Common Sense REBORN Devotion

March 8

13Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid.  Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.  The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.  14The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  (Exodus 14:13-14, The Jesus Bible)

Good Morning fam!  Yesterday, I watched SGZ3 scooting in the wrong direction as she was trying to go forward, and I thought to myself:  isn’t that exactly how we treat our relationship with God?  We want to keep moving forward in our closeness to Him, but we always find ourselves slipping back the opposite way.  Slipping back into sin.  Slipping back into the distractions of this world.  Slipping back into old ways we thought we had left behind.

Well, as the story of Moses and the Israelites flight from Egypt teaches us above, the Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still. 

What do you need deliverance from today?  While we Americans are not facing oppression from something as obvious as an enslaving government, we have allowed much in America to enslave us.  We are addicted to drugs, to alcohol, to porn, to power, to wealth, to success.  We allow our careers to enslave us and be the Pharaoh of our lives.  The same God that parted the Red Sea so the Israelites could find safe passage will perform the same miracles in your life to give you safe passage from whatever oppression you face today.  The oppressor you see today, you will never see again.  The Lord still fights for you, you need only to be still. Do not be afraid. I pray courage for your heart. Today you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you. No more moving in the wrong direction. Fall on your knees, pray in earnest, praise with confidence, and be still. Let the Lord lead you into the life you have always wanted, needed, and desperately sought. Every hour of every day, the Lord will fight for you. Just get out of the way and let Him.
