Exodus 14:13 (New American Standard Bible) But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever.
Today, I simply want to encourage you that the Lord shares with us time and time again of how he fights our battles. It is important for us to not let our hearts become troubled as we cast our cares on God. He will surely keep us in perfect peace as our mind is stayed on him. The above passage of scripture should make us rejoice that our God speaks peace to our hearts. “Do not fear!” Our caring and loving Father does not want us to operate in fear. Then he says stand by and see the salvation of the Lord. We don’t have to put our hands on it, we don’t have to put our mouth on our battles with complaint, if anything, we should only open our mouths to magnify God and not the problems or people (spirits) that come against us. Then the Lord assures us that he is well able and equipped to accomplish this for us today while furthering our assurance that whatever has tried to trouble us, torment us, chase after us, pursue us, rob us, kill us, take away our peace and joy won’t exist. Let us exalt and magnify the Lord God and glorify Jesus for we shall see his salvation.
When God spoke these words, Pharaoh and his army came to re-capture the Israelites. I can easily imagine the Israelites hearing the familiar sounds of chariots, footmen, soldiers, so many horses racing on foot that it may have sound like the earth was about to break. The Israelites were too familiar with captivity due to their own transgressions. Their God was here to settle this once and for all. He buried their enemies, Egyptians, in the Red Sea.
