Stand Firm


Whenever you are confronted with dire circumstances where you cannot move forward and retreat is not an option, what do you do? Many will come forward with suggestions.

Despair will tell you to give up. Hopelessness will tell you it useless. Agony will speak words of discouragement. Arrogance will tell you that you’re better than that. Impatience will tell you to do something…do anything but do it now!

Moses and the recently emancipated Hebrews in the book of Exodus faced dire circumstances on the edge of the Red Sea. God responded with “Stand still” or “Stand firm.”

What do you do? Stand ready expecting to hear your marching orders from the Master’s voice, our God instead of the voices that steer us in the opposite direction.

“Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.”

Exodus 14: 13

Lord, help me to stand firm today waiting on my marching orders instead of forcing myself into action.
