THEME: THE LORD SHALL FIGHT FOR YOU
TEXT: Exodus 14:10-20
Memory Verse: Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still”
The Lord is a man of war, the Lord is His name. He has never lost any battle; He is the Lord of Hosts. This morning text is just a testimony of what God can do for you if you choose to cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you. Quite a number of challenges come our way in life which tends to over weigh our strength, our connection, our resources, our power, our ability, our strategies, our plans, our background and so much more. But we have a God who cannot be dared by any battle no matter how strong. He does everything to defend His people in the face of any challenge or trouble. So many promises He has made that guarantee our total victory over the advances and devices of the devil.
You only need to be sure of your position in Him and do not allow fear to rule your heart, just like Moses said to the people in verse 13. Fear is a torment, with venom to kill your faith and you must not allow it to grow in your heart, only then is victory sure.
You also should not easily forget what God had done for you in the past. Had the Israelites not forgotten, they ought to have known that God, who performed 12 miracles to free them from slavery in Egypt could fight the surging Egyptian troops. Always appreciate God for all He has done in your life and humbly ask for more. You can read further the following passages for His promises – Psalm 20:6-8, Isaiah 54:17,49:24-26, Jeremiah 50:33-34.
Conclusively, sing the hymn EMHB 504- Leave God to order all thy ways
PRAYER: In faith, though may be as small as the mustard seed, I command by faith, that every battle and opposition should bow before me today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
