The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. (Exodus 14:14)
Even when we grumble and complain, the Lord remains faithful. He is still on our side, even though we rebel against Him. Grumbling and complaining is usually caused by fear and doubt. Here the people were certain that the Egyptians were going to overtake them. They thought that it would have been better for them had they remained in Egypt as slaves rather than to die in the wilderness. Nevertheless, Moses, the servant of God, told the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.”
Even in life’s toughest battles, the Lord will fight for His people. Therefore the message is the same for today. We are to hold our peace. We are not to complain and grumble. We are to trust in the Lord our God. Never forget that when God calls, He leads. We can completely trust in Him. There will be times that all looks hopeless, but we are not to fear. God’s timing is perfect. He is never too early nor too late. He will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.
