I noticed a few things about the verses I hadn't noticed before (is God's word not just awesome!)
- Do not be afraid - why? God sent them in that direction, He knows what was going on. TRUST
- Stand still - you don't have to do anything but TRUST, and then react on that trust - see the salvation of the Lord.
- Today - I think the Israelites knew they were heading for the dead sea. Do you think they, like us were trying to figure out what to do when they got there? Doubt and confusion stirring their emotions? God did not tell them the plan before they set out. He did not have a pow-wow with them, discuss the options, plan stratergy, etc. Can you imagine ..."And I'm going to part the sea, so you can walk through on the bottom..." I can imagine their reaction to that plan! He said Go. Because on the day, He brought His plan for them into action, He parted the sea - they had to TRUST - and God actioned.
God sorted out their problem on that day, so that the Egyptians would never again be a problem to them. He wanted them to TRUST His way, because His way - SORTED OUT THE PROBLEM FOR GOOD!
What are the Egyptians in your life?
Do not be afraid - TRUST God, stand still and see how God makes a way for you (for His glory) as you hold your peace - and - the Egyptians will be no more.
