How to win the war

Read: Exodus 14

Have you ever felt like you were in a war you couldn’t win? Maybe your dream job turned out to be miserable. Or your happily ever after was actually a strained marriage. It could be that the child you prayed over for so long made one poor decision after another. There are times in life when we feel helpless to fight the battles we’re facing.

In Exodus 14, the Israelites were camped out with the Red Sea ahead of them, the desert behind them, and the Egyptian army closing in. There was nowhere to go and they were powerless against their enemy. But the Israelites didn’t have to form a battle plan or even raise a sword because God was their weapon. In Exodus 14:14, Moses tells the people,“The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.”

God didn’t just know the struggles the Israelites were facing, He also knew how they would overcome them. So He put the people where they needed to be, where victory would be won. God parted the Red Sea letting the Israelites cross on dry ground. As the Egyptians followed in pursuit, God let the waters go, destroying the entire army. He won the battle for them.

No matter what kind of war you’re in, God is your weapon. You are right where He wants you and you have everything you need to win because He is fighting for you.

Reflect

  • Can you remember a time when you felt like you couldn’t do anything to change your circumstances?
  • How can you see God fighting for you as you look back on that time?
  • If you’re in a battle right now, surrender your will to His and ask Him to guide you to victory!
