Stand and See -Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 19 October Wednesday
answered the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the
deliverance the LORD will bring you today...the LORD will fight for
you; you need only to be still.’” (Exodus 14:13–14, NIV)
Stand and See
the Bible, when the people of Israel came out of slavery and were
headed toward the Promise Land, they were so happy to finally be free!
But then Pharaoh changed his mind about letting them go and came chasing
after them. They came to a dead end at the Red Sea and things looked
impossible. Instead of staying in faith and focusing on the fact that
God had delivered them before, the Israelites got upset, fearful and
started complaining, “Moses, why did you bring us out here to die?”
Moses replied, “Stand still and you will see the deliverance of the
Lord.” He went on to say, “The Lord will fight for you if you will hold
your peace and remain at rest.” The Lord was faithful to His Word and
delivered them again.
knew he had to get the people out of that negative mentality or they
would be defeated, and the same is true for you. You may be in a storm
of life, but don’t let that storm get in you. Instead, set your focus on
God because He is faithful, and He will fight your battles. Stay calm
and remain in peace today because God is going to deliver you and lead
you into your promise land!
A Prayer for Today
thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. Help me keep
my heart and mind focused on You. No matter what storm I may be facing, I
trust that You are working behind the scenes and ordering my steps to
the promise land You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
