JANUARY 13 – FLEE
Exodus 14:25– “… let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians.
How often do we face obstacles that seem as if they will crush us? We are consumed with worry and doubt. We don’t know how we will get through a particular situation. God says in the 37 Psalm to “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, … .” He also says “Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not theyself… “ Do not get irritated or agitated because of your enemy.
If we could be obedient and put our trust in the LORD, how much better our health would be. There will always be those that oppose us. Don’t worry. There will always be those that want to destroy us, Don’t worry. Our trust is, or rather should be, in the LORD and not our own understanding.
There are times that fear and uncertainty causes us to stop. Remember that Israel was caught between mountains on each side, the sea in front and Pharoah’s army to the rear. God provided a way for them by opening the Red Sea for a safe passage for Israel. This safe passage became a death trap for Pharoah’s army. God delivered the nation of Israel against all odds.
God loves you just as much as He loves Israel. We may face trials and tribulations but God say “fret no thyself.” Do not worry I am hear and I will fight for you. I will deliver you from or deliver you through every problem and trial that you will face. I love you and will keep you from all harm. How much faith do you have in God?
