" The Lord shall fight for you "    Ex  14 :10-20

The children of Israel, facing many challenges and trials had left Egypt but now  started complaining to God on their journey to the promised land.

Life is not fair. Have you heard this statement? I know that you all have  heard it many times when you turn on the news . We hear so many sad stories about young and old people  in  many difficult life situations looking for help and miracles from God. We may pray about a situation and God doesn't seem to answer us and we question what is going on !.

Where are you God? Are you even there? In Exodus 14: 11  And they said to Moses, "is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you treated us this way and brought us out of Egypt?" Moses told the people "Fear not, stand still and see the salvation. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again."

The Lord is commanding us today  to stop our complaining , the Lord will fight for us and the Lord will divide all the seas which we are facing today.The Lord will control our enemy, the Lord will confront our enemy and the Lord will conquer our enemy, so let us fight the battle with devotion and determination .

The Lord has a purpose for our life journey and the purpose  is for us to inherit that heavenly place and to occupy the land in that journey.  Any
hinderance we  may face,  will be removed by God.

PRAYER

Renew our strength, Lord. Fill us with Your supernatural power to overcome each obstacle in our path. You are our rock and our salvation and we run to You today believing that You will lift our heavy burdens from us. In Christ name we pray. Amen

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Do not be afraid, nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God's.   (  2 Chron. 20:15 )
