say no when we ask for help—You are at the ready—willing and able if we would only let You!
Forgive me for all the ways I have entered into battles that were never meant for me. Trying to fight for what is right. Trying to fight to be free. Yet true freedom comes when I surrender it all to You and let You fight for me.
I have not always known this Lord, in the days of feeling alone, but today I choose to sit with You Jesus, my Prince of Peace, my perfect peace and from the safety of Your loving arms, I will rest and wait, while You fight for me. For in You, and because of You, I am already free.
In Your powerful and precious Name, I pray.
