“Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today.”

Exodus 14:13

To be fair to the Israelites, this must have been a pretty difficult instruction to obey! With their backs to the Red Sea and a great army bearing down on them, the natural tendency might have been to run for it! Whether they were rooted to the spot in terror, or genuinely shared Moses’ faith might be debatable! What was beyond doubt was Moses’ unshakeable belief in God. ‘The Lord will fight for you,’ he asserted confidently! With God on his side, Moses was certain of victory. Nothing changes, if God is for us, who can be against us? (Rom.8: 31)
