Let the Lord Fight for You: Gospel Today Devotional - 28th February, 2024

The children of Israel were in bondage for quite a while. They were subjected to intense hardship, and slavery in the land of Egypt not until the Lord decided to visit them through his servant, Moses. But this didn't come easy as Pharaoh over and over again refused to let the people go but at last, he did.

Let the Lord Fight for You: Gospel Today Devotional - 28th February, 2024

Today, we shall be considering together a statement Moses made to the children of Israel after they had left Egypt. A statement that was meant to show them that of a truth, it was God who had granted them the deliverance they had. A statement of encouragement, and faith in God in a very trying situation. The statement is seen in the passage of scripture below:

"The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace". (Exodus 14:14).

After they left Egypt, it was recorded that the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, perhaps he thought, why did I allow these people to go? Who would serve us now? So, he brought together his men and decided to pursue them. 

When the children of Israel looked back and saw the Egyptians, they were very much afraid and began to panic. It was there, and then, Moses assured them that the Egyptians they saw at the moment, they will see them again no more forever. Then this statement followed, he shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.

What an encouraging word! Meaning, there was no need for fear, and worry, and that there was no way Pharaoh and his armies would have victory over them because the fight was the Lord's, and although they were weak, God alone was strong enough to deal with Pharaoh and his armies.

Isn't this applicable to us as believers today? Yes, of course. The word of the Lord as it came to the children of Israel many years ago is coming to you, and me today, that we need not be afraid, and although we may be weak compared to the challenges we're faced with, we have one who would fight for us, and we would just have to do nothing to come out Victorious. The fight is his, and we just have to let him fight for us. May that which you have heard today comfort, and exhort your hearts. Amen.

Thought for the Day

There's no need to panic or be worried. The fight is the Lord's. He shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. You just let the Lord fight for you.
