Mercy Is Not Receiving What you DeserveApril 14, 2015
Our physical eyesight is important but our spiritual eyesight is even more important. Not long after Moses brought the Israelites out of Egyptian slavery, they faced the Red Sea and Pharaoh’s army chasing them. Moses encouraged the people by telling them “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. He will fight for you…” (Exodus 14:13-14)
It was “natural” for them to only see the problems behind and in front of them. We all face situations or circumstances that assault our thinking and our peace tempting us to only see the impossibility of everything.
What did Moses tell the people to do? Stand still to begin with. Don’t rush out in your own strength and limited thinking and try to change things. Be still. Wait on the Lord and He will strengthen you (Psalm 27:14). Rest, that is, trust and believe in the God of your salvation and deliverance. As they did, they’d see the salvation of the Lord. It’s the same for you and me today.
Let’s focus our eyes on the Lord’s ability to work in our lives. See the protection, deliverance, victory, provision, joy, peace, and grace of God working in the midst of everything. When you’re focused on Him, you’ll be able to stand still in peace and see God transform everything.
