WORD FOCUS: HOLD YOUR PEACE
TEXT: Exodus 14:14 “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace….”
One time in Scripture, when the Israelites were facing an impossible situation, God told them, “Hold your peace. Remain at rest, and I will fight your battles.” Notice there was a condition, something the Israelites had to do. It’s the same for us today. Hold your peace. That indicates something is trying to take it away—thoughts of worry, fear, anxiety. You might think, “What if it doesn’t happen? What am I going to do?” If you will just stay in peace, the Creator of the universe, the Most High God will go to work on your behalf.
Remember, nothing can stand against our God. He has all power. He stopped the sun for Joshua. He closed the mouths of hungry lions for Daniel. Whatever you face in life, if you will just hold your peace and remain at rest, He will fight your battles and lead you into everlasting victory!
Peace is the foundation God uses to do every memorable thing in our lives. We need to be broken from every battle-spiritually emotionally and physically in order for God to make us lie down in green pastures. Remember God does not anoint or empower the flesh. So receive the peace that flows like a river that attends the soul of a believer in Christ Jesus.
