Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith. Henry Ward Beecher
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.
It would have taken a lot of courage for Moses to tell the people of Israel to “stand firm” when Pharaoh’s army was behind them and the waters of the Red Sea before them.
When God speaks to us, we need to declare His word in faith, believing that when we exercise this kind of faith, we will see the hand of God move in our lives.
When we speak with our mouth what the Lord has promised, faith is applied to the situation and we can be confident of the result. When an athlete applies anti-inflammatory cream to an inflamed muscle, he expects to be relieved of the pain. Similarly, when we apply God’s word to a difficult situation, His faith is activated in us so that we can expect to see the Lord win the battle for us.
As we stand firm on His promises, let us proclaim His goodness and declare His faithfulness, knowing that we shall see the salvation of the Lord.
I give You all my fears and stand firm in Your word. You are the rock of my salvation and the strength of my life. I believe and trust in You alone. Amen.
God bless you.
Your obedient servants in Christ,
